Ingrid Laubrock is a German Brooklyn-based saxophonist/composer interested in exploring the borders between musical realms and creating multi-layered, dense, and often evocative sound worlds. She leads Anti-House, Ubatuba, and Serpentines. She has been part of several Anthony Braxton projects, including Falling River Quartet, Diamond Curtain Wall Quartet, and was one of the soloists in his latest opera Trillium J. Her awards include a fellowship in Jazz Composition by the Arts Foundation (2006), the SWR German Radio Jazz Prize (2009), and the German Record Critics Quarterly Award (2014). In 2015 she won Best Soprano Saxophonist in the Downbeat Annual Critics Poll.
