Introduction Ben Kang

Hi y’all, I’m Ben Kang. I’m an Economics major in the college of Arts and Sciences. I grew up around church music in Houston, Texas, and I’ve played keyboard and drums for a while, developing a soul/funk playing style. I play keyboard and do A/V work for the guys back home. I’m always looking for fresh music to listen to and get inspired. I switched from piano performance to musical composition when I was in 8th grade, and since then have been creating orchestral compositional work, one of which is on my soundcloud, benkang99. During my junior year, I started looking into digital music production with software like Ableton and Logic, and starting teaching myself. Since, then I’ve been churning out beats whenever I have time, and I’ve uploaded some of them to soundcloud. My latest work is inspired by 60s-70s funk, and incorporates many of the same instruments, such as the Rhodes keyboard, Hammond organ, and wah clav. https://soundcloud.com/benkang99/funky. I’m looking to get better at producing and working with live bands.
