Bernhoft

 

continued

Musicians nowadays bridge the divide by manipulating samplers and loopers in live performance. These attempts have in the main been a bit awkward, with lots of stopping and button-pushing that seems out of place in all but purely electronic genres--and in hip-hop, where the divide between the human and the electronic element is sort of the point of the music. Bernhoft, by contrast, brings voice and electronics together. He's actually better in person than on recordings--he's been all over the place lately, including on The Ellen DeGeneres Show--and the digital aspect of his presentation may be more organically integrated into natural human music making than that of any of his predecessors.

Bernhoft comes to the Ark on November 18, with a New York band called Miracles of Modern Science opening.    (end of article)
