Formations is a monthly music series dedicated to fostering the growth of new and improvised music in Milwaukee.


 

Cobra, taking its name from a popular World War II simulation board game, is an improvisational game piece created by New York-based saxophonist and composer John Zorn. In this piece, audiences will be entertained both aurally and visually as performers wave their hands and give signals to a prompter. The prompter then flashes cards to the performers that influence how the piece develops. No two performances of Cobra are alike. In fact, no two performances of Cobra are remotely similar with its open instrumentation and open improvisation-based playing.
