All proceeds will go to benefit the Tri-Centric Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating and realizing the most ambitious projects in the ongoing work and legacy of composer Anthony Braxton, and to cultivating and inspiring the next generation of creative artists to pursue their own visions with the kind of idealism and integrity that Braxton has demonstrated thoughout his five decade career.
