    "Braxton is notorious for naming his pieces as diagrams, typically labeled with cryptic numbers and letters. Sometimes these diagrams have an obvious relation to the music — for instance, on the album For Trio the diagram-title indicates the physical positions of the performers, but in many cases the diagram-titles remain inscrutable. The titles can themselves be musical notation indicating to the performer how a piece is played. Sometimes the letters are identifiable as the initials of Braxton's friends and musical colleagues."

    If you don't understand then maybe you should go to the source (the guy) and educate yourself - 'the guy has written a lot of stuff.'

    I don't get how this guy names his compositions. The number is one thing, but the letter?
