Biography

The end of the 70s, Punk and New Wave pop into everyday life. Ben zen Berg, straight 16, is totally thrilled by this music. With friends, he sets up a band. A short time later they get their first of many gigs. Ben quits his job, only wants to become a musician. With different bands and projects, he tramps through the country, from one gig to another. It works well until the major companies take over the scene.

Ben zen Berg in the mainstream? Not at all! He starts jobbing, moves to Duesseldorf, learns to play the flamenco guitar and saxophone, falls under the spell of the Tin Drum album of Japan, their early solo projects, finds inspiration from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, is influenced a little by New Romantic, Takahashi and Sakamoto, by post punk white funk, by funk itself, but also by Arabian and gypsy tunes. Trying to establish himself as a musician, he works to earn money and practices, practices, practices. At the age of 25, Ben defects to the other side. He forgoes music and enters the world of capitalism!
He starts his career at an advertising agency and eventually becomes a graphic designer with his own agency, dipping off into new media. Ben sketches and programs new worlds, in which he loses himself afterwards. As the .com blister bursts asunder, so does his life. He tumbles a while, then bounces back to the real.
