Benjamin Smith

is an improviser currently living in West Orange, New Jersey. Smith ventures far beyond the standard idea of jazz improvisation, into a sound world equally influenced by modern classical.

I'm a music feeler and improvisor interested in spreading the learning and practice of music improvisation (not only jazz) in the world. In 2006 I decided to awaken my musicianship and find an organization that shares and promotes improvisation in music for anyone interested, so I joined David Darling's Music for People -- a nontechnical, non-genre community -- and am a Mentor in the leadership program.

I am interested in expanding and facilitating improvisation, collaborating with others who passionately share what they do in art, health, or any field that promotes healthy collaboration in a community.
