Franciszek Araszkiewicz – electromagnetic fields
Michael Fischer – saxophone, violin
Music for tenor saxophone, violin (Michael Fischer) and electromagnetic fields (Franciszek Araszkiewicz). With Fischer’s use of extended techniques and feedback system as well as Araszkiewicz’s electronics governed by real-time scanning of electromagnetic fields and brainwave activity the performance shows the timbral variety of this unique instrumentation: from noise and drone structures to ambient sounds. ‚fluctuations‘ was a.o. appreciated conclusion of AudioArtFestival in Krakow, 2017.

Michael Fischer works on the speech immanence of sounds on saxophone, violin, soundscapes and conducted instant compositions. In 1999 he started implementing the electro-acoustic phenomenon feedback, developing the feedback_saxophone, based on a non-effect, analog set-up. Exploring the common grounds and images of articulation and sound, he worked with significant artists in experimental movie, opart, conceptual art, visual poetry such as Marc Adrian, Dmitri Prigow, Eileen Standley or Gerhard Rühm and has ongoing extensive collaborations with writers in experimental poetry.
