His film music has been performed live to picture at The Barbican's Silent Film & Live Music series and most recently to a screening of Albert Lamorisse's Le Ballon Rouge at Milton Court Concert Hall. The latter was a collaborative re-scoring of the French classic.

Benjamin also works as an arranger. Most recently this has involved arranging strings for up-and-coming R&B artist Melisa Whiskey. Previous work includes arranging additional string parts for the single Threshold by Redlight alongside Jonny Coffer.
