Benge is Ben Edwards. He has been exploring the sonic possibilities of electronic instruments since he was a small boy when he would spend his evenings in the music room of the school his parents ran.
Being the 1970s it was full of synths and organs as well as percussion, recording and other vintage instruments.
After studying painting at art school in 1990 he began to set up a music studio and started recording his own blend of electronica, culminating in his debut album "Electro-Orgoustic Music" and the formation of Expanding Records in 1995.
Since then he has released over 30 albums as Benge as well as many collaborations with various luminary artists. His studio Memetune houses a collection of precious electronic instruments where he creates his work and produces his albums
In 2020 Benge recorded a one hour piece for the new modular synthesis platform Modulisme, which includes a weekly radio program showcasing various artists working in the experimental modular synthesis world, and for which Benge provides the voice as the presenter of the program (modulisme.info)
