Tyondai Braxton/Jefre Cantu-Ledesma/Ben Vida
Composer Tyondai Braxton can’t be pinned down into any one musical genre. Co-founder of the exalted math rock band Battles, he burst onto the written music scene with his psychedelic 2009 orchestra work Central Market. Braxton’s music a wild blur, in which all genres of music overlap and coexist.
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is a multi-instrumentalist, member of several bands, and co-founder of the Root Strata record label. His music ranges from warm and atmospheric to dark, caustic noise.
Ben Vida is a composer and artist. In the mid-1990s Vida co-founded the minimalist quartet Town & Country and released solo records under the moniker Bird Show.
Expect lush, dense and varied soundscapes when the three artists join forces on the Long Play stage.
