Who is C.M.Dencker
Chris DenckerChris Dencker’s Music

Chris writes a variety of music, from upbeat rockabilly to his own unique style of dark metal. His creation of classical pieces merge his dark melodies with orchestral instruments for a sound that is all his own. His most recent solo project is called Lyd (which translates to “Noise” from Norwegian) a project in which Chris explores distortion, noise, sonic disintegration, fractal generated music, alternate tonalities, non-western scales, and microtonality. With this website, we hope to share some of Chris’s creations with the rest of the world.
