Seretan: Performing music beyond the limitations of media

Sorry. Audio for this interview is unavailable.

Ben Seretan is an electric guitarist. He’s interested in what he calls “Long Music” that exists outside the limitations imposed by physical media like CD’s and records. He plays now up to 3 hours at a time in the “smokestack building” on the Sheldon Jackson Campus. He’s one of this year’s Sitka Fellows, who will be on campus through the end of the month. An “Open Studio” is scheduled for Friday evening Aug 30 for the public to view the Fellows’ work.
