Ari Benjamin Meyers (b. 1972, USA) lives and works in Berlin. Meyers received his training as a classical musician, composer and conductor at The Juilliard School, Yale University, and Peabody Institute.

His diverse practice includes creating musical performances for the stage and exhibition spaces. He has collaborated with artists such as Tino Sehgal and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster; bands such as Einstürzende Neubauten and Chicks on Speed; and classical ensembles including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble.
