HIVE is multimedia project; part installation and part ensemble, utilizing modular synthesis, sound design and acoustic instruments in live performance. This introduces a new element to my work: a visual narrative counterpart and the creation of environments.
I enlisted the help of Danish architect & carpenter Uffe Surland Van Tams to design and fabricate five massive, custom built wooden platforms. Myself and Ben Vida (PAN records) and 3 percussionists, Yuri Yamashita, Chris Thompson and Matt Smallcomb, will each be perched a top their own individual HIVE pod. Premiered at the Guggenheim Museum in spring 2013, the European premiere will take place September 16th 2013 in Krakow, Poland at the Sacrum Profanum Festival.
