Nicholas V. Elbakidze; John Zorn’s “Khebar”, 2018

John Zorn’s “Khebar” really changed the way in which I view music as an art. Personally, I do not express myself through music as it always seemed as an intimidating form of expression. John Zorn utilized musical instruments in ways which I had never seen before, mainly the way he transitions between playing with a bow and using his fingers. As a person who knows little to nothing about the musical arts I find Mr. Zorn’s work to be extremely interesting as he has opened my mind the possibilities of how music can be used to express the relationship between the old and new.
