«Come and get another dose of 'pharmakustik'. 'Autolysis' is yet another sonic adventure from aural waves investigator Siegmar Fricke. Fricke is a veteran experimentalist and has managed to come up with a truly unique m.o. in music composition and arrangement. His works are an intricate web of sounds woven from scientific formulae and experiments translated from theory into practice. Siegmar calls this technique 'Pharmakustik', perhaps as a hint to the medical qualities of his creations. All os his releases follow a methodology and are the result of that same methodology.

About 'Autolysis' he writes: "Decomposition of necrotic rhythm-cells within organic ambiences by the action of phaser-modules. The aural operator recycles the postmortal sequences from acoustic death by the process of bit-reduced autolysis." This is the experience you'll be listening to.
Enjoy your treatment.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«Did you ever wonder what the decomposition of necrotic rhythm-cells within organic ambiences by the action of phaser-modules would sound like? Well, we didn’t and we certainly didn’t except it to sound as organic and beautiful! Autolysis is – hands down – one of the most special and astonishing records we’ve come across for years – and that say’s a lot. It steers clear of clichés and tedious stagnation, and instead keeps on giving: there’s always one more subtle layer to explore, always something going on beneath the scientific surface. It’s truly amazing and quite thrilling all the way through. Another superb test tube release. Go download!!!!»
