Ari Benjamin Meyers
Ari Benjamin Meyers, born 1972 in New York, currently lives and works in Berlin. Trained as a composer and conductor, his work has been increasingly presented in an art context since 2007. In his recent projects and compositions, for example The Lightning and its Flash (solo for conductor) (2011) and Symphony X (installation version) (2012), the artist has explored structures that redefine the performative and immaterial nature of music. The range of his activities is evidenced by his numerous collaborations. His latest major composition, the 70-minute-long Symphony X13.B (2012-2013) for large symphony orchestra, will be premiered by the Brandenburg Symphony Orchestra in 2014.
