Album Release of Something of Life
Something of Life is the debut solo album of cellist, Jeffrey Zeigler on Innova Records. After eight seasons as a member of the Kronos Quartet, Zeigler is forging a new path as a soloist and collaborative artist moving fluidly across style and genre. His recent collaborations include such artists as Andy Akiho, Laurie Anderson, Nora Chipaumire, Hauschka, Vijay Iyer, David Krakauer, the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and Kimmo Pohjonen and he has given the world premiers of works written for him by Mohammed Fairouz, Jesse Jones, John King, Glenn Kotche, Gity Razaz and John Zorn.
Something of Life features new works by Philip Glass, Glenn Kotche, Felipe Perez Santiago, Paola Prestini, Gity Razaz and John Zorn with special guest performances by Glenn Kotche, Felipe Perez Santiago and Jason Treuting from So Percussion.
Something of Life is a sonic exploration of human existence. The journey begins with the discovery of a human being through religion and their questions of faith and belief. The album then continues on a path through fantasy, magic, memories and the cosmos before finally being brought back to earth where one must find resolution with their fate.
Shadow Lines by Gity Razaz and Something of Life by Glenn Kotche were commissioned by VisionIntoArt. The CD release will be accompanied by a video release by VisionIntoArt of Glaub by Felipe Perez Santiago and Listen, Quiet by Paola Prestini. Both of these films are by S. Katy Tucker and were commissioned by VisionIntoArt.
