Electric Masada - At the Mountains of Madness

John Zorn's bizarre Masada project stretches over more than 500 songs and several different musical combos. This particular iteration, including Tom Waits alumni Marc Ribot and Greg Cohen, along with Japanese drum guru Ikue Mori, pushes the concept further into noise territory than the other, slightly more musical, variations. Masada concerns itself with explorations of Jewish Classical music from the perspective of a modern and radical member of the community; the songs are intentionally short and playable by small groups. This live recording is from Moscow and Ljubljana.
"Idalah-Abal" and "Metal Tov"
