AWIL 107 - Bernhard Schimpelsberger

 Percussion with passion & precision by Bernhard Schimpelsberger on this A World In London! Click:

What can you say about a man that allows you to read his diary? Bernhard Schimpelsberger allows you to do precisely that, with a series of musical journals made from the past, present, and ongoing pointing into the future, as he unveils his new album, ‘The Rhythm Diaries’. The first instalment, out on CD and YouTube videos, was made in fifteen different cities across Europe, with local musos. It’s a rare peep into a brilliant mind whose cog wheels are constantly creating, turning beats through time and space into hypnotic soundscapes and multi-textured compositions. Bernhard’s love affair with drums began in Linz, Austria on his mother’s knee, and quickly grew to encompass the world at large leading him eventually to India, Africa, and finally London where he’s now based and able to find  musical comrades in all different international shapes and sizes. Cuba is in his sights next. Bernhard shares the same esteemed Indian tabla guru as Trilok Gurtu, and has worked extensively with young sarod maestro Soumik Datta. That’s who’ll be on stage with him next, and you can see them in their Circle of Sound reunion on Dec 14th at Rich Mix!
