World of Music

The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night
And his affections dark as Erebus:
Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

(Lorenzo in "The Merchant of Venice" by William Shakespeare, Act 5, Scene 1)

Music in General

There is a musical factor in all the arts and - what may sound strange - in science as well. I can't read a book without thinking or better feeling some kind of music. The same is true to mathematics and theoretical computer science, i.e. if it is not approached in a purely engineering way.

Music like any other arts is a recreation of reality filtered and transformed through the perception of the composer and the listener. But music seems to be farther away from the objects and events of our daily experience than works of literature or paintings. Though there are vocal words with texts, it can exist without any language context.

Music has been and will ever be observed both by our emotion and our intellect. We could even say that music should incite both the intellect and the emotions. A piece of music, which is not stimulating an emotional process would radiate a rational sterility, causing refusal. Whereas a piece purely based on rousing feelings without any intellectual aspect would risk being classified as primitive by reviewers.

It's difficult for me to envision a world without music. Music serves as both entertainment and a source of inspiration for me. Whether I'm actively engaged in playing the piano, keyboard, saxophone, flut or occasionally strumming the guitar, or simply enjoying captivating melodies and harmonies, music holds immense value in my life. When it comes to creating music myself, I started my musical journey by learning to play the piano during my early youth. Over time, I delved into mastering other instruments as well. Presently, I enriched my musical capabilities by using a looper, which allows me to weave together captivating compositions using the electric piano, keyboard, flute, saxophone, and even a touch of guitar. If you're curious about my soundscapes you can explore my musical creations: All Bernd Klein-Videos Among my offerings, you will discover a composition that I find particularly intriguing, featuring a solo cello accompanied by a string orchestra titled

  • Out of the Mud
  • Additionally, there's a piece called Light Waves which showcases a captivating collaboration between piano, cello, and two flutes. Another composition I've crafted is Winding Paths a melodic fusion of piano, alto saxophone, oboe, and drums. And if you're in the mood for a symphonic experience, I've recently completed a majestic work for a string orchestra titled Le roi et ces trois chateux / The King and his Three Castles
