Live Zones with Ben Seretan
September 2, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Slowly unfurling clouds of tones, swirling drones, and other lovely sounds conjured up right before your eyes – a live set of music you could lie on the floor for by notable US ambient musician Ben Seretan.
Ben Seretan is a musician and writer from Troy, New York who is working hard. In 2018, he released a 24 hour long album of guitar clouds called My Life’s Work. In 2020 came Youth Pastoral, a lightly dance music influenced collection of cathartic full band jammers about breaking up with God (named one of the best albums of the year by Pitchfork). This year – emerging from the Internet as if a 17-year burrow in the woods – Seretan whipped up Cicada Waves, a set of piano recordings from the riotous and cacophonous woods of north Georgia where, more often than not, the piano isn’t played. And every Thursday he sends a new track and a 1,000 word piece of writing via My Big Break, a hard-to-describe email newsletter.
