Titled Symphony No. 1 (Tonal Plexus), Branca’s first actual symphony and his first work in two years is just as and mostly even more impressive than The Ascension, and features all of Branca’s usual hallmarks: heavily abrasive guitars, repetitive structures that can get to the point of being overwhelming, and spine-tingling build-ups that are far more monstrous and. jaw-dropping than anything modern post-rock has ever given us. Everything on this first symphony seems to be on a greater and more grand scale than The Ascension, including longer, more developed songs (every song on here extends . . 1 (Tonal Plexus) by Glenn Branca, released 29 July 1998 1.

Branca's first symphony is a massive behemoth of guitars, noise and alternate tunings with players that include the Theoretical Girls' Wharton Tiers and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo. The first movement begins with a distant groan, like some Aboriginal folk music. By the time the thundering drums begin, the sound has become as grand and immovable is the monolith from 2001. Branca's brilliance lies in his merger of rock and roll with 20th century classical, as well as his ability to create rumbling, careening crescendos into infinity.
