Dean De Benedictis Jon Jenkins
Dean De Benedictis’ music 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 artist, also known to the electronic ambient community as SURFACE 10, has always utilized his interest in a variety of styles and cultures to enrich the quality of his musical expression. Like many other artists, much of Dean’s music was composed as a dedication and utility for his own life experiences one example is how many of his pieces were actually created to take with him and listen to at specific locations (deserts, canyons, jungles, mountain regions, coastal regions, and unpopular-unpopulated areas), thus permanently marking the region with the music in his memory. He aspires to communicate a similar functionality for the experiences of his listeners.
