Born on June 11th 1954 he is one of the German electronic musicians of the first hour.
He has been composing and producing since the early 1970, has played keyboards in diverse German bands, and was even a member of a street theatre society in Frankfurt.
He´s not only an excellent and influential artist, who has to be named together with musicians like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Klaus Schulze and others, but he is also known for his social and political awareness.
In addition to electronic instruments, he also uses traditional acoustic instruments and even field recordings and real world sounds in his productions. “Bernie” as he allows friends to call him, is too much an artist to limit himself to just one certain musical style.
His works cover Ambient, New Age, Berlin School style, Chillout, Bioacoustic, Soundscapes, sonic arts and more.
He has won a number of awards for his musical works, but also for his graphic arts, for example on CD booklets, which he has designed.
