A man of two worlds, Ben Warfield contributes to scientific research studying the biological effects of light on humans while pursuing the larger questions raised by those scientific journeys in the form of music and imagery. He strives to create crystalline compositional spaces to be inhabited by the listener.
When not writing NASA grants or tweaking monochromatic filters at the Light Research Lab in Philadelphia, Warfield can be found recording songs, editing videos for his projections, or wandering out into the night – shooting long-exposure photographs of terrestrial and astronomical phenomena. Ben is currently collaborating with artist David Kessler on a film and video installation for the exhibition Due North and on “Pines” – an epic experimental film about the New Jersey Pine Barrens. He’s also contributing music to Zach Weddington’s upcoming documentary on the Amiga computer, “Viva Amiga”. Several times a year he performs in conjunction with other area musicians in the cinematic music collective known as The Ruins of Friendship Orchestra.
