Composing unique music for film, brands, TV and other projects

Benjamin Talbott, Creative team

Born and raised in Mid Wales, and educated through the medium of the Welsh language, Benjie is a multi-instrumentalist with a special interest in piano and violin, producer of wide creative scope, and poet. He has been a lead composer at John Hardy Music since 2012, collaborating closely with John to create all the sound and music for the epic National Theatre Wales production of Coriolan/us, which was part of the World Shakespeare Festival in the Cultural Olympiad.

Since then, Benjie has been at the heart of almost every John Hardy Music project. He was joint-lead composer on GalesaMom & Me, as well as several episodes of Hinterland / Y Gwyll, and continues to take a prominent role in all aspects of the work of John Hardy Music.

Several of the big tunes in Hinterland / Y Gwyll were initiated by Benjie, including The World Keeps TurningWorth Waiting and Phoenix Dance, which are featured on Hinterland / Y Gwyll Series 2 Album (available from Ffin Records).

Alongside this, Benjie undertakes a large number of separate collaborations under his own name in various mediums including theatre, film and dance, as well as managing Total Samples - a distribution label with a focus on EDM sample packs.
