Albums/Bands

Alongside his TV and film work, Ben has collaborated with numerous bands as a string arranger, performer and co-writer. Ben's home town of Bristol has worldwide reputation as a hotbed of experimental music - a scene in which Ben is increasingly involved.

Recent co-writes include tracks on the Malachai album, \"Return to The Ugly Side\" and The Beekeepers \"Apiculture\", both of which are receiving rave reviews:

\"Return to the Ugly Side has a wide-screen scope, with ominous orchestral swells (courtesy of noted BBC composer Ben Salisbury) and thundering drum breaks that give Malachai a heretofore unheard force and sinister majesty\" Pitchfork

\"With the epic, Inception soundtrack-like tracks of \"Monsters\" and \"Monster\" dividing the record into halves, Return lazes in stoner-rock meets trip-hop and does it in hypnotic style. …The second half does have its own moments of triumph, especially in the beautifully smooth and soothing \"Snake Eyes,\" itself reminiscent of some of the greater soundtrack moments from Thomas Newman.\" Treble

“Soaring and majestic orchestration sweeps over and around soul stirring grooves. Superb.” Zzub Chart review of 'Sea Change' (which reached number 1 in the chart)

Drokk - Geoff Barrow
Malachai - Scott Hendy and Gary Ealey
