Ben performed two exciting sets at The Gathering combining spacy ambiences, trip-hop and jungle beats, and virtuosic playing on his custom-built "Mutantrumpet"

Amazingly, this multi-layered performance was all being controlled in real-time from Ben's Trumpet. The sound from the trumpet, and input from controllers mounted on the instrument were fed into a computer running interactive software. So all of the synthesizer parts and drum patterns behind Ben's trumpet were being triggered and controlled live. To make matters even more complicated, Ben was also controlling the slide projectors that added surreal visuals to the show
