PATCHWORK CACOPHONY


A pianist since he was young but shunned by local rock bands because real rock bands don't have keyboards, Ben perfected the trick of playing other instruments convincingly enough to get through an audition. Once in a band, and with the aid of some educational Deep Purple records, he would usually make the case for introducing keyboards into the line-up after all. In 2007 a chance remark about progressive rock to guitarist Colin Dawson led to them starting a writing project that would eventually become Fusion Orchestra 2. Read more on Last.fm
A pianist since he was young but shunned by local rock bands because real rock bands don't have keyboards, Ben perfected the trick of playing other instruments convincingly enough to get through an audition. Once in a band, and with the aid of some educational Deep Purple records, he would usually make the case for introducing keyboards into the line-up after all. In 2007 a chance remark about progressive rock to guitarist Colin Dawson led to them starting a writing project that would eventually become Fusion Orchestra 2. Over the next seven years Ben composed, played keyboards and sang backing vocals in the band, and produced their studio recordings including their 2013 debut album, Casting Shadows. It was during this time that he began to assemble ideas for his own solo album, Patchwork Cacophony. After a few aborted attempts to recruit musicians to record on the album he decided to take the label solo album literally and, harking back to his early days of learning whatever instrument a band he wanted to join needed, he recorded all the parts and instruments himself.

With other non-progressive projects still in mind Ben opted to use PATCHWORK CACOPHONY for the "band" name as well. A self-confessed musical workaholic (with no inclinations towards rehab), Ben Bell's other side-projects include playing keyboards and vocals for contemporary classic rock band Broken Parachute and scoring sound tracks for Colourful Productions' occasional animations. As one might imagine, the music of PATCHWORK CACOPHONY is heavily keyboard driven and shows the influence of past masters. The lush arrangements and instrumentation however do not come off as retro. Recommended for fans melodic, keyboard-centric, symphonic rock. *Thanks to Ben Bell for the main body of this biography with minor additions from H.T.
