Ben Wheeler is an experimental musician, composer, and ethnomusicologist whose work features the musical structures of folk traditions meshed with electronic music and lo-fi aesthetics. Influenced by a seemingly disparate array of musical characteristics from the Caucasus, tape music, Soviet-era electronics, and modular synthesis, he has released multiple solo albums under his own name, performed and written for a diverse selection of bands, and worked as a music director and composer. He currently teaches modular synthesis courses at Creative Education Studio in Georgia.
