In recent years, Bernhard has been more and more curious to expand his horizon, not only on his instrument the bass guitar, but also as a musician and artist in general. Experimentation became a vital part of his daily routine. He has been working with sound, light, visuals and video, exploring their relations and effect on each other. Following you can find some of these experiments.
