After years of composing "modern music" for renowned ensembles including Asko / Schönberg Ensemble, Nieuw Ensemble and Doelen Ensemble, playing metal in his teens and then jazz, improvised music and making electronic music, Friso van Wijck decided all this, and more, could be summarized in the music for his band "The Steeplepoy?s Revanger".

As a composer influenced by atonality / pantonality, serialism, algorithmic and aleatoric compositional techniques, modern jazz, and writers / poets like James Joyce, Dylan Thomas and E. E. Cummings, Friso aims for a synergy between these different, sometimes completely opposite worlds.
