Ben Osborn is a Berlin-based British poet, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. “Fast Awake” is the first single released via Nonostar Records, the label founded by German experimental violinist and producer Alex Stolze. Composed with prepared piano, stuttering percussion and processed strings, it shows his delicate vocals, the eovcative vibes of the sound and the unusual rhythms structures.
Today we have the pleasure to premiere the official video of the track (part of the debut full-length Letters from the Border). It was directed by Sarah Clara Weber and Andrea Huyoff. His words about it: “We made the video for Fast Awake in the autumn of 2018. It was created by an all-female crew organised by the Cargo Cult art collective, and features a performance by my friend Maria Askew (of Superbolt theatre company). It’s filmed around the Oder River, which is the old border between Germany and Poland – I think the filmmakers wanted to get the feeling of border-crossings, both internal and external, which is an important image in my music.”
