Friday, January 25, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
The 11-person Tri-Centric Vocal Ensemble perform works from Anthony Braxton’s Syntactical Ghost Trance Music system—demonstrating the unique sonic tapestry of the compositions and the possibilities of the vocal choir—in celebration of the release of GTM (Syntax) 2017: an album documenting all twelve compositions of his system recorded under the guidance of Anthony Braxton himself.
The evening closes with a performance of another Braxton music system: Echo Echo Mirror House Music, by the duo of Carl Testa on electronics and Cory Smythe on piano.
