After a decade of touring in the punk scene, in 2009 Ben von Wildenhaus began performing solo guitar in New York City and releasing cassettes and albums. New York Music Daily called his sound "deep noir" and Spin described it as "a tight confluence of meditative anti-shredding." His style has been compared to fellow New Yorkers Jim Campilongo and Marc Ribot. In 2011, he released Great Melodies From Around, a self recorded instrumental song cycle that swarms between crooked ballads with sampled Iranian percussion and barely audible AM radio transmissions from other decades.
