New Issue of Sound American Devoted to Anthony Braxton
The latest issue of Nate Wooley's excellent online journal Sound American is devoted to Anthony Braxton. It's an amazing issue. It focuses on the last two decades of Braxton's work, including essays on the Ghost Trance Music, Pine Top Aerial Music, Echo Echo Mirror House Music, the Trillium Operas, and so much more. There's a generous helping of views of Braxton's scores and advice on how to interpret them, as well as numerous sound files that help illustrate the various concepts. It's a wealth of Braxtonia!
