To keep up with the contemporary avant-garde and experimental movements, we take a look at Downtown New York's avant-garde music scene and trace the iconic, highly prolific and provocative activity of composer, performer, publisher John Zorn. Ever since the 60s, jazz-fusion musicians have experimented with the explosive mixture of musical styles and have detonated musical themes, proportions and harmony in music, in order to release instead improvisation, unpredictability, discontinuity, a-tonality, etc., to confront us with what escapes us and surprises us in music. In this context, we focus on the artist John Zorn, given that he challenged all musical conventions and showed us that all boundaries are permeable, dissolvable and can merge. We trace in various positions, comments, interviews, the arguments of musicologists like Marcel Cobussen, journalists like Hank Shteamer, or of musicians collaborating with John Zorn, in order to understand how this avant-garde community coalesced around him, what the remarkable initiatives are that propelled John Zorn onto the artistic scene and what the impact of his complex activity is, the creation of new practices and new musical universes, absolutely surprising.
