Anthony Braxton will present a talk in WFU’s Hanes Gallery concerning the composer’s ideas of “image modeling”.
Free and open to the public.
1994 MacArthur “genius” Fellow and 2014 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, Anthony Braxton, has, from early in his performing life, created graphic scores as a way to visualize sound, space, performers’ positions, and time. These scores range from geometric to gestural graphic notations, but also include humorous drawings and collages.
His music has evolved to encompass a full spectrum of scales, from solo and small groups to opera, and employs several different “systems” which joyfully erase the boundaries of genre and enthusiastically draw from many wells of music and “sound” traditions.
On March 15, Braxton will give a gallery talk in the Hanes Gallery, and on March 16 Anthony Braxton and members of his Tri-Centric Foundation will perform at SECCA.
