1. A short video of Dean De Benedictis's attempt to summit Mt. Shasta for his Summit Music project in 2009.

    Description:
    The Summit Music Project involves making live electronic ambient music at somewhat removed, natural locations. The project will climax in 2010 with four Pacific Northwest summits, where live electronic music will be performed at the top.

  3. Simple explanation:
    My name is Dean De Benedictis and I've been a recording artist/producer throughout much of my life. This year -2010- I've been experimenting by traveling the western U.S. on my free time and creating ambient/experimental/cinematic music at natural settings. I start and finish each piece at a single location, and within roughly an hour or two.

    This short film is a montage of half of the locations I covered during my first Southwest trip in the Spring - Part 1. I plan on making another short with the rest of that trip. I also plan on taking my second trip in the Fall of this year, so watch out for more on that. The project is called "Travels Rendered" (formerly named Ambient Travels). Feel free to let me know what you think. I'm also in the middle of a similar project called "The Summit Music Project." To get more info, read my blog at - summitmusic.blogspot.com

    P.S. Just to avoid any potential confusion from the film: no, I don't live in Reno, I live in Los Angeles.

  4. Producer / musician Dean De Benedictis does his a cappella version of the old jazz standard "As Time Goes By" as an art stunt at Times Square during AM hours. It is performed live, using Live looping (Abbleton), to honor the area for his project Travels Rendered, and was one of the somewhat-disheveled last stops of a difficult project trip. The recording takes place during the NYC trip of 2011, but the song and video are intended as a general New Year's gift.

    This sketch is intended as a sentimental, lonely, reflective, noir-like tribute. To achieve this effect visually, Dean put filtering effects on his footage, this particular selection having been filmed in-and-around the Times Square area.

    More videos from this project will be posted over the coming year, as well as updates on Dean's approaching trips through the American west.
