Benjamin Lount
BA Creative Music Technology

Neath Based Musician,  producer and DJ, Ben Lount, took his first steps into music production on an Atari ST in the early 90’s. A couple of years later at 15 he started Djing with a mobile disco company, playing local schools, bars and other events. He was obsessed with music and discovering all the weird and wonderful styles and genres that the world had to offer. Later he started to play guitar and bass and has played in several bands, in his hometown of Aberystwyth, in London and now in Neath.

Ben felt that there was a big gap in his knowledge about music when it came to theory, composition and arranging, and at the tender age of 38 decided to go back to school to try and plug this gap. Three years later, he has mostly just learned that the last 3 years have barely scratched the surface of all there is to know. But that’s ok, he’s not going to be giving it up anytime soon.
