Popular Electronics (November ’19)

Bernie Connor


Bernie’s is a broad and fascinating story with many twists, turns and sine modulations, and he’s inviting you along for the ride.

In the middle of the 20th century, experimentalists cast aside conventional instruments and began to manipulate sound using electronic instruments and devices; a whole new universe of sound was discovered. As Bernie explains, there is a seamless line that runs from the tape manipulations of Karl Heinz Stockhausen right through to the acid noodling of DJ Pierre in 1980’s Chicago.

Mr Connor has been playing music out and about for almost four decades. It has taken him on a journey that has allowed him to absorb a wealth of musical knowledge and shows no signs of giving up.

This month, Bernie is back once again with the musical education. And boy does it sound good!
