Shocking news this afternoon…Glenn Branca’s microtonal guitar symphonies were a big influence on me when I finally got my own microtonal gtr. Take care Glenn…the world is a better place because you were here and made music. ☹️

I never heard the microtonal symphonies performed, but when Bang on a Can premiered Music for Airports, they played a Branca piece.

I heard a pair of 12tet symphonies at the Kitchen and had to leave because it was so loud. It was later released on DVD.

I also heard another 12tet symphony at the Brooklyn Anchorage. So loud, crap was falling from the ceiling.

Brooklyn Anchorage: that was the time I correctly IDed Keenan Lawler strolling around. Kind of strange, considering I never met Keenan and didn’t know what he looked like. The psychic powers of heavy drinking, strange side effect.

There was another time at the Leonard Knitting Factory. He was doing something with Zev, smoking on stage in a non smoking room.

I remember reading about him and bought a copy of Gloria, Symphony no.3 when it came out.
