Presenting the Fire Organ – the many-headed hydra of flame tubes! A unique way to see, feel and touch sound – through flames and motion. 

We invite you to visit us at music festivals and dance parties across the US and UK. In tow, we’re bringing the Fire Organ – the mutant offspring of a Rubens’ tube and a traditional pipe organ.

With a bit of help from our friends at Buro Happold (in the UK) and Minor Catastrophe productions (in the US), we’ve built two of these beasts: one in America, and one in the UK. Differing from its more timid predecessors, the Fire Organ sports a special set of five pipes, one for every pitch.

If you’re a DJ, musician, rapper, spoken word artist or any sort of audiophile, we’d love for you to get in touch. Throughout 2017 we’ll be launching our first transatlantic fire-filtered freestyle cypher – to see which nation produces the best beats and can make flames fly the highest!
