Phelios is a dark ambient project from Wuppertal (Germany). I also have a space ambient duo with Christian Stritzel (Sphäre Sechs) and organise a dark ambient festival in a church in Wuppertal (Phobos Festival).


I was born in 1983, studied music and work as an organist, music teacher and bike messenger.

Phelios and Sphäre Sechs have released music on labels like Eternal Soul Records, Malignant Records and Loki Foundation. Most of them are available on bandcamp for full online streaming and purchase.


Phelios is a dark ambient project that utilizes deep drones and lovecraftesque sound design as well as heavy percussion and influences of old martial industrial music.


Sphäre Sechs is a space ambient project with Christian Stritzel. All music is strictly ambient and recorded in well prepared and improvised live sessions.


Please visit bandcamp to listen online or get the albums for your home collection.



Phelios and Sphäre Sechs played a lot of shows in Europe. Each concert is carefully planned and a unique experience for the listener. Please address your booking requests via email to phelios@posteo.de and include information about the event you are going to do.
