monopilot was founded back in 1997 as a solo project called “Brandywine”. In 2005, “Brandywine” turned into mono:poly, a two-person project. After several albums and a long period of nothing, mono:poly went away and returned as “monopilot”.

Benjamin Luikenga, founder of monopilot, is also in charge of “ENGELSBLUT“, a german folk project, mainly popular within the Dark / Gothic scene, and “Birth Accident”, a short-lived Electronic Music project.

He is a musician, podcaster (mainly at a German ‘Star Wars’ podcast called ‘Radio Tatooine’, video artist and loves to read.
