Ben Bertrand

Ben Bertrand is a Belgian bass clarinetist and composer. With his instrument and countless machines, Ben creates his live performances with a hypnotic web of sounds. Listening to his music is like sitting at the sea, watching a slow motion of our crazy life sailing by. With his former works ('Era/Area', 'Off-Record' 2017 and 'NGC 1999', Les Albums Claus 2018), Ben toured in Belgium, France and Netherlands (Meakusma Festival, Ancienne Belgique, Le Lieu Unique, Schiev Festival, Le Guess Who?, World Minimal Music Festival).

His album 'Manes' has been released in March 2020, in collaboration with Stroom and Les Albums Claus. In 2021 he released his third album ‘Dokkaebi’ on Les Ateliers Claus.
