"That the soul was not a fact, a simple thing you were, and possessed, had seemed to Sandro so reasonable. Still he believed it. That reality, in a sense, was not an objective place where you were thrust. You had to maintain your hold on it by vigilantly keeping watch over whatever slight and intangible thing gave your life its meaning. Call it a soul, or a presence. Whatever it was, a prisoner or guest and you had to trick it or petition it into lingering.

"People weighted themselves, Sandro knew, if not with stones.

"A movie, a lover. Friends. Complicities. A certain amount of success. These were decent crutches, provided they could be changed up often enough. And art, of course. Making art was really about the problem of the soul, of losing it. It was a technique for inhabiting the world. For not dissolving into it."    

— Rachel Kushner, The Flamethrowers

Inspired by Rachel Kushner's novel The Flamethrowers, Gabriel Zucker's eight-movement composition Weighting is a raw emotional journey of dynamic rhythmic complexity, lyrical melodies, and evocative soundscapes. A record of the piece, featuring Zucker, O'Farrill, Trudel, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, comes out November 16 on ESP-Disk'.

Gabriel Zucker is a pianist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York, whose work combines maximalist compositions with the progressive improvisation of New York’s creative music scene. His music has received two ASCAP composition awards, and was awarded 4.5 stars in Downbeat magazine. A Yale graduate and Rhodes Scholar, Zucker has performed throughout New York at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Jazz Gallery as well as in 18 countries around the world.
