Cobra (1984): John Zorn (1953-)

Cobra (1984), by John Zorn (1953-), is an unpublished musical composition for a group of musical improvisers and a prompter. Devised of a pre-conceived system of detailed rules but no pre-conceived timeline of events, this piece uses a set of cues notated on cards to direct the musicians on how to proceed.

Due to the lack of traditional musical notation and unknown instrumentation, as well as the use of improvisation, this piece may sound very different performance to performance.
