Master Electronic Musicians Dean De Benedictus and Vic Hennegan will be performing 3 sets on this weeks edition of Music With Space on Friday Night just after te midnight hour (technically Saturday morning.) This is a “must not miss” even for fans of electronic and ambient music.
About Dean - Dean’s music, among other mediums, is the result of his will to tie an essential common thread together between opposing genres and mentalities, as well as draw from them a natural sense of emotion, expanse and mystery. This Southern California-based producer / performer / musician / visual and conceptual artist (otherwise known to the electronic/ambient community as Surface 10 or as Surface 10 Activity) has always utilized his interest in a variety of styles and cultures to enrich the quality of his musical expression. Beginning his deep exploration of music in the 80′s, De Benedictis covered a wide gamut of musical experience; moving through many jazz fusion and progressive rock bands, music theory classes, and producing/performing source music for network television over 12 years of his career
About Vic - An artist and a spiritualist, Hennegan contemplates the state of humanity through his music. “Many of us have lost our connection with ourselves, the planet, the universe and those around us. Through dance, we connect to our spirit self and to the earth. Through song, we connect to each other, becoming instruments in tune and in harmony reaching a new and higher level of consciousness. My intention and purpose is to create and bring forth music—for dance, for harmony and for spiritual connection.”
“Vic Hennegan absorbs the beauty of this surroundings and translates that to a fine musical expression.” (Little Universe) Hennegan’s work as a live performer makes him a rare commodity in the electronic world. With computers, samplers, vocals and synthesizers, Hennegan’s instinctive hand creates techno-trance and ambient music in a wildly fun, uplifting spiritual experience that will take your soul on a journey to the center of ecstasy.
Hennegan’s music emanates a unique warmth which moves the listener to a state of euphoria. Through complex and insistent rhythms and vocals, Hennegan accomplishes “a lush dynamic that relentlessly strives to entertain.” (Matt Howarth, SonicCuriousity.com)
