"The CD 10 of the feedback-CD series devoted to Fritsch's live-electronic works that were composed for the most part even before the foundation of the feedback Studios. At the beginning is the duet for viola (1961), the Fritsch defined as his opus 1. The work grew out of an experimental handling of the viola and established the beginning of a series of compositions in which Fritsch tape recordings incorporated into live performances and partly supplemented by improvisation. Madrigal Triste (1963) also provides an example of Fritsch's interest in translation of text in music: letters and syllables of the eponymous poem by Charles Baudelaire are converted into oboe tones. An accompanying tape changes the sound of the oboe with the means of electronic studios and creates "a kind of imaginary oboe sound space". The complex work Partita (1966) illustrates Fritsch's description of live-elekronischer music as "a new kind of chamber music, the instruments includes not only traditional musical instruments various electronic transformation elements". As a "transformation elements" Fritsch uses special contact microphones, filters, regulators and a delay and feedback system, which is generated via tape recorders, amplifiers and mixer. All five compositions on this CD address the connection between musician and instrument in the new age of electronics. This Fritsch creates previously unheard sounds and timbres." (label info)
