Specially curated for TMS, this music programme will explore the multiple ways in which benjin's instrumental compositions, song poems, and dense sound collage improvisations have been informed (and quite literally formed) through a lifetime of working on water and the sea. Drawing upon pieces written for cello, classical guitar, nyckelharpa and voice, he will highlight the importance of the sea to his minimalist compositional techniques and as a narrative device. Moreover, through explications of select field recordings, benjin will critically explore a broader relationship between sound art and water and also outline debates around the importance of immersed 'authentic' perspectives within folk music traditions.


benjin is a multi instrumentalist, artist and story teller who has toured and recorded with a number of experimental ensembles over the last 15 years. His solo compositions use classical guitar, cello, harp, clarinet, vocals, nyckelharpa, field recordings and found sounds. Aside from regular concert performances, benjin's music has been featured on BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio 3 and at the TATE Galleries.
