Since the stone-age, Fire and Lightning has been feared-entertained to all mankind. Two nutty professors from Deventer, The Netherlands - Uwe Dobberstein and Peter de Man – are using these primal forces to make music. Their crazy live shows are a spectacle of sizzling tesla coils, towering flames and thundering explosions, creating harmony and rhythm. Symphony of Fire tames nature itself.
Just like the fathers of techno, Kraftwerk, they work non-stop in their lab to create new instruments and music. From this, a whole computerized mega orchestra of fire-machines have arisen. Chiptune, rock, classic and hip hop are the musical inspiration of Symphony of Fire and the result is something spectacularly different!
Their pioneering work has not gone unnoticed. Dutch News Channel NOS made a report on duo and they've worked together with Binkbeats en Def P. They've even organized their own festival, The Mid-Winter's Night, and they were the closing act at the Dutch version Burning Man and the international renowned Dutch Design Week. The future is here!
Namibian born, Uwe Dobberstein is responsible for the design, alchemical processes and literally uses the whip during the live shows. Peter de Man is conductor, composer and an electronic wizard. Peter: "The language of Symphony of Fire is universal. We speak this language and give the audience something they have never seen, felt and heard before."
