"Sound Theatre 4 contains both traditional and contemporary music played by a master of the hurdy gurdy ('draailier', European folk instrument). Philip Fourier, known as collaborator of Olla Vogala and Geert Waegeman (Cro Magnon) works for national TV. He is a member of several groups and as a solo artist he performed all over Western Europe. All other instruments (bagpipes, fife, dulcimer) are also played by Philip. He started his musical career in the late 70's when he became fascinated by traditional music of Flanders and France and the typical sound of traditional instruments as bagpipes, hurdy gurdy and others. Today he's recognized as one of the most important hurdy gurdy players in Europe. The music he plays is inspired by both traditional and contemporary music. He experiments with all possible techniques and aims at creating a very personal musical expression to the whole. His music leads the listener into a strange, mysterious and enchanting world of sound. [Hurdy Gurgy: European folk-instrument of which the sound is generated by strings that are rubbed by a resined wheel that acts as a bow. The instrument has drone strings, a rhythm string and melody strings, provided with keys in order to play the notes.]
