“Inspired by a wide array of music and art from an early age, I always wanted to combine and restructure the way I listened and understood music and put its nature and elements into different contexts. This initially began with lots of recording experiments and early compositions throughout my youth and substantiated in 2005 when I moved to Berlin and set up HECQ Audio as a project studio, for custom sound design and composition, creating scores for commercials, feature films and working on personal projects.” – Ben Lukas Boysen

Full event details and tickets can be found here.

Arvo Pärt – Tabula Rasa / ECM, 1984

There’s so much that can be said and learned from this album (or Arvo Pärt in general obviously) but especially the two versions of fratres and the cantus in memory of benjamin britten makes this a neverending educational recording.

Thomas Köner – Teimo / Barooni, 1991

I’m very sentimental about this album. it’s connected with a lot of important memories and aside from that is just an amazing ambient manifest.

Lusine ICL – Iron City / Hymen, 2002

Perfectly crafted, beautiful sounding and inspiring every day still! One of my all time favorites every and very important, not only in the electronic realm.

Portishead – Portishead / Go Beat, 1997

Not sure what to say about this album that has not already been said. This was and is live changing.

Pauline Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, Panaiotis – Deep Listening / New Albion, 1989

Another live changing album to me. It got embossed in my brain when first heard it and many times i just hear it’s reverbs and intervals popping up in my mind.

Essential for sure!
