about

This is a 24-bit version. Studio quality

We all have a cross to carry out into the world for everyone to see. It gives us joy and pain. I have now carried the double bass around the world for more than 20 years and it still gives me both.

My approach to music is finding new ways to Xplore both my playing and my composition. This part of the journey is taken with my electric upright bass from Yamaha. The SLB-100.

I decided to take the use of the electric-upright bass to the next level. Instead of recording with the live-looping technique, all the tracks are recorded in Ableton Live. Still I only used sounds from bass, the Yamaha SLB-100, played through an Ampeg Flip-top and a PJB amp. The sounds are then processed into a sometimes unrecognizable state which creates the special sound of this 2nd Andy Benz album.
