Festivals, Islandkonzerte und neue Songs

Auch wenn es auf dieser Seite den Anschein hat als würde dieser Tage wenig passieren, hier herrscht alles andere als ein musikalisches Sommerloch. Nach einem wundervollen Wochenende beim PPZK Sommerfest in Leipzig werde ich in zwei Wochen das erste Mal eine musikalische Reise nach Island unternehmen! Anschließend geht es unmittelbar ins Radiokulturhaus, um im dortigen Studio 2 ein paar Tage neue Songs aufzunehmen (an denen ich derzeit fleißig schreibe und rumfeile). Erste Kostproben wird es mit Sicherheit am 30.9. geben, wo ich im großen Sendesaal des Radiokulturhaus mit Band und diversen Gästen gastieren werde.

Bernhard Eder und die Nibelungen

Bernhard Eder schrieb die Musik für eine Inszenierung der Nibelungen (nach Friedrich Hebbel) am Max Reinhardt Seminar und spielte auch gleichzeitig die Rolle des Volkers von Alzey. Das Ergebnis nahm er (mit gesanglicher Unterstützung der Schauspieler) auf, das Werk gibt es in limitierter Auflage auf Tonträger, sowie Hörproben auf Soundcloud.

“Als Volker von Alzey im Stück selbst eine Rolle übernehmend, machte sich der Wiener daran, die Texte in eine entsprechende musikalische Form zu überführen. Herausgekommen sind ruhige, zurückhaltende, abwechslungsreiche und ungemein stimmungsvolle Folksongs, in denen, passend zur thematischen Vorgabe, immer auch etwas seltsam Mittelalterliches mitschwingt.” (Music Austria)

Dec. 2011


Bernhard Eder grew up in a small farming village in the Austrian countryside. There he made up his first band wa:rum, formed with friends and playing at parties and small festivals in the region. As a consequence, in 1997 Bernhard moved to Vienna to study Audio Engineering and, in addition, jazz vocals at the Vienna Conservatory. Meanwhile, he released three records with wa:rum, and become popular on Austria's biggest alternative music radio station FM4.

In 2006, Bernhard moved on to Berlin for a new beginning in life and establishing his solo career. It leaded to the debut album “The Livingroom Sessions” (2007), introducing a dozen of lo-fi acoustic own songs and interpretations of Radiohead & Pet Shop Boys songs to his audience. The album was reviewed positively, and rewarded with airplay all over Germany and Austria.

During his “Berlin Period”, he came across (and made friends with) colleagues – with some, Bernhard founded a band to add to his new-found sound. Working with new musicians was an inspiration, as was the city of Berlin itself, sparking a creative fire in him.  Together with the band and a notebook full of newly written songs he recorded “Tales from the East Side”, released in late 2008.

Bernhard released another two records after his return to Vienna: the EP “The Unexpected” (2010) and the full-length album “To disappear doesn't mean to run away” (2011).

At the time, he applied himself to something different: he was invited to write the music for the play “Die Nibelungen” at the Max Reinhardt Seminar (Vienna). This production led to Berhards first theatre experience – as musician, and as actor playing the role of Volker von Alzey.

Back then, he was already working the conceptual breakup album “Post Breakup Coffee”, released in 2012.

This masterfully produced and orchestrated album hums in a tone both modern and old, swaying in slow-motion between the perimeters of acoustic pop, indie and psychedelic and leaving the listener with a slight taste of Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Air and Elliott Smith. Though his influences are apparent, Bernhard Eder has a voice all his own and uses those influences not as templets to shape himself with, but as fuel to propel his music in new and exciting directions.

It is followed by “Nonsleeper” in 2015. In late 2016, Bernhard releases his 6th studio release, a cover album named “Remake”, completed by the live album “Remodel” (2017).
