Ben Hippen

Decorah-based composer and recording artist who makes contemporary classical music with a unique cinematic sound. His latest album “Scenarios” has been described as feeling like “…each work is a mini-film score waiting for a screenplay….”

Catch him live at Java John’s on the First Tuesday of every month. Or you can listen to the official playlist “Java John’s Presents Ben Hippen” here:

“[His] original composition was able to express worlds of conflict and emotion, while maintaining an underlying beauty that would bring half of the room to gasps and tears.”

—Lori Shantzis, a.Muse Performance Space, San Francisco
