Glenn Branca Dead at 69

In Manhattan, he formed the no wave band Theoretical Girls with Jeffrey Lohn. Branca released his first solo piece, Lesson No. 1, in 1980. The next year, he issued his debut album, The Ascension. The record features guitar from Lee Ranaldo, who met Thurston Moore through Branca. Glenn Branca later released Sonic Youth's first two albums Sonic Youth and Confusion Is Sex on his Netural Records label.

Branca continued to write symphonies that were performed by the London Sinfonietta, the New York Chamber Sinfonia, and more.

Branca is best known for his 1982 album The Ascension, which highlighted his experimental approach to the guitar: Alternative tunings, a cacophonous assembly of guitars and roaring crescendos. "I consider volume to be one of the compositional elements in my work," Branca once told The Quietus.

Branca, who played a key role in the nascent no wave scene in New York City in the '70s and '80s, was said in the post to have "lived a full life with no regrets" and that there will be no public memorial as per the guitarist's wishes.

Glenn Branca: punk composer who turned minimalism maximal

Branca, who has died aged 69, turned guitars into permanently climaxing choirs of noise - and blew apart the world of minimalist composition

Glenn Branca, mort d'un compositeur explorateur

Inventeur d'une musique symphonique électrique et jusqu'au boutiste, auteur de seize symphonies taillées dans le rock le plus radical, le compositeur américain est décédé lundi, à l'âge de 69 ans.

Als avantgardistischer Komponist und Gitarrist war Glenn Branca ein Grenzgänger zwischen Minimal Music, Noise und Rock.

Er orchestrierte den Lärm

Mit seinen Gitarrenstücken weitete er die Rockmusik aus - und machte Bands wie Sonic Youth erst möglich.

Er galt als "der lauteste Komponist der Welt": Glenn Branca schrieb und dirigierte Sinfonien für 100 E-Gitarren, sein Einfluss auf die Post-Punk-Szene New Yorks war immens.

Musik, die den Zufall umarmte

Was im Gedenken an Glenn Branca bleibt? Ein in die Seele einsickerndes Nachklingeln im Ohr. Denn der Experimentalmusiker entwickelte Gitarrensounds, die krachend laut und menschlich zugleich waren.
