Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Lorraine is the name of a new music prototype. This is a music system that governs the 'sonic winds' of breath. There is a stillness in the air and the ghosts of the past commands the space. Memories and shadows of 'beingness' adorn the ornamentation of old ruins and blessed relics. Sound castles in the sky - long forgotten experiences have returned with love and humility. Lorraine has come home to birth a renewal and awareness of the other. Lorraine the traveller" - Anthony Braxton

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton is recognised as one of the seminal figures of the music of the second half of the 20th century and of the beginning of the 21st. Expressing himself through an enormous variety of mediums (from his pioneering solo performances of the late 1960s, to quartets, to large orchestras, to more recent works, such as the multimedia cycle of operas Trillium and the gigantic environmental performances of the Sonic Genome Project), Braxton has opened with his work new conceptual and technical paths in the trans-African and trans-European musical traditions, finding a highly original synthesis between jazz-based improvisation and the complexity of classical-contemporary music.

AngelicA Festival previously hosted Braxton in 2006 with Richard Teitelbaum, in 2007 with Cecil Taylor's Historical Quartet, and in 2018 for the premiere of his duo project with the harpist Jacqueline Kerrod - documented by the cd album Duo (Bologna) 2018 (IDA 039); and this new 4-CD box release (IDA 056) represents a further degree of exceptionality by documenting the entire 2022 European tour (Vilnius, Bologna, Antwerp, Rome) with which Braxton launched his new project for four saxophones.

An almost unprecedented lineup for the composer, as among the over 300 recordings under his name featuring the most diverse formations, there seems to be no works for four saxophones, except for one piece (Composition n. 37 with Julius Hemphill, Oliver Lake and Hamiet Bluiett) on the album New York Fall, 1974, and Composition n. 169 (+186+206+214) from the year 2000, in which a sax quartet interacted with a symphonic orchestra.The distinctive feature of this new project is the addition of electronics: an interactive system in real-time, uniquely developed by Braxton using the SuperCollider platform, which acts almost as a fifth improvising member of the ensemble.

Lorraine is the name Braxton coined for the compositional system that governs the first stages of this project still in progress: as he explains in the video-interview available online and on AngelicA website, it is a "new system of poetics", a "mutable and fantasy space" which represents for the composer "the Aether level" (wind, breath, clouds), as opposed to the "ground" level he explored up to this point with his "Tri-Centric Thought Unit Construct", on which he based much of his music production from the 1980s onwards.Accompanying him in this new phase, we once again find musicians who have been part of his conceptual "music systems" in recent years (Ghost Trance Music, Trillium, Falling River Music, Sonic Genome), in the role of both instrumentalists and/or orchestra conductors: James Fei, Chris Jonas, and Ingrid Laubrock (replaced by André Vida for the Vilnius date only).

In his essay included in the attached 40-pages booklet, musicologist Mario Gamba provides an in-depth comparative analysis of the four lengthy compositions (N. 436, 437, 438, 439 - each one 48-50 minutes long) that make up Sax Qt (Lorraine) 2022, describing them as "four endless journeys" which, crossing a wide variety of instrumental and stylistic approaches ("echoes of bop, extreme free, of delicate bends of Monteverdian nature, of 'cultured' historic neo-avant-garde, finally of new music as it is understood today, that is microtonality/multimedia/lyrism"), trace an 'historic' trail between the author's past and present, as well as offering a glimpse on his "music 'to come', which is indeed already here, in the most fervid of todays".

Artist Biographies

[Anthony Braxton (born June 4, 1945) is an American composer and instrumentalist.]

"Genius is a rare commodity in any art form, but at the end of the 20th century it seemed all but non-existent in jazz, a music that had ceased looking ahead and begun swallowing its tail. If it seemed like the music had run out of ideas, it might be because Anthony Braxton covered just about every conceivable area of creativity during the course of his extraordinary career. The multi-reedist/composer might very well be jazz's last bona fide genius. Braxton began with jazz's essential rhythmic and textural elements, combining them with all manner of experimental compositional techniques, from graphic and non-specific notation to serialism and multimedia. Even at the peak of his renown in the mid- to late '70s, Braxton was a controversial figure amongst musicians and critics. His self-invented (yet heavily theoretical) approach to playing and composing jazz seemed to have as much in common with late 20th century classical music as it did jazz, and therefore alienated those who considered jazz at a full remove from European idioms. Although Braxton exhibited a genuine -- if highly idiosyncratic -- ability to play older forms (influenced especially by saxophonists Warne Marsh, John Coltrane, Paul Desmond, and Eric Dolphy), he was never really accepted by the jazz establishment, due to his manifest infatuation with the practices of such non-jazz artists as John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Many of the mainstream's most popular musicians (Wynton Marsalis among them) insisted that Braxton's music was not jazz at all. Whatever one calls it, however, there is no questioning the originality of his vision; Anthony Braxton created music of enormous sophistication and passion that was unlike anything else that had come before it. Braxton was able to fuse jazz's visceral components with contemporary classical music's formal and harmonic methods in an utterly unselfconscious -- and therefore convincing -- way. The best of his work is on a level with any art music of the late 20th century, jazz or classical.

Braxton began playing music as a teenager in Chicago, developing an early interest in both jazz and classical musics. He attended the Chicago School of Music from 1959-1963, then Roosevelt University, where he studied philosophy and composition. During this time, he became acquainted with many of his future collaborators, including saxophonists Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell. Braxton entered the service and played saxophone in an Army band; for a time he was stationed in Korea. Upon his discharge in 1966, he returned to Chicago where he joined the nascent Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). The next year, he formed an influential free jazz trio, the Creative Construction Company, with violinist Leroy Jenkins and trumpeter Leo Smith. In 1968, he recorded For Alto, the first-ever recording for solo saxophone. Braxton lived in Paris for a short while beginning in 1969, where he played with a rhythm section comprised of bassist Dave Holland, pianist Chick Corea, and drummer Barry Altschul. Called Circle, the group stayed together for about a year before disbanding (Holland and Altschul would continue to play in Braxton-led groups for the next several years). Braxton moved to New York in 1970. The '70s saw his star rise (in a manner of speaking); he recorded a number of ambitious albums for the major label Arista and performing in various contexts. Braxton maintained a quartet with Altschul, Holland, and a brass player (either trumpeter Kenny Wheeler or trombonist George Lewis) for most of the '70s. During the decade, he also performed with the Italian free improvisation group Musica Elettronica Viva, and guitarist Derek Bailey, as well as his colleagues in AACM. The '80s saw Braxton lose his major-label deal, yet he continued to record and issue albums on independent labels at a dizzying pace. He recorded a memorable series of duets with bop pioneer Max Roach, and made records of standards with pianists Tete Montoliu and Hank Jones. Braxton's steadiest vehicle in the '80s and '90s -- and what is often considered his best group -- was his quartet with pianist Marilyn Crispell, bassist Mark Dresser, and drummer Gerry Hemingway. In 1985, he began teaching at Mills College in California; he subsequently joined the music faculty at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, where he taught through the '90s. During that decade, he received a large grant from the MacArthur Foundation that allowed him to finance some large-scale projects he'd long envisioned, including an opera. At the beginning of the 21st century, Braxton was still a vital presence on the creative music scene."
