4.5 superbEasterInTheBatcave | January 25th 16

A tribute to French activist Jean Genet consisting of four chamber music file-card compositions. Very dark, atonal stuff, and not easy listening by any means. Features three members of Mr. Bungle (Mike Patton, Trey Spruance, and William Winnant), but if you're expecting this to sound anything like their material then prepare to be disappointed. "IV: Black" is the best track here. It's basically a dark ambient piece, but it's a very effective one. I dig "I: Blue" and "II: Yellow" also, though not as much. "III: Pink" is too self-indulgent to be entirely enjoyable. Overall, while no place for a Zorn beginner, Elegy is a worthwhile listen.
