leshy
Ben Krasner is an interdisciplinary sound artist, instrument builder, and pianist. Their work is playful, guided by a childlike curiosity and a desire to stretch the senses. Their material practice involves hand-building Ceramic Percussion Objects, incorporating found objects, and folding them into their electroacoustic process: open source electronics, field recording, synthesis, and various time-based systems. Composing under the name ‘leshy’, they explore echolocation, diffused temporality, feedback, queerness, ripples, rocks, and texture. They aim to develop a language that allows them to integrate the shapes and patterns that are replicated in nature, circuits, and psyche.
