Speaker Story

Ben Lukas Boysen, also known by his stage name HECQ, is an electronic music composer based in Berlin. Ben has made a career out of transforming unusual sounds into compelling music. His first electronic compositions at 18 were experiments with samplers and tape loops leading to an album in 2003 and the subsequent foundation of his own Berlin studio. Since, he has produced multiple albums (many under the alias HECQ), and led numerous workshops on composition and sound aesthetics, as well as creating custom sound design for films, commercials, video games and installations. Some of his clients include Audi, Ableton, Lexus, Nike, Mazda, BMW, Lenovo, Sky, Cartier, Ritz Carlton, Google, and Swarovski. Boysen’s first film score for Restive premiered in 2011, followed by his debut album under his own name in 2013, and the award-winning score for the Sony Playstation game, Everything, in 2016. Though ‘Spells’ and ‘Gravity’ are his first albums recorded under his own name, as acclaimed electronic producer HECQ he’s released nine albums since 2003, exploring everything from ambient to break-core. He has simultaneously established himself as a trusted composer and sound designer, working for a wide array of clients including Amnesty International and Marvel Comics.
