The former Battles frontman, sonic adventurer and contemporary classical composer Tyondai Braxton has been confirmed to play a solo electronica show at Deaf Institute in March. The scale of his productions has been harnessed by world renowned orchestras, from the BBC Symphony to LA Philharmonic, so the Manchester venue will be an opportunity to witness his deftness of musical dexterity in intimate surrounds, as he performs material from 2016’s Oranged Out EP and 2015’s HIVE1 album. Also on the bill are Dawn of Midi, who supported Nils Frahm in 2014 and similarly offer compositions resonant of electronica’s subtleties, but realised via acoustic instrumentation. A must for fans of Philip Glass, with whom Braxton has also worked.

Sun 26 Mar, Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7HE, Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7.30pm, £12.50,
