Release: Live at The Gatherings 2015

released March 3, 2016 | Materiaal Series, Part V | Prelude to the performance with Erik Wøllo at The Gatherings concert series in St. Mary’s church, Philadelphia, October 10, 2015, recorded live to 2-track


The performance at the historic St. Mary’s Church in Philadelphia, PA is the cornerstone and launching point for a series of phenomenal live shows which happened during Bernhard’s fall 2015 visit to the East Coast. All pieces of this concerts were composed in the moment and recorded live. “Live at The Gatherings” is the fifth recording in this series that has been already released.

St. Mary’s was lovingly built in the style of Historicism; it’s ancient grace and beauty fitting for a cinematic location and Bernhard’s stellar performance. Listen as Bernhard saturates the air with complex and soothing soundscapes in this pivotal, monumental performance.
