Patchwork Cacophony

    Patchwork Cacophony is the solo prog rock project of multi-instrumentalist Ben Bell. Originally conceived during the writing sessions for Fusion Orchestra 2's Casting Shadows as a holding space for material than didn't fit that band's style, the self-titled debut album drew comparison to classic-era prog band such as Genesis and Camel, even drawing direct comparison's to Rick Wakeman. The music has a traditional full rock band arrangement rather than using loops or synthesized drums. It is heavily keyboard driven with a focus on instruments such as hammond organ, piano and mellotron and trademark multi-layered vocals, but while there are extended instrumental passages the emphasis is on the music rather than pyrotechnic displays of virtuosity.
