Since 2011, Ben has released four solo recordings, a collaborative LP with Portland band the Early, and a live recording with the Ben Seretan Group on WFMU. He's also played lots and lots of shows. Ben grew up in Southern California, in Orange County. When he was a kid, he went to church and played the cello.
Then he went out to school, at Wesleyan University, studying with such weirdo music luminaries as Alvin Lucier and Anthony Braxton. After briefly living in rural Missouri, Ben moved to Brooklyn. He's lived there since. In 2012, Ben was an artist in residence at the Wassaic Project. In 2013, Ben was named one of the Sitka Fellows. He lived and worked in southeast Alaska for most of that summer - the result is the album/film/cassette tape Double Alaska, currently available from Standard Issue Press.
