Last night saw the first live music performances inside the astonishing Hive at Kew Gardens, London.

BE – the musical collective behind the honeybee-inspited soundscape that fills Wolfgang Buttress’ Hive – performed live inside The Hive at Kew Gardens.

Amongst a thousand flickering lights glowing against the night sky, the sound, energy and symphony of tens of thousands of bees and a few musicians created an awe-inspiring atmosphere.

Wolfgang Buttress’s multi-award winning installation, inspired by the plight of the British bee, was the initial inspiration for a musical project, now available on CD: Be One.

Featuring a repertoire of vibrational messages that honeybees use, the composition has four main elements: Begging Signals, Waggle Dance, Tooting and Tooting and Quacking.

I was there for the first performance which wowed the audience. It was an unforgettable and magical evening. I’d recommend a listen to the CD for any beekeeper.
