French artist Bernard Weadling started playing electronic music at the age of 14, using a Korg MS 10 as his first synthesizer. When he was 16 years old, he had built his own home studio which contained various synthesizers along an SQ 10 analogue sequencer and a 4-track tape recorder.
Early 2000, Bernard started work in the music business, promoting electronic music in collaboration with several independent record companies. In addition, as specialist on the history of electronic music and its instruments, he was often asked for conferences and shows on the subject. In 2010, Mr Weadling finally founded his own production company, producing a cd with music for chromo-therapy that sold over for 2000 copies, which was preceded by his privately released first solo album “Out of Time” in 2009.
The albums music resumes various musical influences, especially those of Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Space, Space Art etc. made in ‘70’s and ‘80’s. Most sounds on the album come from the Kurzweil K2000 and the Waldorf Q, while Bernard applied the Moog Voyager and the DSI Poly Evolver for some sequences and lead voices.
Well, the 11 songs (all clocking at four or five minutes each) offer fresh contemporary electronic music which keenly assembles a sequenced style with the melodic, finding a nice balance between the sound of e.g. Yanni, Patrick O’Hearn and ‘80’s TD next to something of an own sonic trademark. Each title on “Out of Time” is a little story of its own, describing different emotions, states of mind and ambiances.
