Bruhin is a painter and free-lance artist. Rather by chance, he stated
to occupy himself in the late sixties with the Jews harp. His
interest for this instrument caused him to travel all around
the world tracing out other Jews harp players. Nowadays, he
is in contact with the Jews harp Centre in Yakutsk (in northeastern
Siberia) and he is on friendly terms with Jews harp players
in Japan, Hungary and Austria.
Anton Bruhin is an innovative musician, who
is always looking for something new. So, he plays during concerts
on his self-made electric Jews harp and employs different
resonators like recently developed tubes filled with water.
Anton Bruhin wrote several books and released
more than 15 CD´s as a musician. To name a few, UR-Musig,
Terra Amphibia CD (with Mani Neumeier) and Electric Eel
CD at John Zorn´s Tzadik (with Koichi Makigami).
