Tyondai Braxton, Canyons & Daniel Boyd | USA/Australia

Two very special sight and sound works take you on an incandescent sensory journey at the Sydney Opera House.

Former Battles frontman and solo artist Tyondai Braxton is the force behind HIVE, a live multimedia performance that is part installation, part band. Using modular synthesisers, sound design and percussion, Braxton performs new compositions alongside four musicians, all set atop architecturally designed and custom built illuminated platforms.

For 100 Million Nights, electronic duo Canyons collaborate with visual artist Daniel Boyd, whose work reinterprets Aboriginal and Australian-European history. The musicians' original score is an emotive response to Boyd's artwork. This audio-visual experience sees Canyons perform live as a four-piece while Boyd's three-panel video installation forms the mesmerising setting.
