I’m a huge fan of your work with John Zorn. I’ve been curious for a while about Six Litanies for Heliogabalus. Were all the parts completely written by Mr. Zorn or did you have any input on the bass lines?


As with most of Zorn’s music that I play there is a mix. For the most part everything is written, although sometimes I’ll show up and he’ll ask for variations or to disregard the bassline altogether and play another written line or something else that he feels important in the arrangement. I often have input in the lines and sometimes he’ll ask specifically for the “Dunn variations”. Six Litanies happens to be my favorite Moonchild record.
