One-man electric double bass orchestra
Andy Benz or Andreas Bennetzen is an unusual classical musician. As a child he played blues, jazz and soul in the music school at Bernadotteskolen. In his teens his interest for the double bass led him to study with Mette Hanskov of The Royal Danish Orchestra.
His passion for exploring new and original approaches to making music on just a double bass, has lead him to work with electric upright basses, live-looping and other electronics. Often in the context of performance art, contact improvisation, other dance styles and theatre.
With the release in 2009 of his live-looping solo album "Flowing in Circles" he made a powerful musical statement
”Andy Benz sounds like Arvo Pärt on acid”. Frankfurter Allgemeine
“Once, Denmark had one of the world's best bass players, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen. And now DK has another one. His name is Andy Benz and on his debut cd, Andy paints beautiful melodious dreams worthy of both Oldfield and Vangelis. Henning Høeg - BT
Using only the bass and a loop-machine, he mixed elements of electronic music, with his sublime instrumental knowledge, into his own style.
With live-looping and effects, he found a way to dig even deeper into the double bass role as a modern solo instrument.
In february 2016 he released the self-produced 2nd Andy Benz album titled ”Disciples”. This album has some more clubbing orientated tracks among them the single Cumbassia and Grayal.
