Welcome to the website of Andreas Bennetzen or Andy Benz
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.
I also write music especially for dance and theatre.
Over the years I have played in all the major symphony orchestras in Denmark and with a long range of musicians from the alternative, pop, rock and electronic music scenes.
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.
For CD´s, high quality downloads, sheet music and more you can visit my own small online store ARBOLIS MUSIC
My solo pieces for classical double bass can also be found on SCOREEXCHANGE
If you want to learn more about the use of electric upright basses, live-looping and much more then you can study with me every year August in Germany at MITTENWALD INTERNATIONAL MASTERCLASSES
