Welcome to the official website of music producer and writer, Ben Arp.
How you possibly know me:
Crunch Pod: I founded the Crunch Pod label in 1998. I ran the label from ’98 until it’s closure in late 2011. In 2014, I transferred ownership of the label to Karloz.M of Manufactura. I currently have nothing to do with the management and distribution of that label so all inquiries should be directed to the label’s various methods of contact. In 2019, my project C/A/T signed with Crunch Pod. I’m just an artist on the label and thusly am not involved in the management operations of the label (aka – I can’t sign your band, so please don’t ask me).
C/A/T: C/A/T is my main project and was started in 1998. The project began as an experimental electronic “noise” thing, but gradually morphed into a dark EBM project in 2009 or so. I put the project on hiatus in 2011 and briefly brought it back in early 2014. After taking nearly three years off from music production, I returned with a “classic power noise” live set in the Noise Room at the Das Bunker “DB21” 21st Anniversary festival in October 2017. I released a few EPs in 2018 and resigned as an artist with the Crunch Pod label for 2019 onward.
C/A/T is currently producing rhythmic noise / dark techno music and is actively looking for live show bookings for Summer 2019 onward.
Corvx de Timor / C/∆/T: Corvx de Timor (originally known as “C/∆/T”) was a post-witchhouse project I wrote music as from 2012 until mid-2014. I released a pair of albums on the Phantasma Disques label and a host of self-released singles, EPs, and album collections on my Bandcamp. In 2018, I resurrected the project for an exclusive track on the Telekon Slack channel “Telekompilation vol. 1“. In 2019, I released the first EP of new material since 2013, “Imber”.
Corvx de Timor is currently producing post-witchhouse / dark electronic downtempo music and is actively looking for live show bookings for Summer 2019 onward.
Captive Six / Ben Arp / Coverage: Captive Six was an instrumental electronic project that released some EPs on the Crunch Pod label. Captive Six is a retired project. I also released some downtempo electronic music under my given name in 2011 – 2012. Lastly, another side project I was involved in was called Coverage. I released a few tracks here and there in 1999 and 2000. Coverage is now a retired project.
Turn Heel: I founded Turn Heel in 2015 as a site as outlet for my writing – specifically about pro wrestling. The site is currently on hiatus, but will possibly return to cover All Elite Wrestling once that promotions begins with televised events.
