Welcome to the site of Andreas Bennetzen or Andy Benz. It is great to meet you. Thank you for stopping by.
I am a professional musician with 20 years of experience. I have a PhD in classical solo double bass from The Royal Academy of Music and The Danish National Academy of Music.
Over the years I have played in all the major symphony orchestras in Denmark.
I am very interested in exploring contemporary styles of music. Especially electronic music. Over the years I have developed many new approaches to double bass playing. Specializing in the use of electric upright basses, live-looping and Ableton Live.
I compose and produce music under my alias Andy Benz.
My solo pieces for classical double bass can be found here
You can study with me every August in Germany at The Mittenwald International Double Bass Masterclass
Have a look around, click on some links, listen to my music, read the news and if you feel like it, send me a message.
