Hauser, Fritz

Laboratorio - Solo Percussion

Hauser, Fritz : Laboratorio - Solo Percussion (Hat [now] ART)

Swiss drummer & percussionist Fritz Hauser's solo album creates a fictional percussion center that he uses as as springboard to compose solo works for spaces within the [non-existent] environment, depicted in both spacious and active sound work, generating open-air locations with bird sounds and cymbals and areas of quick-paced activity; absolutely impressive.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Fritz Hauser writes: "The correlation between space and sound has always been a driving force in my music. This recording is based on a project with architecture students, involving a fictitious percussion centre. The resulting ideas inspired me to compose music for spaces that do not (yet) exist - percussion sounds that reflect mainly the architecture of my mind. Enjoy!" Hailing from Basel, Switzerland, Fritz Hauser has developed his sound language in varied ways. From solo concerts, in diverse ensembles, through multi-media projects and many recordings, he has contributed to the development of the drumset from a mere timekeeper to an instrument in its own right. Hauser has been awarded several prizes including the culture prize of the city of Basel 2012 and the music prize of the canton of Basel-Landschaft 1996."-Hat[now]ART
