Eloy Fritsch - Behind The Walls Of Imagination (1997)
This is a spiritually charged, powerful instrumental album that maintains a reverent sense of wonder throughout, sort of like the title implies. Behind the Walls of Imaginantion is a definitive crossover disc stradding new age and progressive rock.
1. Overture (1:30) 2. Flying Over The Rainbow (4:17) 3. Eternity (7:46) 4. Quasar (4:03) 5. The Journey Starts Now (5:53) 6. Behind The Walls Of Imagination (8:34) 7. Cosmic Winds (4:03) 8. Floating Free Between Stars (6:12) 9. Tropical Birds (3:07) 10. Triumph Hymm (3:39) 11. The Last Frontier (2:24) 12. Centaur (4:25) 13. The Fortress Of Solitude (3:16)
Each of Eloy Fritsch's works seems to follow a different school of electronic music. He always shows the influence of some artist, though he builds his own technique. Space Music is not different, containing sequencers, symphonic landscapes, electronic drums, quadraphonic effects, harps, timpani, cymbals, and an alien voice (on the track "Journey to the Unknown"), all reminiscent of several electronic keyboardists, such as Yanni (circa Keys to Imagination), Isao Tomita, and Jan Hammer. As in Dreams, his music captures emotional experience and transforms it through upbeat and melodic compositions. This work is the first release by Dreaming, a division devoted to electronic music created by the French progressive rock label Musea Records.
1. Beyond The Galaxy - 2:51 2. Time To Fly - Part I - 3:34 3. Dawn Over The Planet - 7:09 4. Gate To Infinity - 4:21 5. Starlight - 4:23 6. Sonic Attack - 8:33 7. Microcosmos - 4:11 8. Dances With Dolphins - 4:18 9. Journey To The Unknown - 4:01 10. Time To Fly - Part II - 3:51
Cyberspace is the fourth album of the composer Eloy Fritsch. Nicely layered arrangements float serenely by. The emphasis is on orchestral-sounding synthesizers, with soft atmospheric touches. “Lost Paradise” includes majestic rhythms to go along with it, marching triumphantly at a steady pace. The entire work is completely electronic in nature, with a vast array of synthesizers listed in the credits, as well as displayed surrounding the artist on the cover.
1. Cyberspace - 4:31 2. Lost Paradise - 8:50 3. Beyond the Ocean Waves - 5:52 4. Inside the Heart of Universe - 4:43 5. Malacara Canyon - 6:34 6. Symphony of Peace - 6:39 7. Parallel Dimension - 6:35 8. Callisto - 5:20 9. Lake of Peace Movement I and II - 11:05 10. The Arrival of Spaceship - 3:08 11. Tales of the Ancient Sphinz - 4:23 12. Towards to Sky - 5:02
Mithology, the fifth release by Eloy Fritsch, deals with diverse myths of the world. So several cultures were visited, including those of Brazil, the Aztecs, the Incas, Assyria, Greek, Hindu, Egyptian, Nordic, Atlantis, the Romans, the Chinese, and so on. All compositions on the CD were based in his own interpretation of the characteristics of each mythological element chosen for this work. The sounds, obtained from synthesizers and computers, enlarged the possibilities of creation, translating his imagination into electronic music. One track deserves special attention: "Atlantis." The epic symphonic arrangements translate the album's feelings perfectly. It seems that Fritsch put much knowledge in this CD with excellent results. Certainly this CD is a landmark in Fritsch's career.
The tenth Eloy Fritsch CD brings Exogenesis electronic suite in four movements inspired by the genesis of the universe. In addition to this suite that references the first conceptual albums by Jean Michel Jarre, the CD contains more eight individual tracks. Joining the symphonic and electronic, but without forgetting the ethnic instruments, the composer of electronic music uses high technology in the service of emotions to create great music. The CD images were created by European artists specializing in science fiction illustrations Maciej Rebisz and Mirek Drozd and refer to the creation of the cosmos and the existence of other life forms. The Exogenesis Eloy Fritsch album is being distributed by the label Musea/Dreaming in France, CDBaby in USa and Sonhos e Sons in Brazil.

The first album recorded by Eloy Fritsch using computers and synthesizers. His first work was very influenced by science fiction films such as 2001 Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Galactic and Star Trek. His passion for the space is perfectly identified in his music. The composer"s feeling in relation to the possibility of not being alone in the Universe, the fact of not understanding our existence, our little knowledge on the magnificent Cosmos and the surprises that await us in the future, all that is transformed into music. This feelings allied to technological resources of sequencers and keyboards motivated even more the accomplishment of his first electronic compositions.
Dreams' is a solo keyboard production which employs a battery of synthesizers, computers and electronic percussion to produce a full-bodied symphonic electronic rock sound reminiscent of Andy Pickford or Redjy Emond and perhaps some Jean Michele Jarre. He does not list specific instruments, but from the pictures it looks like a mini-Moog and a grand piano are in the arsenal. I believe his synths are all digital (no analog) but there are some very realistic orchestral and choral sounds. The music is very emotional and contains many dramatic build-ups, peaks and respites. It is classically oriented and I don't pick up any Latin sounds... if any, perhaps some oriental influences are present. The production oozes class and there is not one bad moment throughout. This is his debut solo album, but he has been with the Argentinean band Apocalypse since 1991 before moving to Brazil to set up his own studio. He still plays for Apocalypse who have put out 4 albums from 1991 to 1997. (Apocalypse was formed by a group of schoolmates in the early 80's) Here's the track listing for 'Dreams': Space Odyssey, The Motion of Planets, Saturn, Pity, Crystal, Electronic Dreams, Mystical Ocean, The Hall of Imagination, Firmament, Lost Temple and Progressive Concert. His second release 'Behind the Walls of Imagination' is just out now... I have not heard it, but here's what Archie Patterson of Eurock says about it: > Eloy’s follow up album to his debut DREAMS ads further dimensions to his sound. The lush symphonic compositions are still prominent, but this time a bit more energy spices up the mix. I hesitate to call this rock, but the overall sound is definitely energetic and contains some of the most amazing keyboard playing I’ve heard in ages. Without a doubt Eloy could play circles around 98% of the other keyboard/synthesists on the scene today. BEHIND THE WALLS OF IMAGINATION will have you totally entranced by its rich melodies and dynamic arrangements. Fans of electronic music and symphonic rock should love it equally. - http://www.e-prog.net/bands/fritsch.htm
Atmosphere: Electronic Suite is an album by Eloy Fritsch, a keyboard player known for his work in the progressive rock group Apocalypse. As a solo artist he creates cosmic electronic music. The closest comparison would be probably Vangelis, if considering his early work, which included many analogue instruments. Nevertheless, Fritsch has found his own style within melodic Electronic music framework. The opus reveals once again Fritsch’s ecological convictions: he presently defends the virtues of the gas envelope that allow everyone to live on Earth: the Atmosphere, a theme which is carried over to the album art featuring a cloud formation juxtaposed with outer space. The music is sweeping, majestic, and at times orchestral. It moves from clear melodic themes that are somewhat earthly to the more experimental out-there stuff in the middle of the album, only to return to anthemic epicness by the end.
