1997-2000

 

por Gustavo Ávila

In 1997 he set up his own recording studio with several keyboards, among them Ensoniq MR-76 and Roland JP-8000. Then Fritsch has dedicated more to the electronic compositions in the computer throwing. In 1997, the CD Behind the Walls of Imagination was a lot influenced by keyboard players of the 70"s. Unlike Dreams, the 1997 album approaches more the progressive than new age music, creating climates that take the listener to other horizons.
