Linear Obsessional is delighted to release a third album by Ben Glas, an American composer (based in Berlin) which continues his idiosyncratic exploration of experiential sound and psycho acoustic phenomena.

"'Noise For Quantum Listening'"i s a collection of experimentally experiential pieces, composed with the sole purpose of exploring the use of the listener's brain and cognition as interactive instruments. The result of combining gestalt principles with psychoacoustic techniques, NFQL is an open window for inter/active listeners to explore open ended forms of listening, follow their thoughts and or simply mind roll. Via sonic satiation, spatial relativity and superpositioning, NFQL pins the listener's perception to itself, to reveal new listening possibilities.


released May 29, 2021

Ben Glas (b. 1992) is an experiential composer based in Berlin. Through ephemeral compositions Glas' work questions preconceived notions between the acts of passive hearing and active listening. In seeking to discover open ended forms of music and pragmatic listening perspectives, Glas' compositions focus on the realms of subjective perception and cognition, via the use of acoustics, psychoacoustics and space as tools for sonic composition. His work has been exhibited and performed internationally, including the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA), Glasgow's Radiophrenia festival, the Soundwave Biennial (SF) and the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA). He is currently receiving his M.A. in Sonic Studies at the UdK.
