May 14, 2015Though this is some of Braxton's most abstract music, it might be the purest expression of his cerebral playfulness yet.
MojoJun 10, 2015Tracks that will keep you waiting forever for the drop still have a corporeal appeal. [Jul 2015, p.94]
May 7, 2015A work of striking, defiant abstraction that cements Braxton’s position as one of the most interesting composers of modern times, and one that’s more than worth careering off the road to.
May 29, 2015The joy is in the ambiguity and Braxton's exemplary manipulation of sound and space.
May 12, 2015Overall, it's clear that HIVE1 doesn't manage to engage all of its composer's talents, despite its occasionally locked-in blend of notated percussion parts and sharp electro-production.
Under The RadarMay 7, 2015Overall, While HIVE1 may not satisfy those hungry for melody and immediacy, it provides a rich and rewarding experience for those patient enough to listen attentively. [Apr-May 2015, p.80]
May 8, 2015There's nothing wrong with making demands of the listener, but there's little to no reward to be found across these eight increasingly alienating compositions.
