Inspired by inventions like Goethes chemical Harmonica or Trimpins Fire organ
i started to build fire-machines with the special purpose to create sounds.
After a short time i had a little orchestra of flame machines that produced different sounds.
Than i met the chemo acoustic engineer Bastiaan Maris
We played first time together at the "New Prometheans" festival 2002 in Seattle for Kain Karawahn
It was an opera called "fireselfmusicianized" Pyrophony No.18 tributed to Jimmi Hendrix.
Since than the orchestra grew and has today around 40 instruments and several Musicians.
There is also lot of cooperation’ with music artist from all over the world…
