Born in Alabama and having lived in Boston, in Nigeria, in various European countries, and in New York – where he was well-known in the experimental music scene – before settling in Tokyo, Samm Bennett’s music is just as unusual and variegated. He performs both by himself and in combination with quite a few other musicians, and has set up a small record label, Polarity Records (the website also functions as his own), for his and their work. And he’s very prolific, in combination with quite a few other musicians; this playlist includes a sampling of his recent work. In addition to his label’s Youtube channel he also has one on Vimeo.
Two other pieces on his Soundcloud page are “Burn My Souvenirs”:
And “I’m Going Home If I Can Find It”:
