Tyondai Braxton

Warp Records Signs Tyondai Braxton of Battles

Warp Records has signed Tyondai Braxton to a solo deal to release his upcoming yet to be named album. If the name sounds familiar, it's because he's also a member of another Warp band, Battles. He's also a Prefuse 73 co-conspiritor, helping out Scott Herron on his Surrounded by Silence album last year.

Tyondai Braxton is an experimental solo artist that layers sounds by manipulating electronic devices. He often sits down while doing this, and works the sounds up into symphonic resonance. Or in his words: “’Orchestrated loops’ created with voice, guitar, found objects and guitar pedals in real time. The set up is an attempt to create the illusion of movement and density of an ensemble or orchestra as just one person while employing techniques created by DJ's of deconstructing composed music to create new piece.”

Dr. Braxton, I presume? He'll be playing soon in New York at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Pine.
