Ben Bennett (OH)
Ben Bennett began musical training as a young child, studied jazz percussion, and soon began playing free improvisation exclusively. He has developed a highly personal and intensely physical approach to percussion, which involved gradually distilling the drum set down to a single vibrating membrane, and developing breath, friction, and other techniques to produce a wide array of sounds from minimal materials. His application of timing, repetition, and compositional form can reveal a surprising musicality in the most unlikely gestures.

He has toured North America, Europe, and Japan, performing solo and in collaboration. Groups include Wrest with Jack Wright and Evan Lipson, Central Ohio War Coalition with Joe Panzner and Mike Shiflet, and with Wilson Shook and Ryan Jewell. He has collaborated with many others, including Steve Baczkowski, Pascal Battus, Jack Callahan, Ben Hall, Michael Johnsen, Fred Lonberg­Holm, Ilan Manouach, Bob Marsh, Andrea Pensado, and Aaron Zarzutzki. He has released albums on Experimedia, Public Eyesore, Bug Incision, and Edgetone.
