Dafna Naphtali & Benton C Bainbridge

Duo music & video by electronic musician / vocalist Dafna Naphtali and media artist Benton C Bainbridge. Since their first performance in 2001 (and again in 2006 at Bent Festival) Naphtali and Bainbridge find ways to viscerally connect sight and sound, mixing new and (used/unused/discarded/revived) technology to stimulate heart and mind.
