Emily Bennett

I have a voice and ideas
Sometimes I add processing.
Sometimes I add found or electronic sounds
Sometimes I play on my own, sometimes with friends
Sometimes the music is recorded, sometimes not.

I play what I hear
I play what I want to hear
I play what I’m not hearing elsewhere
I play because I’m curious.


I am an improvising and experimental vocalist that works with synthesized and site-specific sounds.  I have collaborated with choreographerstheatre makers, journalists, young people and more recently, constructed works for live music performance that fuse sound design and composed work with future directions in real-time improvisation.  I am led by narratives not predominantly voiced in the music scene; those both banal and significant, portraying landscapes that often bleed into the fictional and subjective.
