Benjamin Nelson

Benjamin Nelson is a musician and composer.

Benjamin is an American-born musician currently living and working in Oslo. Classically trained as a cellist, Nelson’s focus quickly shifted to electronic music, which he studied along with composition and theory at Northeastern University in Boston. Built from slow moving sheets of sound exploring microshifts in spectrum, phase, hearing fatigue and room resonance Nelson’s music is focused on integrating electronics, acoustic sound, and environment. These pieces were increasingly inspired by imaginary physical objects and recent work has sought to take these focuses further evolving from slow moving compositions to completely static installation/performances meant to reflect hypothetical objects, spaces, and the ambient changes in their surroundings (light, temperature, angle, etc).

Nelson has toured throughout the US and Europe as both a solo performer and a member of various bands and ensembles. Past collaborators have included Verdensteatret, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Brendan Murray, Eli Keszler, Katarina Miljkovic, Reuben Son, Patrick Emm, and others. He has also been an active member of the Non-Event concert series, having served as co-curator and assistant director.
