I’ve had it up to hear with fish & chips is a Hörspiel exploring the role of listening within professional acts of caring. It draws on my experience as a social worker and asylum support volunteer and is composed of interviews with care workers of all kinds. People were then invited to record themselves reading/singing the script in any way they wanted. This material was used as the raw material a live performance and recording”.
Ben Knight is a Manchester-based musician, researcher, and social worker who has previously worked as a play worker and volunteered with asylum-seeker support charities. He is interested in the politics of listening, singing and publication as a form of performance. He plays music as one third of Human Heads and Katz Mulk and co-edits the DIY journal DANCEHALL with the artist and musician Hannah Ellul.

He has exhibited and performed internationally and published many sound works since 2009 (Vitrine, Chocolate Monk, My Dance the Skull, Alien Passengers). In 2014 he won the British Composer Award in Sonic Art for his piece Public Address, commissioned by the South London Gallery.
