John Zorn's FILMWORKS VI features music for three films: "Anton, Mailman," "Mechanics of the Brain," and "The Black Glove." The first set of songs is surprisingly laid-back and features the ever-extraordinary guitar work of Marc Ribot backed by the inventive rhythmic support of bassist Greg Cohen and percussionist Cyro Baptista. Though Zorn joins in briefly on alto sax, he wisely allows the spotlight to shine on the beautifully understated playing of these frequent collaborators. Ribot is also on hand for the chaotic music of "Mechanics of the Brain," but here violinist Mark Feldman and cellist Erik Friedlander (playing like a paired-down Kronos Quartet) are in the foreground, with Ikue Mori and Zorn providing background beats and sound effects. Finally, Zorn's elemental score for "The Black Glove" employs only the sounds of fire, water, wind, and footsteps in a minimalist display of sound design. Although the three sets of music are drastically different, it's this diversity that once again reinforces Zorn's status as a major modern composer.
