Avant-garde Music & Multimedia in the Pacific Northwest

Ben Glas
Interdisciplinary artist and composer
Ben Glas (b. 1992) is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in Portland, OR. Through ephemeral compositions Glas' work questions preconceived notions between passive and active participation, collapses the difference between hearing and listening; listening and experiencing. In seeking to explore open ended forms of music and listening perspectives, Glas' compositions focus on subjective perception, via the use of acoustics, psychoacoustics, text-based pieces and site specificity as tools for sonic and sensical composing. Past works and releases include "Music To Interact To" (Blnkstrs/ NY), "Music For An Empty Space and Full Mind" (Sounds Et Al/ NY, PDX), experimental sound installations in various public spaces around the USA and a comprehensive multichannel drone composition debuted at PICA's (Portland Institute of Contemporary Art), as part of the TBA festival.
