US Price $16.00
Hypnotic, sensual and evocative music for Martina Kudlacek’s brilliant and detailed documentary on the life and work of underground film legend Maya Deren. Mixing myth and ritual with avant-garde dance and film techniques, Maya forged a creative language that continues to resound in the very best of today’s experimental artists. The music here moves from nostalgia to mystery, capturing the many moods of Maya’s life and art. Performed by Erik Friedlander, Jamie Saft and Cyro Baptista, In the Mirror of Maya Deren also features the unique piano stylings of John Zorn over three dreamy string arrangements. From Klezmer to classical, Haitian drumming to Indonesian gamelan, easy listening to minimalism, this score is one of Zorn’s most beautiful and touching listening experiences.
