John Zorn, in red, conducts music from "Book of Angels" with the Bar Kokhba Sextet (featuring Marc Ribot on guitar, Mark Feldman on violin, Erik Friedlander on cello and Cyro Baptista on percussion) during his "Masada Marathon" at Lincoln Center in New York on March 30, 2011.

For John Zorn, realizing an ambitious, 11-album project was only possible through a crowdfunding campaign — except that the company he used, PledgeMusic, went bankrupt. It may cost him a lot of money.
