In his composition work, Benezra utilizes rhythmic and melodic patterns in the urban world. He surveys the role of sound in the interplay of people and the spaces they inhabit and attempts to incorporate those dynamics in his work. He attempts to trigger the listener to reevaluate their environment and their preconceived notions of it and is interested in questioning traditional notions and structures of organized sound and music. His personal sound installation work has been shown in solo and group shows in Austria.
