OUTSIDE Benjamin Bennett: TALKING

My work originated in improvised music, and has followed a path of dematerialisation, or doing more with less, and and is always trying to jettison cultural baggage in favor of content that brings awareness more directly to the present experience. My material has moved from non­idiomatic sound into speech and internet media. I have performed throughout North America, Europe, and Japan, in various venues, festivals, and universities. I have given workshops and lectures on improvisation and the physics of sound. My web­stream series "Sitting and Smiling" went viral in 2015 and received mass media coverage, was live­streamed at MOCA Australia, and has received nearly 1.5 million views. I currently reside in Philadelphia, where I continue my performance practice, both on the internet and in person.
