Anthony Braxton's 100 Tubas

Live at the World Financial Center, NYC, June, 24, 2006, Anthony Braxton's "100 Tubas" piece- two brief excerpts with the maestro/composer himself conducting. Braxton had 4-5 groups of musicians playing in the outside plaza by the water as each group would move from spot to spot (sometimes trading places) every 5-10 minutes. You can get a taste of the extraordinary booming sound that resulted and maybe even hear some of the ships in the background unintentionally answering them with their own foghorns.
