Ben studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where he wrote for Film and Live Performance. He frequently collaborated with The Drama Centre, writing music for a variety of plays, where he developed an interest in creating musical sound worlds that were part of a narrative. Ben also worked with choreographers and his commission with Transitions Dance Company is currently on display as part of the Theatre and Performance Collections at the V&A.
Upon graduating Ben worked extensively in film and Tv, frequently for Harry Escott, contributing arrangements and additional music for The Wedding Guest, Deep State Season 2 and Greed as well as assisting on Wild Bill and Deep State Season 1. Ben also contributed string arrangements for Elizabeth Chomko’s debut feature What They Had. More recently Ben was the Music Editor and arranger for The English Game, a six part series about the origins of football for Netflix.
Ben scored a number of short films before doing Here Comes Hell, a debut feature from Jack Mchenry which played at a number of festivals including Glasgow & London FrightFest, Seattle (SFF) and Sydney (SFF) where it was well received for its take on the horror – comedy genre. The music was praised for its homage to the sound of 1930’s film scores.
This year Ben has written an instrumental EP, working with Recorders, Percussion, Ukuleles and Cello, continuing his interest in creating sound worlds for new ensembles.
