A #1 New Release in Jazz Music on Amazon!
'Absolutely essential reading.' — The Wire

One of modern music's towering figures, composer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton has redefined critical concepts of jazz and the wider world of creative music. The Chicago native's works range from an early piece for 100 tubas to proposed compositions for orchestras on different planets. A modern classic, Forces in Motion follows Braxton's lauded quartet on a 1985 tour of England, noting his opinions of his musical predecessors — including Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Karlheinz Stockhausen — as well as his thoughts on racism and poverty.
For this new 30th anniversary edition, Graham Lock provides a new chapter, detailing later encounters with Braxton and the quartet; Anthony Braxton has penned a new Afterword as well. In addition to inside views of the mind of a musical visionary, this book offers an entertaining chronicle of a touring band. Braxton's subjects run the gamut from chess and hamburgers to astrology, feminism, and ancient Egypt. Above all, it offers a captivating view of the frustrations and rewards that result from an artist's dedication of his life to creative music.
'This book should be required reading for anyone interested in my music,' Anthony Braxton has observed. 'Graham Lock writes from the perceptual plane of insight and dedication — coupled with a keen wit and a dynamic intellect. This is serious writing and thinking. I could not have been more fortunate.'

Reprint of the Da Capo Press, New York, 1988 edition, with new material added for the Dover edition.

Reseña del editor:

"This book should be required reading for anyone interested in my music," declared composer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton. One of jazz's most important figures, Braxton transcends the usual critical boundaries with works ranging from a piece for 100 tubas to compositions for interplanetary orchestras. Based on interviews from a 1985 tour, this is a fascinating profile of a musical visionary and his ethical, political, and spiritual beliefs. "Absolutely essential reading." - The Wire.

"Graham Lock writes from the perceptual plane of insight and dedication -- coupled with a keen wit and a dynamic intellect. This is serious writing and thinking. I could not have been more fortunate." "Remarkable. One of the most thorough and honest accounts you'll find of what it means to make truly uncompromising art in America. It's also, thanks to Lock's conversational, unpretentious style and Braxton's penchant for witty self-deprecation, a thoroughly approachable and at times even laugh-out-loud funny invitation into the aesthetic world of a man whose work can be as exhilarating as it is rigorous." -- Rolling Stone "It's rare to get such an insight into band dynamics, musicians or the nature of sound and music itself, and Lock's book remains an outstanding work in the field of jazz, music, composition, sound and psychology. It may focus on Anthony Braxton, but Forces in Motion spirals out into a much wider and engaging world." -- International Times. Nº de ref. del artículo: AA99780486824093
