In 2011, major South Korean television network, KBS, aired in Korea a one-hour documentary special on K-Pop (Korean pop music). KBS interviewed Bennett Media Studio founder Ed Bennett in his home, asking him about his thoughts on the rising genre and its potential here in the United States. His comments can be found near the end of the documentary around the 51:56 mark.
On September 28, 2012 our guests and audience had a special night with the TECH SERI.ES guest speaker and panelists here at Bennett Media Studio. Our owner Mr. Edward Bennett had an insightful and inspiring Q & A session with the moderator Jay Wadley, musician and composer, Co-founder of Found Objects Music, together with the attendees.
The house was set on fire and the tickets were sold out TWICE!

Who is TechSeri.es?
The TechSeri.es (TM) was founded in the summer of 2011 with the purpose to become a platform to introduce the latest cutting-edge technology and people changing traditional industries;create new networks with people from different backgrounds, mindsets and expertise levels; and provide exclusive access to top names in the industry.
On Jan 17, 2012, Bennett Media Studio again welcomed a full house for an intimate concert of Korean Traditional and Experimental music, with Gamin Kang as the featured artist.
Gamin Kang, the main performer of the night on ancient Korean instrument Piri, played together with Satoshi Takeishi on percussions as well as Jin Hi Kim on electric Komungo, which is a traditional Korean stringed musical instrument.
The three artists connected the old and new with traditional Korean instrument—meeting the sophisticated sounds from new experimental languages of contemporary music, offering the audience a real East Asian Cultural feast exclusively at BMS in New York City.
I took this photo of the audience after my closing remarks and asked them to say goodbye to the artists.
