Tyondai Braxton is an American composer and performer mainly known as lead singer/guitarist from rock group The Battles. Born and raised in Connecticut and Northern California and son of avant-garde composer Anthony Braxton. Having studied composition at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford, his complex compositions present a unique version of sound. His “orchestrated loops” involve real-time overlaying of guitar, voice and found objects, designed to simulate an ensemble. You can catch him at Sonar 2011 in Barcelona.
