Benjamin Balas is from Troy, MI, graduating with a BS in Sound Engineering from the PAT department with minors in business, computer science, and electrical engineering. As a student, he released his debut album of electronic music and scored several student short films, as well as holding leadership positions in the student music organizations Stamp Nation and the U-M Audio Engineering Student Section. After graduation, he plans to release the music he recorded for his PAT senior thesis, and to continue working on freelance recording and mixing projects. He looks forward to further developing his artistic and engineering practice in the years to come, and hopefully a safe return to punk rock music in the next few months!
