They say humanity won’t survive long after the bees go extinct. To stir up some buzz on the topic, artist Wolfgang Buttress has constructed “The Hive,” a 17-meter multi-sensory honeycomb installation. Its soundtrack? Actual bee samples and improvised drone rendered by space rock band Spiritualized, new Icelandic sensations Amiina, Youth, Camille Buttress and Deidre Bencsik. Together, the collective goes by the name Be, and they’re releasing the soundtrack as an album on Rivertones in February. Stream a track here and experience the installation at London’s Kew Gardens in June.
