Biography

Ben is an award-winning composer, pianist and producer from Kent.

He studied Music at Cambridge University where he received a B.A. (Hons) and MPhil Distinction Award.

As a composer, his works have been performed both in the UK and abroad by leading ensembles such as the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Ligeti Quartet with current commissions from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Vanguard New Music Ensemble.

As a pianist, he was a rehearsal accompanist for the National Youth Music Theatre's 40th Anniversary Gala at the West End. Although classically trained, he is also proficient in jazz, RnB and pop idioms, and his versatile approach has seen him work with neo-soul bands, pop singer-songwriters and rappers, as well as interdisciplinary artists, experimental performers and video-game designers.

As a producer, he has a thorough understanding of music post-production techniques (mainly using Logic Pro) and is active as a producer and arranger for various independent artists across the UK. He is also proficient with the music notation softwares Sibelius and Dorico.

As a ‘New Creative’ for the BBC, Ben is currently working on an interview-based, soundscape piece entitled ‘Where Parallel Lines Meet,’ which will be broadcast on BBC platforms in late 2020.
