Ens is electronic producer Ben Fairweather, an Australian currently residing in the U.S., who specializes in dark & dramatic ambient, and cinematic soundscapes. His sound is characterized by its hypnotic and dissonant qualities, whilst exploring polarities of minimalism and noise. He is inspired by the idea of providing soundtracks for the unexplored recesses of the mental landscape.
In the years past, he has worked in other electronic music genres and has been known for his remix of Gotye’s “Puzzle with a Piece Missing” which featured on the ARIA award winning album “Mixed Blood,” his 2004 digital jazz exploration “Warp and Weft” (Groovescooter Records), and his 2011 self-released “Aether 3” which represents an exploration of cinematic / down-beat sounds.
Somethings people have said about the music of Ens:
"...Truly outstanding... as good as anything coming out of Europe and beyond.The production is superb, the execution breathtaking..." – Zolton Zavos [CD Of The Week - The Brag Magazine]
"... digital manipulation that mirrors the work of our European and British counterparts but stands alone as one of the definitive Australian contemporary jazz-electronic releases. Great stuff... I'm totally blown away by it." Huw Ellis [3D World Magazine]
"Sonically. this album is pure ear heaven." Perry Kilmer [Drum Media Magazine]
"Ens' take on Puzzle With A Piece Missing is nothing short of sublime, it really is. It, as strange as it is to say, better than the original - which can only be cemented by the fact that Gotye played the Ens version during his recent spate of live shows. [Toby Gillard – Webwombat]
