3. Miscelaneous Filmworks Pieces
At our concerts, a varied mix of Zorn's Filmworks pieces can be played live by Tirzah : from Jewish to Latin themes, from intmate and melancholic to bright and upbeat. From broad tapestries of sound to delicate repetitive laceworks.
The soundtrack from "The Rain Horse" can be played with or without the screening of the short animation movie. Some intimate themes like "The Rain Horse", "Bird in the Mist" or "Tree of Life" are set against more vivid ones like "The Stallion" or "Danse Exotique".
The themes that we play from "Secret Lives" can also be perfomed with or without a narrator.
