Anthony Braxton, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and a true giant of creative music, in 50 years of career had never played in a duo with a harp; and that's exactly what happened at the AngelicA Festival in 2018. Expressing himself through a wide range of mediums, from solos to large orchestras to multimedia projects, and drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences, from John Coltrane to Karlheinz Stockhausen, Anthony Braxton has created a unique music system which celebrates the concept of global creativity and shared humanity. Harpist Jacqueline Kerrod, of South-African origins, has performed as part of prestigious classic-contemporary line-ups such as Modern Ensemble and Talea Ensemble. Since 2016 she took part in various Braxton projects such as the opera Trillium J, the 12+1 ensemble, and the ZIM Music sextet, proving to be the ideal partner for this venture where different worlds meet. The music played by Braxton and Kerrod sounds luminous as pure poetry. Music that evokes sublime worlds.
