Abstract:

Pianist, composer, and affiliate of Adams House, Stephen Drury worked with undergraduates on Zorn's piece "Cobra". The two two-hour rehearsals with 15 undergraduate musicians prepared for a two-hour performance/workshop/open reading with Zorn himself in Adams House Lower Common Room. About 120 observers attended this performance by Zorn and the students. One of Zorn's "game pieces", "Cobra", is performed with a prompter and an ensemble of variable size (in this instance 14) throwing cues back and forth to establish musical rules. Zorn served as prompter and then answered questions from the audience concerning his ideas on improvisation and the unprecedented juxtapositions of style and sounds he seeks.
