Preston Beebe

Preston Beebe is a composer, percussionist and sound artist who uses technology at the forefront of his work. Researching and creating new ways to interact with sound using electronics and extended techniques, and through collaborative and solo projects, he pushes the traditional boundaries of sound creation. His artistic approach embraces audio feature extraction, organic processes, and the exploration of the interactions of microscopic and invisible elements in space and time. His fascination with sound’s energy combined with feedback drives his artistic approach to site-specific installations and performances. He holds a Master of Music Composition from McGill University and a Bachelor of Music Composition, Electronic Music, and Percussion Performance from the University of South Florida. He is the co-founder of Whim Ensemble together with Ofer Pelz and has released albums on Ambiances Magnétiques and Kohlenstoff Records. His work has been performed in France — at the Centre Pompidou —, as well as in Spain, England, Greece, Canada, and the USA. More
