Anthony Braxton Accelerator Ghost Trance Septet - San Sebastian, July 2008 - DVD & audio




Back in May this blog carried a performance of Composition no. 356, from the January 2008 Chiasso festival, and here is a companion piece, Composition no. 348, from the San Sebastian jazz festival in July.

Not surprisingly there are many similarities; the music seems to follow a diurnal cycle - the dawn is signalled by AB just before the end - and a large part of the music occupies itself with night and the time just before dawn. Animal calls and the noises and movements of the night become transformed by imagination into something altogether different.

This is a DVD, in ten hefty files, which were originally torrented by cosmikd, to whom I am very grateful for making this available in such high quality. An mp3 audio file is also available, prepared from the audio file torrented by the wonderful boldsouls. The music is superb, and it is great to see the interaction between the musicians, particularly as they move from the quiet of night into the crescendo of dawn.

Hi Kike - the video files are in .vob format. I don't know what that means, but they play through my Mac DVD player.
