From Benge:
In 1994 I decided to begin a journey writing and recording solo studio albums in which I would explore new sounds and melodies coaxed from my small collection of vintage electronic instruments. I decided to avoid too many standard musical and rhythmic tropes, and to try and form a personalised version of what was becoming known as Electronica (a sub-genre of experimental electronic music falling somewhere between IDM and ambient music)

The main equipment I had at the time was a Moog Modular 3C, a Minimoog, an EMS VCS3, an Akai S950 sampler, a Lexicon LXP1 reverb / delay and a somewhat chaotic array of acoustic instruments including clarinet, piano and double bass, none of which I could really play. These acoustic instruments were treated and manipulated with the various electronic devices. Everything was recorded and sequenced with an Apple Mac running Opcode Studio Vision and a couple of 40MB hard drives. The result was this album of unnamed tracks, and the succession of albums which I have released since then
