Ben Deschamps

Ben – yes, that’s AdminBen for those of you who hang out in the chat at OCT events – has been a composer and performer since his early teens. He combines a Renaissance approach to life (in addition to performing music, he coded OnlineConcertThing.com as well as several other artists’ websites, and co-runs Amphis Music, a Canadian independent record label) with a dry wit. His compositions with Heather Dale have become internet-famous and most people who know of him do so because of his association with the Mordred’s Lullaby singer, but he has performed in scores of ensembles, from space rock to bluegrass to orchestras and string quartets.
His current musical interests revolve around ambient, Celtic and folk music, attempting to synthesise something new out of old materials.
