Ryan at Cassette Gods’ review of Unit Audio, 25.9.17
“ UNIT AUDIO is freaking cornucopia of found sound, pieced together for maximum weirdness and instant likability. It starts strong and stays strong, continuing on its path toward greatness minute by warped-audio minute. Ever thought you’d hear somebody talk about musique concrète that way?” Read full review here

Dec.2015: Three programmes for Radio On Berlin, collaboration with Rinus Van Alebeek. Check broadcast times (programmes are repeated various times a week).
Programme I: ‘Playing with Voyeurism’ is an interview taped with Rinus in Madrid, discussing early experiences with found tapes and equipment.
Programme II: ‘The Ben Roberts show’ is a sort of home-made radio show where I give an overview of my performance work during the decade 2005-2015, playing excerpts from the releases.
Programme III: To be announced, this one will probably feature Rinus’ ‘remixing’ of some of the above.
