Siegmar Fricke: transistor-radio, cassette-recorder, electronic organ

digital transfer from original tape-archives + mastering by Siegmar Fricke at Pharmakustik-studio in August 2017

My main musical interest has always been the avantgarde...the decomposition, modulation, transformation of source-material. In 1981/82 my earliest experimentations involved therefore explorations of the shortwave-universe...since my childhood I have exclusively been interested in freeform electronica and musique-concrète, far beyond traditional forms or stereotypes of the existing music around...Creative experimentation instead of song-structures.
