ABOUT

Ben Adamson is a multimedia and sound artist focussing on the composition of soundscapes using the musical capabilities of unconventional and non-musical objects and environments, with the intention to develop a relationship between performance, installation and soundscape design.            

One of his main interests in his installation and sound design work is the nature of participation for audiences as performers and listeners. Provocation is of the utmost importance throughout Ben's work, where beauty often comes from the harshest, most contrasting sounds, with the intention of asking questions to the listener about their understanding of a space, object or theme. Another area of Ben's practice focuses on the intersection of playfulness and communication and involves probing the boundaries between performance, interaction and listening.  Main creative achievements to date are: first residency as the National Parks Authority Artist in Residence at spudWORKS gallery in the New Forest (2023) for which Ben will be creating a sound and touch based installation (May 2-10th 2024); First solo exhibition, Sound and Purpose, as part of the University of Leeds Contemporary Music Festival (2022) (three soundscapes and an interactive installation); and Ben's M.Mus in Critical and Experimental Composition portfolio.
