The sound of Oklahoma City musician Askanse defies easy categorization. It’s electronic music, but computers are just a tool producer Ben Hill uses to find, make, layer and manipulate every sound he can imagine.

“I get a lot of ideas just throughout the day biking around or when a lot of times when I'm taking showers for some reason that's a zone in which I have a lot of musical thoughts,” Hill says. “I just hear ideas or sounds or even whole song structures in my head and I try to realize that.”

It’s Tuesday afternoon at the Sandy Bell Gallery of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. The natural light showering the galleries above barely makes it down the stairwell to the space where Dr. Konstantinos Karathanasis, Assistant Professor of Composition and Music Technology, is performing. 

This intimate concert is part of the Tuesday Noon Concert series, a weekly 30-minute musical showcase at the museum.
