Ben Byrne is an academic, musician, artist, organiser and writer interested in sonic art, media and culture. He is currently teaching in Media & Communication at RMIT University. He recently completed a PhD, producing a thesis, Murmur, that argues sound is a multiplicity. He has performed extensively in Australia and overseas, alone and with others. His solo performances and records, including his recent cassette release Breach, ask listeners to find their own path as music emerges from and disappears into a mess of signals, actions and noise. He makes installations, the latest of which, Tumult, was presented at Firstdraft Gallery. He runs Avantwhatever, a contemporary experimental music label.
