That's fucking easy. He's beautiful, frustrating, inspiring, impossible. His work (that i "karaoke") and my unrelenting loyalty to it and him are "why".
What sort of material(s) are you working with?
Ben is an analog guy, perhaps because there's something retro/chic for his generation to use tech from my generation. Versely(?), I've constantly been surrounded by artists who use the most digital/current things on the market. So, in the simplest terms, I'm using tech that I dig, though referencing Ben's interest in lo-fi tech.
