Ben Azarm's work asserts certain arcane sense of approach in examining quotidian imprints of the 'institutionalized' culture. ...His aesthetic models are drawn from fabricated and artificial rendition of epics related to the transgressive edge of the Apollonian reality - Rockford files, Heidi Fleiss, Las Vegas, etc. In the context of sonic parity he treats composition as a Dionysian medium for sonic mutation to induce a shift in pre-perceived aural 'meaning'. He studied experimental music composition with Robert Ashley, David Behrman, and Gordon Mumma at the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College. He received his MFA in electronic music composition in 1982. His compositions have been extensively featured by numerous ensembles during the past twenty years.
