I'm Benjamin Joel Cran.


You can call me Benjamin, or Ben, or Joel.

I record, alter, play and digitize audio. Everyday I find some new way to play around with sound. Whether it be recording something in a new technique, or processing something in a unique way, or trying a new way to create. There's unlimited things to record or change in audio.

I offer sound design and original music scores for video games and film. Check out my site, send me some feedback, add me on linked in, have fun.
