A different kind of score to follow

Ben Nobuto is a British/Japanese composer, pianist and producer from Kent, UK. With a style described as ‘postmodern’ (Nonclassical) and ‘utterly contemporary’ (Manchester Collective), his music explores themes of attention and fragmentation, often drawing from internet culture and popular idioms in a playful, ironic and surreal manner. More often, his music is concerned with the symbolic nature of sounds rather than the sounds themselves, how memory and meaning are embedded and transmitted sonically.

It’s not uncommon to experience feelings of dread alongside joy. In spaces like clubs, pachinko parlours or Instagram, there’s a strange mixture of euphoria, boredom and anxiety that makes it hard to locate how you’re actually feeling. You’re just there, vacant and mesmerised in the rush. SERENITY 2.0 simulates this kind of environment by taking fragments of sound and accelerating them into brutal, lurid territory. SERENITY 2.0 was commissioned by Manchester Collective as part of their Heavy Metal tour in December 2021.
