Ben Cohn is a third-year student at California Institute of the Arts, majoring in Musical Arts. While mostly writing music in the styles of various video games, Ben is also developing a full-length musical comedy.

Land of the Gods, his Zelda-inspired concept album series, is available through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Spotify. As of now, there are two albums in the series: Land of the Gods, and Land of the Gods: Cojiko Quest.

Another sequel album, Land of the Gods, Volume II, is currently in development, as well as an album inspired by the Super Mario series.

His older projects include Clockwork, a video game concept drawing inspiration from the Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy series.

Ben currently uses Sibelius 7 samples and Pro Tools to create his digital music. All pieces for Clockwork (unless otherwise noted) were made using Cakewalk Music Creator. Later tracks in Clockwork (starting with the Fields Theme) use custom MIDI instruments developed by Ben.

Ben started seriously composing in August, 2010. His favorite composers include Koji Kondo, Nobou Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Joe Hisaishi, Akira Senju, Ko Otani, Grant Kirkhope, Klaus Badelt, Hans Zimmer, Randy Newman, Darren Criss, and Alan Menken.

His top favorite games include Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Kingdom Hearts, Shadow of the Colossus, Mirror's Edge, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, and Portal 2.
