Tri-Centric Archive Digitization Fundraiser

Source: Tri-Centric Archive Digitization Campaign by Tri-Centric Foundation.

The Tri-Centric Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which supports the work and legacy of American composer and musician Anthony Braxton. Our primary activities are preservation and dissemination of his scores, recordings, and writings, production of performances, and pedagogy.

Tri-Centric is currently working on digitizing Anthony Braxton’s archive which includes roughly 35,000 pieces of print material in the form of 400 scores and parts, as well as numerous writings, cassettes, videos and ephemera. An independent composer, Braxton has held on to these materials himself for his entire life, and his collection is only growing as he continues to compose at a prolific rate. We are on track to finish this work by June 2023.

We are now asking for your help to reach this year’s ambitious fundraising goal. Your contribution will go towards preserving one of the most important archives of a living American composer. You will be helping current and future generations by providing affordable access to Anthony Braxton’s philosophical writings. You will be supporting the future of creative music.
