Written in December of 2020, "Multiplicities:A Repository of Non-Existent Objects" is a collection of twenty musical aphorisms inspired by the writings and thought of Gilles Deleuze. "Volume One," released in 2022, featured the first set of ten compositions performed by the powerful electric ensemble "Chaos Magick". This second set is played here by Zorn’s newest acoustic jazz ensemble "Incerto," featuring virtuoso masters Julian Lage, Brian Marsella, Jorge Roeder, and Ches Smith. The performances are passionate, tight, and endlessly imaginative. Filled with unexpected twists and turns, this is a wildly varied exploration of instrumental music at its most extreme! Modern musical philosophy for adventurous, discerning minds.
