Biography

Flute-player Pierre Bernard was born in the former Zaïre (the current Democratic Republic of Congo). At a young age, however, he came to Belgium to study jazz at the Conservatory of Liège.

Under the influence of trombonist and music educator Garrett List he increasingly began to steep himself into the world of avant-garde and contemporary music. He can mainly be found in ensembles that fit in with this profile: Octurn, K.D's Basement Party, Kris Defoorts Dreamtime Ensemble, La Grande Formation, etc.

In our W.E.R.F label he is also known for his work in the slightly eccentric mini big band 'Rêve d'Eléphant Orchestra', where he writes most compositions together with Michel Debrulle and Michel Massot.
