Braxton's Composition 361 is a staggeringly detailed 70 minute tour-de-force for his 12-tet, a work of shifting layers, counter-structures, quiet tensions and scorching explosions.

Braxton, Anthony
12+1tet (Victoriaville) 2007

Braxton, Anthony : 12+1tet (Victoriaville) 2007 (Victo)
Label: Victo    
Released in: Canada    

"This concert offers a striking opportunity to hear the ensemble in full force. The 70-minute piece builds an inner logic of staggering detail, while never loosing the propulsive flow. The shifting layers and counter-structures mount with scorching intensity and then break into pools of quiet tension only to explode off again. The momentum can march along with a galvanizing pulse, fracture into freedom, or cascade with a roiling sense of swing. Braxton has stated that the music played by this ensemble is the culmination of the Ghost Trance series. But as is always the case with Braxton, the consummation of one phase simply serves as the launching point for what is to come. And for both those who have been following his career for decades and initiates alike, the search is sure to bring new rewards."-Michael Rosenstein
