Ben Vince is a prolific saxophonist and composer who radically redefines the possibilities of the saxophone through extended technique, electronic processing and an open-eared approach to collaboration. Following a recent collaboration with Joy O on Hessle Audio, and releases on Blank Editions, CURL, and Depth of Decay, Ben’s latest LP Assimilation (Where To Now?) sees him broaden his horizons further with guest spots from the likes of Micachu, Rupert Clervaux, Valentina Magaletti and Merlin Nova.’
