Composer John Zorn returns to Spinning On Air to present recordings of his Masada project. Comprised of over 600 pieces, Zorn's Masada "songbooks" invite the performer to arrange and interpret Zorn's melodies and chords, making each performance a kind of collaboration. We hear from Medeski, Martin and Wood; Uri Caine; Marc Robot; and others. Zorn talks with host David Garland about Masada and the upcoming Masada Marathon at New York City Opera, plus NYC Opera's staged performance of Zorn's monodrama "La Machine de l’être."
