Benjamin Messelbeck is a composer, producer and musician based in Southern California. His unique style embraces a wide range of mediums from electronic and post-rock to traditional orchestral composition.
After graduating from UCLA’s Herb Albert School of Music, Ben worked as a multi-instrumentalist for dozens of artists in the studio and on the road, touring extensively throughout North America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
His introduction to film music came when he was asked to work on a song for the Wong Kar-Wai film My Blueberry Nights, which was scored by Ry Cooder. As his music began to be licensed in film and television, Ben stepped away from working as a recording artist to fully dedicate himself to composition and production.
In 2015, Ben was asked to compose the original score for the Peabody Award-winning documentary No le Digas a Nadie (Don’t Tell Anyone). Since then, he has scored several documentaries and feature films, and his work has appeared in advertisements for industry-leading brands in the U.S. and around the world.
