Benjamin O’Brien

Benjamin O’Brien composes and performs both acoustic and electro-acoustic music. Specifically, he is interested in composing works which are finite with respect to the sound sources and transformation procedures, but indeterminate in their performance of such operations. Benjamin studied composition and improvisation with Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Frith, John D’Earth, Michael Rosensky, and Ted Coffey. Benjamin’s compositions have been performed in the US, France, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, and New Zealand.
