Anthony Braxton, wearing a white shirt, stands in front of a river with trees and a building in the background.

In Anthony Braxton’s experimental works, performers use written scores, improvisation, and conducting to create complex musical collages which grow and develop in real time. To celebrate the composer’s 75th birthday, the adventurous International Contemporary Ensemble presents Braxton’s Language Music and Ghost Trance Music. The former has become Braxton’s signature system of conducted improvisation; the latter represents a body of open works that challenges traditional roles of composer, score, and performer.
