“Hi! My name is Ben Böhmer and I'm going to show you how I play live. But first - what is playing live? It's a method to rearrange and recreate my own music. I'm using a digital and analog setup to affect all these little elements of my tracks. This gives me the possibility to react more in the moment - to create something new, something special for the night. Let me show you what that means. So let’s get started!” - Ben
