They don’t make themselves
Béla Bartók, Erik Satie
Eben Bull learned carpentry and woodworking from a young age, and that creative attention to detail has been a driving force in his life ever since. Experimenting with music and video from an early age through adolescence, Eben graduated from the School Of Visual Arts with a BFA in film in 2001, then spent three years in rural Japan teaching English and studying traditional Japanese arts and music. He continues to weave together an eclectic range of artistic disciplines in his personal and professional life. In the past 5 years, Eben has edited numerous film and tv projects including two feature films with director Henry Corra, made ambient sound recordings in Japan, Cambodia, Kenya, and Europe, recorded and toured internationally as a multi-instrumentalist with the London-based band Sian Alice Group, created sound design and original musical score for commercials and other projects, and most recently collaborated with director Angelina Nikonova as the director of photography on her debut feature film in Russia, which won best Cinematography at the Kinotavr Film Festival. When he has a bit of spare time, Eben renovates and builds furniture for his Brooklyn apartment, or learns a new instrument. At some point in the future, he may learn more about plants.
