Anthony Braxton Octet
Tri-Centric Project Ensemble perform Anthony Braxton
Anthony Braxton is recognized as one of the most important musicians, educators, and creative thinkers of the past 50 years, highly esteemed in the creative music community for the revolutionary quality of his work and for the mentorship and inspiration he has provided to generations of younger musicians.
Drawing upon a disparate mix of influences from John Coltrane to Karlheinz Stockhausen to Native American music, Braxton has created a unique musical system that celebrates the concept of global creativity and our shared humanity.
His work examines core principles of improvisation, structural navigation and ritual engagement-innovation, spirituality and intellectual investigation.
His many accolades include a 1981 Guggenhiem Fellowship, a 1994 MacArthur Fellowship, a 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award and a 2014 NEA Jazz Master Award.

This event is produced in collaboration with The Tri-Centric Foundation — a not-for-profit organization that supports the ongoing work and legacy of Anthony Braxton, while also cultivating and inspiring the next generation of creative artists to pursue their own visions with the kind of idealism and integrity Braxton has demonstrated throughout his long and distinguished career.
Born in New Zealand in 1939 and living in the US since 1973, Annea Lockwood is known for her explorations of the rich world of natural acoustic sounds and environments, in works ranging from sound art and installations, through text-sound and performance art to concert music.
For this event, Annea Lockwood will be joined in conversation with Crys Cole — sound artist and director of the Send + Receive festival in Winnipeg, Canada. We will also have a chance to listen together to some of Lockwood’s electro-acoustic works.
Lockwood’s installation ‘A Sound Map of the Danube’ — a surround ‘sound map’ of the entire Danube River, incorporating a wide variety of water, animal and underwater insect sounds, rocks from the riverbed and the voices of those whose lives are intimately connected to the river will be installed and available to experience at MDT’s Studio 2 for the duration of the festival — no ticket/pass required. Performances of Lockwood’s concert works ‘Immersion’ and ‘Jitterbug’ will take place at Fylkingen on Saturday 9 February.
