Prende il via domani a New York, presso il club The Stone, il tour de force musicale voluto da Zorn e Steve Feigenbaum per portare in città il verbo CuneiformCuneiform at The Stone, due settimane di concerti - due ogni sera - dal 15 al 30 novembre con protagonisti gruppi e artisti tra i più rappresentativi della benemerita etichetta di Silver Spring, con Hamster Theatre, Thinking Plague, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, Rattlemouth, Forever Einstein, Roswell Rudd con Ideal Bread, Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Claudia Quintet, Mahavishnu Project, Gutbucket e Doctor Nerve tra i molti molti nomi coinvolti.

Informazioni e vari materiali aggiuntivi si trovano al sito dell'etichetta, mentre speciali antologie audio dedicate alle due rassegne sono disponibili gratuitamente presso Bandcamp.

When one of avant-garde music's chief protagonists, John Zorn, asked Steven Feigenbaum, head of Cuneiform Records, to curate two weeks of live music at Zorn's NYC venue, The Stone, avant-music fans worldwide knew to expect an unprecedented treat. Unveiling his vision for Zorn's visionary space, Feigenbaum & company proudly present Cuneiform at The Stone, a music festival / label showcase that exceeds all musical expectations. From Nov.15-30, 2011 - the two weeks spanning Thanksgiving holiday - Cuneiform serves up a staggering feast of jazz, rock, electronic and beyond-genre music in The Stone. Featuring 25 groups who record for the label, many of them travelling to NYC from across the USA, Cuneiform at The Stone brings to lower Manhattan a sonic cornucopia, packed with revered musical icons and fiery rising stars. Concurrent with its two-week New York festival at The Stone, Cuneiform will present a two-day music festival in Baltimore, called Cuneifest: Cuneiform Comes to Baltimore. Cuneifest features a 6-band rock showcase at Baltimore's Orion Sound Studios on Nov. 19th, and a 5-band jazz showcase at An Die Musik on Nov. 20th, 2011.
