Ben Vida - "Zizzlers" | Video

Ben Vida (Town & Country, Bird Show) is back with his latest solo album titled Esstends-Esstends-Esstends. The full-length sees Vida present a heady mix compositions for "Computer Controlled Modular Synthesizer and Digital Signal Processing" something that hints towards the forward thinking electronics he employs in tracks such as "Zizzlers" and "Qweek Plus Enner (outro too)." As the press release will tell us the compositions on the album are an attempt to "escape the stereo image" for an expanded auditory listening space.

"Zizzlers", & it's accompanying video A fantastic collaborative spree has emerged between Ben Vida & Hisham Bharoocha that this video seems to only highlight. Collaboratively the whole is a strangely moving testament, contemplative in a way more generally acknowledged in the gallery arts world. Something which makes perfect sense as both contributors seems to bee spending increasing amounts of time in such environments. In the previous year alone Vida was recipient of various prestigious awards & opportunities inside & outside of the fine arts world including Composer in Residency at Diapason Space, NYC and at EMS Studios, Stockholm and was awarded a Swedish Arts Committee Travel Grant, ISSUE Project Room Emerging Artists Commission and Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona "Composing with Process" Exclusive Works Commission.

Ben Vida's Esstends-Esstends-Esstends is available on LP via Pan.
