Ben Peers creates an expressive minimalism arising from a fascination with repetitive music and the evocative power of sound.

His systems-based approach combines an exploration of algorithmic sequencing techniques with the tactility of a small hardware synthesiser setup, each recording capturing an arrangement of interactions between machines and software.

Ben is currently based near Birmingham (UK), where he completed an MA in Electroacoustic Composition in 2015.

Following several years of inactivity, Ben began his current trajectory in 2019, building up a collection of home recordings before emerging in May 2020 with Eight Variations, a contribution to Elli Records’ In The Room series.
