Sebastiano Dessanay Pictures of a Quartet


CD 2018

Ed Bennett and Decibel

The compositions of Irish composer Ed Bennett, played by the Decibel ensemble, are energetic and vivid, a synthesis of contemporary academic music, experimental music, avant-garde jazz, avant-garde electronic jazz, avant-rock and other rock styles, bebop and hard-bop rhythms. The music of this ensemble is full of sudden and unpredictable surprises, stylistic waves and an interesting and vibrant sound.

Togetherness was released by the Irish record label Diatribe Records.
