A highly unusual composition, even for John Zorn, "Chimeras" consists of twelve movements (and one interlude) scored for sextet plus voice. Each movement pits the vocalist (primarily soprano Ilana Davidson, joined by Elizabeth Farnum on two movements) against some combination of the accompaniment– two reeds (Tara O'Connor on flutes, Mike Lowenstern on clarinet), two strings (Jennifer Choi on violin and Fred Sherry on cello), keyboard (Stephen Drury, performing at piano, organ, and celesta) and percussion (William Winant). The music is loosely influenced by Schoenberg's "Pierrot Lunaire", with the same instrumentatal arrangement but with percussion added), but it's probably the cover, a reproduction of a painting by Heironymous Bosch, that best sums up what's held inside.

Centuries after an ecological catastrophe drained the oceans and gave birth to mutant chimeras, humanity has regressed to a primitive state and only a few tribes remain.
