Bernardi is a classically trained musician and contemporary composer. His compositions for traditional vocal and instrumental mediums as well as his electronically produced works are neo-baroque in style with an emphasis on melodic material often influenced by 20th-century romantic and post-romantic composers. He has collaborated with notable Washington DC area Choreographers and dancers in staging and producing many original works. His multimedia (electronic music, dance, and film) work "Slightly Uncomfortable" was premiered at the 2006 Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC. This work is based on and prominently features the "Kiss of God" by Marshall Stewart Ball, a 20 year old handicapped spiritual poet.
Bernardi's art projects use acrylic on paper and canvas for painting and a variety of material for sculpture and multimedia works. His annual art output consists of a few works often related to other music or writing projects.
