Ben Meyerson is a poet and musician currently based in Toronto, Canada. His work has drawn inspiration from time spent in a diverse array of landscapes: his youth in Toronto; the years he lived in Portland, Oregon; the months he spent writing in Norwich, Norfolk; the year in Cantabria, Spain; the productive visits to cities like Granada, Dublin, and Barcelona.
The primary content on this website is expressed in the form of ‘projects’: each one represents a discrete span of time devoted to the development of interrelated sets of poems, songs, or articles revolving around a specific range of similarly pitched ideas. In order to achieve maximum accessibility, the site also provides pages wherein each individual medium, be it music, poetry, or prose, is gathered together — regardless of any ‘project’ designation. Ben’s hope is that it will be possible for visitors to find an entry point into his artistic world according to their comfort zone, and then broaden and push themselves past it, investigating how different media, when used in concert, can expose divergent and complementary contours of the same idea.
