    Summary

    New Braxton House -- the label of composer/multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton's Tri-Centric Foundation -- will issue the first-ever studio recording of a Braxton opera, Trillium E. The deluxe four-disc box set documents this surreal and witty installment in Braxton's ongoing Trillium cycle, and includes a 72-page booklet with libretto, photos, and critical essays. Each of Trillium E's four acts features a different episode: a genie in a bottle, the invention of human cloning, interplanetary space travel, and the exploration of a jungle pyramid. Using these familiar tropes, located at the intersection of myth and pop culture, Braxton creates what Nate Chinen of the New York Times describes as "a confounding, often tensely dramatic experience, with the singers embroiled in domestic argument or birdsong chatter or, in Act III, what sounds like a pastiche of Star Trek."

    The performers on Trillium E have been heard with major opera companies (New York City Opera, Florentine Opera, Lyric Opera of San Diego); top avant-garde performance groups (Philip Glass Ensemble, Wooster Group, Darmstadt Institute); grassroots arts collectives (HERE Theater, Anti-Social Music); and collaborations with legendary jazz and improvised music figures. In addition to the Tri-Centric Foundation website, Trillium E will be available at a host of online and brick-and-mortar retail outlets, distributed through Firehouse 12 Records.
