B.J. Nilsen lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Born in 1975, he began working with experimental music and sound at an early stage.
Benny founded Hazard in 1996 after a couple of years as a guitarist/bass player in several local bands. He has since then focused on the sound of nature and its effect on humans, field recordings and the perception of time and space as experienced through sound.
Many of the compositions here are based on the live work he produced on the Touch 2001 UK tour, and follow-up dates in Europe and North America, with Fennesz and Biosphere.
