Published by Sub Rosa / Quatermass in 2000.

After a Very Best Of, Benge is now guiding you through the labyrinth of old-school new technologies. In a strange world where human computerization is no longer a myth, listen carefully to the guide's voice, read between the lines and find out how to survive...still employing the services of vintage music machines, the whispers of old processors and the secret soul of forgotten technical sources. Benge is back! After a Very Best Of, a magnificent exploration through his expanding label back catalogue, let's go to silicon valleys! A guided tour of this mythical universe, listen carefully and you might hear the beating heart-core of strange computers, the musical echo of this incredible world of ideas and visions, a place where the perfect symbiosis between man and machine is first made reality. But what are the consequences of this synthetic cross-modulation, this obsession filling our minds and bodies with new technology ?. Can Benge really survive in this head-to-head battle with our cybernetic future?

Benge is Ben Edwards. He has been exploring the sonic possibilities of electronic instruments since he was a small boy when he would spend his evenings in the music room of the school his parents ran. Being the 1970s it was full of synths and organs as well as percussion, recording and other classroom instruments. After graduating from art school in 1990 he began to set up a music studio and started recording his own blend of electronica, culminating in his debut album "Electro-Orgoustic Music" and the formation of Expanding Records in 1995. Since then he has released fourteen albums as Benge.
