Ben Srokosz has been creating, in one form or another, since he began making demos of his high school rock band on a four-track cassette recorder in the mid-1990s. Within a couple of years he had started an independent record label, called Spur of the Moment Records, to release the music of his and his friends’ bands. One of those first bands was called ‘Junipur’, with a drummer named Jonathan Abrosimoff.
After studying Recording Engineering and Production techniques at The Recording Arts Program of Canada, Ben took a day job in banking to help support his passions of music and production.
Ben continued working with musicians part time over the next decade, and in 2006 he purchased a handheld camcorder with aspirations no larger than to film bands at the local music venues. By 2014 he had been creating content for so many musicians, organizations, and businesses in Southwestern Ontario, that he left his 14 year banking career to pursue Multimedia Production full time.
In 2016, upon hearing that his long time friend was moving back to the Chatham-Kent area, Ben and Jonathan partnered to form GATTA Creative.
