Beni Giles is a London-based composer and record producer. He has recently co-written and produced the debut album for Otzeki, and co-produced the new James album alongside multi-award winning producer, Charlie Andrew. Other artists he has worked with include Marcus Foster, JONES and Oscar Jerome.

As a composer, his works have been commissioned and performed by the likes of CHROMA Ensemble, Tre Voci Cello Ensemble, Kit Downes & Tom Challenger, National Portrait Gallery, Huw Watkins, Vickers Bovey Duo and European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO), amongst others.

Addelam, (a collaborative project with cellist, Colin Alexander), was released in January 2019. The music was premiered at Union Chapel as part of the Organ Reframed festival (listen here).

Beni was associate composer for Nonclassical, with whom he has worked extensively over the years. Alongside Gabriel Prokofiev, he has reworked and remixed the music of Mozart, Webern and Martinu amongst others. These works have received performances with orchestras and ensembles across Europe.
