Ingram Marshall Fog Tropes II *
Tyondai Braxton performs Central Market with the London Sinfonietta.
Braxton is the former guitarist, keyboardist and singer of Battles, whose debut album Mirrored was universally hailed as one of the records of the year in 2007, with Pitchfork declaring it 'a breathtaking aesthetic left-turn that sounds less like rock circa 2007 than rock circa 2097, a world where Marshall stacks and micro-processing go hand in hand.'
Central Market, released on Warp, saw Braxton return to solo work, recording the album with New York ensemble the Wordless Music Orchestra. As with Mirrored, it was heralded by the music press cementing Braxton's place as one of New York's most exciting artists.
The first half of the concert sees work by avant-garde US composer Ingram Marshall, one of Japan's greatest 20th century composers Toru Takemitsu, pioneer of electronic composition Edgard Varèse and The National's Bryce Dessner.
Presented by the London Sinfonietta and Southbank Centre
