The Tri-Centric Foundation and Firehouse 12 Records will release three box sets by composer Anthony Braxton on April 1. According to a press release, they range “from a wild reinvention of post-Wagnerian opera—Trillium J (The Non-Unconfessionables)—to a heartfelt tribute to an improvisatory hero—Quintet (Tristano) 2014—to a multi-dimensional, fully immersive electro-acoustic sound environment—3 Compositions (EEMHM) 2011.” Each of the three projects, the release continues, “offers a different component of Braxton’s constantly evolving vision, and each challenges the listener (or friendly experiencer, in Braxton terminology) to experience music as an active participant rather than a passive spectator.”
