sample the album:
"For the 2007 edition of FIMAB, producer Michel Levasseur invited Braxton to perform twice: with his 12+1tet as well as with the Diamond Curtain Wall Trio with Taylor Ho Bynum and guitarist Mary Halvorson. The audience had been primed for the large ensemble by the 2005 sextet performance and the recentboxed set of the large ensemble's four-night run at the Iridium in New York. But Diamon Curtain Wall was relatively new. Here was an intimate opportunity to hear Braxton feature his recent foray into the world of laptop and interactive electronics. Braxton and laptop? What would this element bring to his music? Use of electronics is hardly unprecedented in Braxton's music. After all, he played with Richard Teitelbaum starting in the early '70s and featured Bob Ostertag on synthesizer on the late 70's version of his creative orchestra. But for the first time, Braxton was diving in to working with interactive electronics himself!"-Michael Rosenstein, from the liner notes
