Bernhard Wöstheinrich – Live in Nazareth 2011

subscriber series

“Live in Nazareth 2011” is the recording of the concert at the Soundscape Concert Series in Nazareth, PA, USA, October 2, 2011.

Ranging from floating ambient sections, classically inspired synthesizer music to sequencer work-outs and innovative electronica this record documents how Bernhard already then has developed his personal way of performing complex orchestral live looping performances without pre-arrangements.

The release “Live in New Jersey 2011” is from the same tour, and it is very interesting to listen this music in comparison and to understand the connection between the individual performances.

Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Matt Howarth – Undesirable Creatures

Release + Graphic novel and animated short movie

“Undesirable Creatures” is the new collaborative effort of graphic artist Matt Howarth and Bernhard Wöstheinrich; it is the graphic short story of a magician stranded in a post-war Moscow, accompanied by a music soundtrack that embraces, enhances and underscores the eerie mood of the chapters much like a movie score.

The music features a cutting-edge live composition technique: a mix of generative systems and improvisations that Bernhard has developed for his recordings. For this project, special attention was paid to the creation of “magical timbres and odd rhythms.”
Visually, the individual panels of the comic strip are transformed into layered animations, much in the way television documentaries alter old photos into something more tangible and with a distinctive depth. The animation pays homage to the classic comic style, yet is modernized with an expanded depth of perspective.

“Undesirable Creatures” will come in different formats; the music soundtrack, comic strip, and movie will be available to download from the Bandcamp page.

Release date February, 26 2022.

Bernhard Wöstheinrich – Experimental Studio Session 20220108

subscriber series

This is a set of impromptu performed electronic music, recorded in one pass at January 8, 2022, in Berlin, Germany.

In this live set I experimented with combinations of different timbres; orchestral sounds and cinematic harmonies mixed with distortion and saturation more common in rock music.
