Ben Daglish is one of the best known composers in the computer game music scene. He was born on July 31, 1966. When he was a baby, his parents moved to Sheffield in the UK. It is currently unknown how Ben got into music or the video game music business. Some of his known works include Deflektor, Last Ninja, Pac-Mania, and Trap. Later, Ben and Antony Crowther formed We M.U.S.I.C. (We Make Use of Sound In Computers) so they could get paid for the music they composed for computer games. Mainly, Ben worked for Gremlin Graphics, Core Design, Teque Software, and Vortex Software.

There is a debate whether Daglish composed Cybernoid for the NES. Ben says it was not him, but the programmer of the game, Chris Harvey swears by it that Ben did in fact work on the music and sound.
