about

In 1969, Anthony Braxton went in to record an album like none before - an album that has made the top 10 avant-garde albums list. It was an album of uncharted territory, for aside from being released as a double LP, it was the first ever improvisational album for solo saxophone. Over 40 years later, a violist heavily influenced by Braxton's work approaches a new album in a similar way - but this time, the alto doesn't refer to a reed instrument, but a bowed one.
