In June 2016, Pianist Chris Gall from Munich and London-based drummer and percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger met at the legendary Bauer Studios Ludwigsburg, Germany, to record their newest Duo Project, a musical encounter they call MYRIAD!
Original compositions in a stylistic pluralism, juggling in a multi-layered matrix of world music, neoclassical and jazz, performed on a thrilling setup with piano and a unique setup of drums and percussion instruments.
Together, they create a myriad of musical dimensions.
“one of the most technically gifted and tasteful players we have seen in a long time” Drummer Magazine UK
British-Austrian musician Bernhard Schimpelsberger plays the percussion, composes genre defying music or travels the world collecting new sounds. Bernhard grew up in Austria deeply rooted in Jazz and Western classical music, but it was his dedicated years of studies in India that shaped his unique approach to rhythm and music. Under tutelage of Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, one of the legendary Tabla masters of our time Bernhard emerged himself in the Indian rhythmic system and incorporated its poetry and intricacy into his western music making.
