Reminds me somewhat of Yamatsuka Eye's "duet" with Zorn. No words.

He has an entire album full of nothing but crazy voices and sounds he can make. Mike Patton's insanity knows no bounds.

Are you talking about 'adult themes for a voice'? That ones pretty impressive, but it wears on the ears after a while. I'm a big fan of zorn and yamatsuka eyes work together, especially their second collaborative album nani nani ii, which is a lot like that video.

Yeah, I don't really care much for it. It was kind of cool to hear it, but it's nothing I could really just listen to again. Kinda out there.

Naked City
Leng Tch'e

This album is f*cked up lol. Yamatsuka Eye really wants to sound like somebody succumbing to Leng Tch'e. The album cover mixed with the sounds is gunna give me nightmares. I'm surprised it took me this long to try this album.

Aka the best living composer, and one of the most important of all time (no ****).

He is as important to our time as Beethoven was to his day.

Zorn, the classical composer, jazz saxophonist, composer of XYZ genres of music (including the popular Naked City and Painkiller bands). Doesn't get much better than that.

From his earliest projects to his current ones, he's covered so much ground and holds such a strong artistic integrity the whole way through.

The recent "Songs For Petra" album is also really fun and beautiful.
