Abstract: Maarten Visser, of Amsterdam, is one of the world¿s leading authorities on adapting woodwind instruments for people with disabilities. He has successfully adapted numerous wind instruments, including a flute with a one-handed mechanism that has a three octave chromatic range, now played by Edit van der Burg-Mayer. In 2003, Ms. van der Burg-Mayer won the first prize in the 20th Dutch National Flute contest in the category C (17-33 years old), competing against able-bodied participants playing on conventional flutes. The finals of this contest for nonprofessional flute players from Belgium and the Netherlands were held at the Conservatory of Music in Tilburg, the Netherlands. Mr. Visser is currently building Ms. van der Burg a second-generation one-handed flute, which promises to have even more capability than her current one. More information about Mr. Visser and his business De Fluitstudio can be found on his website http://www.flutelab.com/ index.htm. This interview was held in Amsterdam on June 29, 2006.
