Sonic Transmissions Festival
In support of Jaimie Branch’s Fly or Die performance at the Sonic Transmissions Festival on June 14th in Austin, Texas.
In Branch’s own words, Fly or Die is “a dynamic 35-minute ride that dares listeners to open their minds to music that knows no genre, no gender and no limits.”
Tri-Centric Foundation for Braxton75
$25,000 Three-Year Renewable Grant
In support of the “Braxton75” project — a new three-year initiative building up to Anthony Braxton’s 75th birthday celebration in June 2020. Braxton75 fuses three of Tri-Centric’s key goals: supporting live performance of Braxton’s work, publishing and distributing the compositions, and offering pedagogical services to both the professional and lay music community to nurture the next generation(s) of artists and audiences fluent in these creative practices.
