JULY 6, 2021: Ben Richter (Composer, Accordionist, and Director of Ghost Ensemble)

Ben Richter has created a career with a number of different elements. He is a teacher, a performer, the director of an ensemble and a recording artist. One of the things that we discuss is active listening and how music can be used to help to alter people’s time horizons and better understand slow-moving but profound phenomena such as climate change. We also talk about different ways that musicians and other artists can add value to their content in order to reward true fans and find new income streams.
