What does life look for you now?

I am a musician and music teacher at Radford. I am also married with two children.

You can read my bio here:
Ben Marston is a trumpeter, composer and electronic musician based in Canberra. He has performed with many of Australia’s leading jazz performers including Bob Bertles, The James Morrison Orchestra, Emma Pask and Hetty Kate. His own more recent work has seen him fuse electronics and remix with more traditional jazz instruments, resulting in his nomination for the prestigious Freedman Jazz Fellowship in 2014. His use of electronics led Ben to travel to Norway in 2015 to study with the world pioneer of live remix Jan Bang and work behind the scenes at the renowned Punkt festival. In 2017 Ben released his new collaborative work “In Walked Pris” with Simen Lovgren on hellosQuare recordings.
