Ben Osborn w/ Ravetank + Follow The Sun

Friday 10th June 2022

TICKETS £6 on the door ♦ doors 7.30pm

Berlin-based British songwriter and composer Ben Osborn has brought together two of his long-term collaborators, Bethany Roberts(Bristol) and Malo (Leipzig), to form a unique trio of built of three distinctive compositional and musical voices. Oscillating between folk-inspired poetic song writing, minimal groove-filled electronica and experiments in multi-layered, textured ambience, the trio morphs from collaborative creations to reinterpreted songs and pieces from each individual artist.

The trio plays a selection of chosen venues around Europe in 2022.

Coming from a poetic folk song tradition, Ben Osborn’s work draws also from electronica and classical music to create a space in which highly personal and deeply political stories can be told. Ethereal string sections rise and fade, complex electronic beats skitter, dreamlike piano chords drift into view: in less capable hands it might sound miscellaneous, but he weaves his disparate influences into textural tapestries that sound like nobody but him. 

Ben co-founded and co-runs Berlin’s Open Music Lab, a free music production school for people from marginalised backgrounds.
