John Zorn: "Redbird"

The title track here is disturbingly hypnotic. I'm not sure what to make of it, but it definitely has an effect.

Equally powerful in a completely different way is "Dark River," a piece scored for four bass drums--and only four bass drums. Most of the information is nearly subsonic. Ultra-hip.
