electric lighter, quartz clock







Duo... – CD CS044, Lisbon 2005

His first desire was to be a deep bass singer, in order to sing the role of Wotan in Wagner's Ring. But it was difficult because he was a very small boy. So, as he's impatient and lazy, he told himself that starting to smoke was the solution to transform his voice. And that was the revelation : the sound of the electric lighter. Since this day, he practices electric lighter and quartz clock intensely. He won many distinctions for his performances, especially for his transcription of Goldberg's variations for lighter, and for his first solo album "Ooh baby baby, nobody plays the lighter like me".
Sometimes, in order to make his friends laugh he plays guitar and composes music.
