"Siegmar Fricke started his first musical experiments in 1981 using tape-recorders and shortwave-radio signals to create collages of musique-concrète. After intense activities in the European tape-scene between 1985 and 1993 Siegmar Fricke founded Efficient Refineries and Ambulatorio Segreto in collaboration with Miguel A. Ruiz and Stefano Barban. He also founded Doppelwirkung together with Michael Wurzer. Several collaboration-projects with Italian sound-artists Maurizio Bianchi and Giancarlo Toniutti were realized as well.
Siegmar Fricke also activates under the monikers Bestattungsinstitut and Pharmakustik.
Frickes approach to music is characterised by organic improvisational studies, free form, highly abstract withouth a trace of conventional. He characterizes his musical works as "Pharmakustik": Pharmakustik might be a new path of sound-innovation in today's technological music that often lacks the approach of profound sound-experimentations by focussing just on preset-sounds, melodies and familiar song-structures. (from essentia mundi)"
This tape came out on Anachronismus,tape label run by Axel Ellinger in Ludwigsburg(Germany)from 1992 to 2000.The song titles were on a single little colour copies as shown in this picture.Nice idea.
As for the music:this is amazing minimal electro mixed with some techno,very nice indeed.
