A Much Needed Update


released another three albums or something since I last updated this. All available from bandcamp.

For some reason WordPress is broken and I can’t upload any images!

Here’s my new filmclip, for the song “thirst” from “twenty-one words for desire” (released December 2021)

Stay safe out there everyone!

August Tour!

Hello All,

how are you? I hope everyone is keeping safe calm and healthy among the current quickening. It’s such a turbulent time, it is hard to know what the right approach is. Hang in there!

I am going to attempt to go on tour in August. Previous experience tells us this is a fraught proposition but I’m gonna attempt it anyway. All the tickets and information are on this page somewhere and I’m in the process of sorting out supports and what not. Fingers crossed it all comes together, it would be nice to see you all again.

I’ve just finished up my residency/installation at Mona a few weeks ago and it was incredibly productive. I’ve been releasing some of the results on my Bandcamp Page – please go and have a listen. All the proceeds from the Import/Export series are being directed to the Indigenous Literacy Fund.

Anyway I hope I will see you at the shows in August and all the best to you and yours.

Take care


I’m An Installation Now

Hello friends!

So, as of Boxing Day 2020 (remember 2020?) I am semi-permanently installed in the Museum of Old & New Art in Hobart, Tasmania with my own little studio, making music, performing, collaborating, drinking cups of tea, collaborating, watching cricket and generally being dumbstruck. We’ve entitled the project BEN SALTER IMPORT EXPORT which is a sorta dumb Neuromancer riff.

I would like to thank David & Kirsha, and all the amazing staff at Mona, for their patronage, generosity and hospitality. I have already recorded about 15 new compositions (works in progress) as well as many hours of live performance and improvisation. It’s an absolute dream. If you’re in Hobart, please come and visit. Just don’t expect me to be too chatty, I’m on the clock/in the zone. Mostly. Here are some photographs:

Okay stay tuned for more updates. And please join the mailing list!
