Ghost Trance Music

Anthony Braxton 12(+1)tet

Friday, October 19, 2007

World-renowned saxophonist and composer Anthony Braxton, with his 12-piece ensemble the 12(+1)tet, will perform and conduct from his most recent series called Ghost Trance Music.

The performers play and conduct, taking different roles, as they collage compositions from Braxton's Ghost Trance catalogue. As a collective, the group moves freely between the performance of compositions and improvisations, between solos and ensemble playing – and yet create a magical unity full of sparks. This is unusual music that carries away all those willing to let go into its mystery. Come experience this optimistic and surprising frontier of contemporary music, performed under the inspiration and direction of Anthony Braxton, one of America's most dynamic musical forces.
