About Ben Gerstein

Hello, blessings, and welcomes! This is a new platform for me to release further exploriments on video, music, improvisation, nature... extended versions of YouTube posts, more personal site-specific footage of practice, audiography, field recordings, compositional experiments, rare albums and tracks, writings, readings, exciting resources and discoveries... Also as another medium through which I can be available to continue teaching independently and remotely in one-on-one or group connection.







We develop our creative languages and delight in the
exciting new discoveries the musics of life bring us.
It is all for the taking and making—it all informs the expression of our lives.
There is no longer "abstract".

We live an art of appreciation through the energy of being musicians,
carrying the lessons all vehicles have shown us.
How things move, speak, and time.
The lives and lands that teach us and come up in our evolution.
And we give back for all that we've been given.
Why do we practice?
What needs to come out?
Our language is a free response to what we're responding to
to what is influencing us, guiding us melodically through life.
We are artists working with "found events",
who use and sing the experience through our bodies.
A signature of it somehow.
And so we each are a language unique.
What speaks through us, finds us, shows us, dreams us.
