Mank is the ambient electronic project of Ben Powell, based in Bangor, North Wales.
Ben has been recording as Mank since 1998 releasing “home made” CD’s on his Mankymusic label. Influenced by nature and maths the music is computer based, combining field recordings with real and virtual instruments. The last 2 releases (Isbjorn and Ambergris) were recorded whilst on board Russian polar research ship’s deep in the arctic ocean, most of the Mank albums were born at sea.
