Ben van Tienen
Composer and Musician
What is your musical background?
What is your advice to singers performing your works?
Because I have a theatre background, text and communication are both really important to me. I think as choirs we can get so focussed on purity/beauty of sound that we lose sight of the fact that we’re also performers! We have an audience that wants to engage with us and hear our stories! Let’s therefore tell our stories clearly and wholeheartedly!
What are your favourite pieces you’ve composed?
