ben Lamar gay


Ben LaMar Gay is a Chicago creator and resident artist for Inferno. He has been facilitating Inferno sessions for 5 years. Currently, his focus is on therapeutic recreation participants and exploring their unique relationship with sound.


Gay is a multifaceted musician who moves components of sound, color and space through folkloric filters to produce brilliant electro-acoustic collages. The unification of various styles is always in service of the narrative and never a pretentious display of technique. Gay's true technique is giving life to an idea while transforming the idea behind the term “Americana”.
