An internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated, award winning performing and recording artist, Constance Demby has been hailed as a 21st century Mozart / Bach / Beethoven, a tall order for anyone to be associated with, but in Constance’s case one founded on an extraordinary musical and creative talent that is testimony to her prolific output and the profound healing both listeners and participants experience, alongside critical acclaim that has followed her every step of progress in a career spanning decades.
In live concert, Constance presents a range of sonic environments accompanied by her penetrating voice: the cosmic-electronic symphonic orchestra performed on digital sampling synthesizers; the wooden hammer dulcimer with over 100 vibrating strings; and the Sonic Steel Space Bass, a ten foot sheet of steel that produces deep, primordial, resonant subsonic vibrations. An original design by Demby, her Sonic Steel Instruments have been recorded by Lucas Skywalker Studios for use in their filmscores, and also filmed by Discovery Channel at Gaudi's Parc Guell for inclusion in "The Power of Music."
A classically trained artist performing since the age of 12, Demby's music has been compared by critics to Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Brahms, Palestrina, Rachmaninoff, Wagner, Puccini, Debussy, Ravel, Copland, Mahler, Vivaldi, etc. Dedicated to exploring the healing power of sound and it's ability to alter consciousness, Constance has received countless letters from those who experienced a major healing or life shift with the music.
