Wilhelm Bearnhardt is a Brisbane-based Australian producer/designer who’s real name is Daniel J Skinner. Son of Brass player, WB grew up immersed into classical music and later discovered Electronic Music & Computer-based Production techniques. Technology was fundamental for him to experiment his orchestration and compositional ideas. His music, that captures specific aesthetics and values of past golden eras through a modern palette, is distributed via Bandcamp.
” My inspiration comes from many things. The way in which Mark Rothko’s large emotionally intense slabs of colour feather and melt into one another. Richard Wagner for his intensity and boldness, and his progressive storytelling. Alexander McQueen, who I feel shares a common aesthetic for combining golden era themes re-imagined for a vision of the future”
