In February 2015, Hydra participated in an impromptu collaboration with Dan Branigan. We sat in darkness at the foot of The Hive's home-y stage on Cooke Street, as Dan’s electronic bass + brass sound installation wrapped around us with a kind of electric, trance-y, careful quietude, and we wrapped back around them with quiet, intent, thick, dark vocal harmony. It was a tiny show - four or five in the audience - and was perfectly delicate perfectly delicate. We have plans for furthering this collaboration. I will keep you updated.
