Bit Reduction (Craig Renaud)
From recording cave echoes in the mountains of southwest Virginia to hosting underground parties in Brooklyn, Benjamin Green has explored sound, structure, and narrative in computer and electro-acoustic music. His interest in synthesis and composition was nurtured under the instruction of Elliott Schwartz, Bob Moog, and Pauline Oliveros during the mid-1990s. After moving to New York in 1998, Benjamin collaborated with artists such as Multipolyomni, Ben Neill, We ™, and DJ Olive on installations and performances at such venues as The Kitchen and Senspace. It was Ben Neill who introduced him to modular synthesis on a Synton 3000 system in 1999. After that, modular synths such as Serge panels, the Fenix, and Modcan A Series became staples in Benjamin’s toolkit. Benjamin moved to Toronto in late 2008 where he continues to work with local artists (such as Marker Starling), create mixed media works, and record songs with his daughter. In the last few years, he has switched to the Eurorack format, or the Dark Side as he prefers to call it.
