Ben Barden 16


London UK   Jan 2007  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Mike Oldfield, Jean Michel Jarre, Genesis, Elton John, + loads more

British composer of instrumental music. Multi-genre. 2017 is only my 2nd FAWM - my 1st was in 2007. I'm hoping to use FAWM 2017 to generate tracks for my tenth album, which is currently called "Ten". I'll try to make my musical ideas a bit more inspiring than the album title!


Hurrah, did it! I might keep going 😀

    Hi Ben and thx for comments on Explorer 49. I have listen to Space manouvers today. Nice recommendation. Surely will check out more after fawm. Going to be busy these last days in february. (By the way: I am @engebretsen . Footprint on the moon became my fawm ambient project this year. I will do all I can to do FOTM finish...)

    Hi Ben!

    Thanks a bunch for letting me know that "Mrs. Blue" wasn't working. Turned out a lot of the others also were linked wrong.
    You are my hero! 😀

    Hi! Thanks for noticing, I've fixed the link now, it's here just in case. I'll of course return the favor and follow you back.

    Thank you so much for your comment on Would You Like to See the Wood! I am so very pleased you compared it to The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Hoops shared his love of early Genesis with me and I guess I absorbed it enough for it to come out in the music I wrote. Your comparison means a lot to me!

    Hey, thanks for the comment!
    Yeah, Einaudi has some a lot slower pieces, but also plenty more urgent ones. Especially on Divenire and I giorni. That guy does some enticing pieces. 😀

    Thanks for your kind words on our track 'sunshine follows the rain'.
    I have had a little listen back this morning and I'm actually quite happy with the mix for a change. Usually I go ear blind and think "what was I thinking" in the morning. 😉
