Benjamin Tassie: Audio-Visual Set

Benjamin Tassie, MOCA London

On September 29th, composer Benjamin Tassie will present a live audio-visual set at MOCA London in Peckham as part of the gallery’s Autumn performance-art series. Featuring visuals by digital artist, Ted Sterchi, Benjamin’s performance will showcase new music alongside work from his 2018 album, bop.

Sitting across experimental pop and art-music scenes, Benjamin’s music incorporates sonic elements from computer games, orchestral music, and analogue synthesisers to create radical new sound-worlds. For his live show at MOCA London, Benjamin is breaking new ground, creating work for live electronic instruments and immersive visuals. Performing was multi-instrumentalist, Benjamin’s set will feature digital sampling, processed vocals, keyboards, synthesisers and drum-pads, to make music that is as energetic and joyful as it is mellifluous and deeply layered.

Benjamin’s music has been performed at venues including Tate Modern, Shoreditch Church, Moth Club, Wilderness Festival, on BBC Radio 3, Resonance FM, and elsewhere. He was shortlisted for the 2018 Arts Foundation Award and has been commissioned by, among others, the PRS Foundation, Bliss Trust, and Help Musicians U.K. He has written music for choir, performed in a disused factory (London Festival of Architecture 2017), arranged Björk and Radiohead for baroque orchestra (Kensington Palace and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment), and has DJ’d at venues including the V&A, Dulwich Picture Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts.

Benjamin will showcase new music with immersive visuals by digital artist, Ted Sterchi.
