No Longer Showing.
During this three-night residency, former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton brings his HIVE show back to New York for the first time since it's 2013 Guggenheim premiere. Part ensemble and part installation, HIVE features five musicians sitting atop five space-age oval pods designed by Danish architect Uffe Surland Van Tam and accompanied by Sarah Frankel's lighting design.
The residency celebrates the release of the composer's Nonesuch debut HIVE1 - his first release in six years and his first album since departing his former band. HIVE was originally commissioned by Works and Process at the Guggenheim.
