Pyke studied keys at the Conservatory of Amsterdam at the pop department. He is well known for his iconic and peculiar keyboard sounds, interesting and complex rhythms, sharp melodies and harmonies. He loves to mix different kind of styles from Indian music to Irish Folk. Nothing is too weird for Pyke. Groovy, enchanting, slightly psychedelic, very mesmerizing and a willful mind that sounds like Pyke Pasman. Besides playing in bands he is involved with organizing festivals and events such as the Felabration Festival. And on top of that Pyke writes music for film. He composed music for the short film ‘Stuff’ by Malu Janssen. In other words; Pyke is a real all-rounder!
