His work includes many styles and projects, ranging from soundtracks and arrangements for (award winning) short films, commercials and games over contemporary classical concert-music to full featured musicals/operas.
BENJAMIEN LYCKE (Torhout, °1989), studied composition at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (Ba & Ma) and the Royal College of Music London (Post-Grad). He wrote and produced as graduation piece in Gent the opera ACUBENS which was broadcast entirely on the Belgian national television (VRT) and was his first step with his collective SYNART to accomplish all kind of projects: He wrote with librettist/director Mien Bogaert several chamber operas with performances in London (PUCK, SOCSOB), Hamburg (CYCLOPS) and Bruges (MONU – een multimediaal oorlogsrequiem). Besides soundtracks for movies (Memento Mori), games and advertisements (ex. Chanel), he composes contemporary concert music for small (Kugoni Trio, Triotique) and big ensembles (Symfonie Orkest Vlaanderen). Choir, opera (Flandria, LOD) and experimental, multidisciplinary projects are his favorites. He programmed light and music for Tinkling I (detheatermaker) by Talitha De Decker (choreographer) and the soundtrack for SNAP XL (Fabuleus).
