‘Climes’ is an exploration in atmosphere and mood from Ben Wright aka Mi. Utilizing lush textures, intricate beat structures and satisfying harmonic movements, ‘Climes’ inhabits a liminal space between an experimental tech-house experience and a deep, reflective listening adventure.
Ben Wright aka Mi is a musician based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. He is an experienced guitarist, facile in many genres, a sound-designer for the immersive multi-media experiences of renowned arts collective, Meow Wolf and an accomplished producer and mix engineer. Mi is the electronic music Ben makes on his own time.
The music of Mi is playful and organic, deep and melodic and danceable by design. Ben recklessly creates his own audio palettes (using found objects, field recordings and acoustic instruments as well as analog drum machines and synthesizers) and shapes them into architecturally layered compositions rich in dimension and harmonic bliss.
Mi has released albums with Archipel Records (Canada), Make Mistakes (US), DreamAwake (US) and Aufseit Records (Germany). Ben is also a founding member of the post-rock/electronic trio, D Numbers, half of the upstart techno duo, Public Address and a co-founder of the Santa Fe-based record label, Mesa Recordings.
