Ben Rogers is a musician and recording enthusiast who, in an effort to combine these interests, started Loud Sun Studio in 2006. Since then, he has worked in music production, post production audio for film, live recording, and live sound engineering. Ben and his wife Kate live in southwestern New Hampshire and spend their free time getting lost on motorcycle rides, hiking, and taking care of their five hens.
AUDIO PRODUCTION FOR FILM
Ben began working in the film community as an on-set boom operator. Fascinated by the filming process he eventually took on the role of sound recordist and sound mixer. Ben’s familiarity with Avid Pro Tools and with working in the studio made post production audio a natural fit for him.
He has provided audio on location for production teams such as Cavelight Productions, BetwixtNbetween Films, Wayward Ark Productions, Yasvin Communications, and Align Pictures. His film mix credit’s include Toni Nagy’s Searching or Content, Angela Snow’s Mortality of Dreams, Laina Barakat’s Things We Say, and Amy Jenkin’s Instructions on Parting.
New England offers up a wide range of music including Americana, folk, folk-rock, country rock, prog-rock, indie-rock, experimental, classical, chamber choir, electronica, ambient, and hip hop — all of which Ben has enjoyed recording at Loud Sun.
Some of his mixing and recording credit’s include The Bradford Bog People’s People of the Bog, The Cold River Ranter’s Watershed, Wooden Dinosaur’s Spaces, The Hardtacks’ Global Banjar, Footings’ Alienation and Adeem's Volume in the Ground.
Originally a guitarist, Ben also plays drums and percussion, dabbling in bass, keyboards, and vocals when the mood strikes. He is a member of the instrumental rock group, Death to Tyrants, co-founder of the recording duo Current to Ground, and records his own music under the title, Son of the Renegade. In the past, he has performed with the groups Moving Pictures, Adam and the Flood, Redwing Blackbird, The Dave Kontak Ensemble, and Lonesome Lake.
Ben is happy to add an instrumental touch in the studio when needed and has been honored to provide percussion on recordings for artists including Tom Weldon, Jim Murphy, Rebecca Simmons, Kamara O Fa, Fields, Adam and the Flood, and Michael McCarthy.
