Ben Brown is a sound practitioner, visual artist, and bodyworker. He seeks the intersection of mediums that provide a haven from social-emotional isolation and support our adaptive capabilities to self-soothe and heal. Much of his work comes from the impulse to create more space in the nervous system and body through vibrational frequencies that connect us to our ancestral wisdom and being.
Ben is the co-founder of HOME and E L I X I R, two monthly virtual sound practices. In addition, he has presented live and virtual sound experiences for Columbia University, Policy Center, You Can Thrive, Gatherwild, and Ben Lomond Quaker Center. His recent film, Beauty Medicine, a collaborative sound visual art project with Dr. Grace Osborne, opened at SANG's gallery in Brooklyn, NY, and can be viewed here.
