Step inside the curious hinterland of Benjamin Schoos’ imagination !
When he’s not running the brilliant Freaksville records, Benjamin Schoos is concentrating his efforts into producing lush, string-laden, melancholic and very French pop.
Somewhere between his Brussels studio (aka the Freaksville laboratory) and Paris, multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Schoos has produced, composed and arranged a whole host of songs for a variety of cult figures on the pop scene, including ’80s synthpop star LIO, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), April March & Bertrand Burgalat, Mark Gardener (Ride), Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders), Damo Suzuki (Can), debonair dandy Alain Chamfort, Michel Moers and Marc Moulin from electronic group Telex.
Inspired by the technical genius of orchestrator Jean Claude Vannier (Serge Gainsbourg’s Histoire De Melody Nelson), who he met in 2006, and the creativity of New York noise producer Kramer (Shimmy Disc,Pulp Fiction Soundtrack, Galaxie 500, Low, Bongwater), with whom he has worked on three albums, Benjamin has now decided to explore his inner soundscapes for movies, documentaries and video games.
