From tattoos, books, back to music. Meet Bernhard.
“I live in Augsburg, Germany. Music is the most important thing in life for me. I currently live my passion for singing in my band Unclouded Perception. Moreover I like the following things: Friends – Togetherness – Honesty – Spontaneousness – Individuality – Darkness – Poetry & Philosophy – Meeting people from all over the world – Concerts – The ancient world.
UranianWilly: If you weren’t doing what you are doing at the moment, what would you wish to do and why?
Bernhard: I’d like to tour the world on foot or with my bike, meeting people from everywhere, experiencing other cultures and climates. I often would like to break free of this regular life. For sure it has its advantages too but it is regulated by many rules, above all by time. To do what I want, wherever I want and whenever I want would meet my inner wishes.
For now I try to make the best of it and do other things to feel free, like lots of music, sports and smaller tours.
UranianWilly: If I was to turn on your music player right now, what 3 artists/songs would I see on your recently played
Bernhard:As for right now, you would find songs of the artists “Primordial”, “Solstafir” and “Ahab” on my list.
UranianWilly: If you had a chance to bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Bernhard: This may sound a bit akquward but if I’d be able to bring someone back it would be my black cat “Jacky” – and yes, I do see cats as persons. As you might guess, Jacky wasn’t a regular cat – he walked with me wherever I went. If cats weren’t allowed to come in there, he waited in front of the door. In addition to that, he was almost twice as big as the usual cats, but not big in sense of fat. I’m quite sure he must have had a wildcat amongst his relatives. But however powerful he might have been, he couldn’t beat the car which finally caused his death. Anyway, at the current state he’s the most important “person” to me that I have lost through death.
UranianWilly: What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into and did you learn anything from it?
Bernhard: I’ve gotten into various trouble but after all I cannot think of a particular harsh one. What I learned from it is to stay calm whatever happens, for the situation is never as bad as one might think at first.
UranianWilly: What three things you regret not learning to do?
Bernhard: Blacksmithing, Professional Psychology, Medicine.
UranianWilly: What do you like most about the work you are doing in the moment?
Bernhard: I’m currently working in the human resources department. My colleagues are very friendly, the working hours are good and I’m always learning something new.
UranianWilly: Do you believe there is intelligent life in the Universe?
Bernhard: In the universe, aye? So if I’d say no I’d deny intelligence on the world too. I believe there’s intelligence in the universe, both here and on other planets.
UranianWilly: What 3 adjectives would you use to describe your personality (even the weirdest or funny example)?
Bernhard: Different, liberal, energetic.
UranianWilly: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Bernhard:“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
UranianWilly: Ten years from now you will be where or what?
Bernhard: Hopefully I’ll be a professional musician then – I don’t care where. 😉
