ABOUT MUSIC AND ME
Music has always been one of the most important parts of my life, expressing feelings with the colorful world of sound. Trying to interpret emotions, impressions and thoughts and making it more transparent. But it also means the opposite: emphasizing a picture or idea with sound to trigger various emotions or a bigger picture.
Starting with piano lessons at the age of 5, I composed my first little piece when I was 9. At the age of 12, my grandmother Johanna surprised me with a violin for my birthday and I realized that it is not a random normal thing to have the perfect pitch.
Some years later I fell in love with jazz piano and minimal electronic music, played in several bands, earned some extra money with bar jazz and taught myself to play bass. I was studying piano and music theory for about 17 years in both classical music and jazz and had great moments on stage.
MY FIRST SOUNDTRACK ALBUM: "JOURNEY" BY BERNIFOXMUSIC
COMPOSING MUSIC ON MY SAILING JOURNEY
Over the last few years I changed my focus and started to work on my own compositions and mixes, one step at a time with no hurry. It was in the beginning of 2018 when plans came up to go on a journey on a sailboat and I decided to make music an essential part of this sailing journey, to create sound to express all the emotions that accompany the biggest journey of my life.
“Journey” is available on Spotify, Amazon Music and also Youtube.
Is there anything better than combining two passions? In this video I want to show you why our sailingfoxes video soundtrack is 100% “home-made”!
I am sailor, but also a pianist and composer and “Adventure” is one of my first soundtrack projects. To do: Buying a lightweight digital piano for the boat.
“Adventure” ist the first piece of hte album “journey”. It stands for the spirit of adventure, the feeling of leaving soon and setting sails towards the unknown.
My first soundtrack composition is out – the soundtrack for our departure day! We started our journey in Marina di Pisa on September 7, 2018 and are excited about our journey, living on a sailboat with a piano, composing music on the way and exploring this wonderful planet!
More of JOURNEY by BERNIFOXMUSIC:
Crossing the Atlantic on a sailboat with a piano and a new piece of music is recorded: “Storm”. We didn’t have a real storm on the ocean, but a storm of emotions when we made landfall after three weeks at sea.
Peace in my mind, wind in my hair, music in my soul and sun in my heart.
Piece #4 of the bernifoxmusic soundtrack project invites you to calm down, close your eyes and enjoy the sound. Going on a journey in your mind up to the stars and beyond.
