Garfunkle, the bio-engineering scientist by day and producer on the keys by night, returns with his new release on Extra Lovely “This is My Home”. Available now on limited edition cassette and digital download here.

 

 

Ben Gray aka Garfunkle a Pennsylvania native now residing in Boston is a scientist. Whether it be music, photography or bio-engineering Garfunkle disects his subject in order to understand fully the origin of its function. Once he’s gained that understanding he can rebuild that subject by his own hand. Garfunkle began as an MC and producer in high school then started working more with playing keys, programming drums and looping samples while attending college at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He produced a number of works while in Baltimore and developed a sound of his own. Tinkering being one of them is available for free download via bandcamp. Garfunkle’s music is rooted in jazz and hip hop. Using vintage keys synths, chopped up drum breaks, mathematic chord progressions and disection of samples; the science is in the sound. Garfunkle recently earned a PhD in Bio-engineering from Cornell University in Ithica, New York and is working on renewable fuels in Boston. Look for more releases from Garfunkle in the near future at Extra Lovely.
