Mank is the ambient electronic project of Ben Powell, based in North Wales.

Ben has been recording as Mank since 1998 releasing "homemade" CD's on his Mankymusic label. Influenced by nature and maths the music is computer based, combining field recordings with real and virtual instruments. Ben works as a ship based technician for Bangor University so ends up using some exclusive recording locations - several releases were recorded whist on board polar research ships at the North Pole, most of the music was written at sea.

Mank has received airtime on BBC Radio 1, Radio 3, Radio 6 and Radio Wales
"one of the most important electronic artists in Wales" - ”Adam Walton, Radio Wales
