This is the 4th release in Linear Obsessional's Cassette Imprint.
"This record is a collection of psychoacoustic and experiential aural pieces composed without a teleological result in mind. Together these pieces comprise an archive of my personal experimentations within the frameworks minimalism, relativism and Gestalt theory principles. What I sought to compose was not necessarily limited to a sonic experience; with these works I was seeking to explore expanded forms of hearing, listening and experiencing.
"Music For Listeners" is exactly that- musical experiences for keen, subtle and curious listeners"
The download includes a PDF booklet of notes on the tracks.

Ben Glas (b. 1992) is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in Portland, OR. Through ephemeral compositions Glas' work questions preconceived notions between passive and active participation, collapses the difference between hearing and listening; listening and experiencing. In seeking to explore open ended forms of music and listening perspectives, Glas' compositions focus on subjective perception, via the use of acoustics, psychoacoustics, text-based pieces and site responsivity as tools for sonic composition. Past works and releases include "Music To Interact To" (Blnkstrs/ NY), "Music For An Empty Space and Full Mind" (Sounds Et Al/ NY, PDX), experimental sound installations in various public spaces around the USA and a comprehensive multichannel drone composition debuted at PICA's (Portland Institute of Contemporary Art), as part of the TBA festival.
