Brisbane's Argo turns Best Selling Novel into Space Opera

Turning a female actor into a messed up robotic male AI is certainly one of the more unique tasks I have undertaken in the name of art music. It was sort of like writing music for a film without being constrained by scenes and editing. We could dictate the ebb and flow of the narrative with the music, rather than have it subservient to image. - Benjamin Heim

Contemporary Classical In Surround Sound with Argo

I love the combination of electronics and classical instrumentation. It really allows for an expansion of the tonal palate of what I can work with as a composer and it lends this unique ability to focus a listener’s ear on subtle aspects of an instrument’s timbre, much in the same way as a videographer directs a viewer’s gaze. Electronics are also ideal for our events as they allow us to fully immerse our audiences in a sound world of our own creation. - Benjamin Heim

In Conversation: Argo

"My work simply stems from wanting to extend and control the soundscape that acoustic instruments perform in, and create some kind of ideal sound world for the music to occur in. Its really captivating because it lets you evoke moods and emotions in the audience from the moment they enter a venue - you get this kind of “metamusic” in which the performance can take place."  - Benjamin Heim
