Benjamin NID is a saxophonist, composer, and multidisciplinary soundpainter certified  by Walter Thompson, creator of this universal sign language for real time composing in 1970 New-York.

In 2008 Benjamin started composing with actors, dancers, singers in an hybrid and powerful way, bringing performances on stage but also in streets and public transports. This experience has built Le SPANG ! collectiv. joined by 12 musicians with whom he produced more than 50 performances on stage.

His way of seeing guided improvisation has also been developed through studying John Zorn’s cobra, Butch Morris’ Conduction and Santiago Vasquèz percusio con Segnas (la Bomba del Tiempo).

Benjamin is teaching workshops in Lyon’s University, National Dance Center, Paris contemporary music school, Salzburg Experimental Dance Accademy with Ceren ORAN, National Stage with Walter THOMPSON and he leads creations with conservatories and stages gathering sometimes more than 100 performers.
