    Tyondai Braxton performs HIVE, the work that inspired his Nonesuch Records debut album, HIVE1, for a three-night residency at The Kitchen in NYC this Thursday through Saturday, June 4–6. The New Yorker calls the album "a beguiling, introspective new record," noting that the tracks, "which are transfixing, are marked by fragmented percussion grooves that weave in and out of warm analogue soundscapes." HIVE debuted at the Guggenheim Museum in NYC in 2013, created as a live multimedia work that was part architectural installation, part ensemble performance with five musicians seated atop their own oval pods designed by Danish architect Uffe Surland Van Tams.
