- Siegmar Fricke's earliest musical experiments since 1981 involved reel-to-reel recordings of short-waves and acoustic noises that were arranged in the stereo-field to complete compositions of musique-concrète. After various activities within the worldwide tape-scene from 1985-1993 he concentrated on his solo-works and also on collaborations with important figures of the experimental scene: Conrad Schnitzler, Maurizio Bianchi from Milano, Miguel A. Ruiz (Orfeon Gagarin) from Madrid, Giancarlo Toniutti from Udine. PHARMAKUSTIK is related to medical subjects because the working-methods on sound have similarities to surgical procedures: cutting acoustic particles, decomposing, involving granular-synthesis and complex parameters for complete dissection and re-implantation of electronic fragments. Beside many CDs and net-releases worldwide there are two-vinyl-records by PHARMAKUSTIK so far: "Neurochemie" (2010 on www.rotorelief.com) and the limited private transparent vinyl-edition of the "Cryosection"-EP (2013). Since 2015 Pharmakustik has been concentrating on multitracked pharmacodynamic soundpools of mindexpanding nature.

FRACTURE MECHANICS represents Pharmakustik's most complex work in microfracture sound-experimentation, consisting of six pharmacodynamic soundpools which have been developed within the past 14 months. Cracking/propulsive rhythms have been combined with various layers of macromolecular ambiences and vocoded articulations from the Broca Areal, embedded into a threedimensional audio-field. The album represents as well Pharmakustik's visionary perspective 2016: freeze-fracture rhythms disappearing into paracellular granularity; osmosis of multipolar sound-particles; neuromodulated ambiences; synergy of ultrastructural acoustic events. FRACTURE MECHANICS has been generated with a wide range of analogue hardware, magnetophone-techniques and audiosurgical plugin-processing.

"Metaplasie" wish to be the reversible replacement of modular withstands maturation in abnormal environment of electro-cells which cease to exist the carcinogenic stimulus. The two histologic experimenters irritated the mucosal epithelial into a pathological secretion in order to obtain sounds for stratified squamous metaplastic emotions. You are invited to enter their embryonic nightmare. Have a good "metaplasic" meditation!

NEUROCHEMIE consists of 8 pieces that involve complex arrangements of clinical ambiances and experiments in granular modulations...Some works also contain modified robotic, vocoded electronic voices and dismembered rhythmic particles. The Neurochemie album in a way sums up all the experiences of previous Pharmakustik-releases by concentrating on total modulation of sound and its effect on the nervous system using a wide range of plug-in effectors and many external sources.The album represents Siegmar Fricke perspective of Pharmakustik-sound.

Nuklearmedizin concentrates on Pharmakustik's current studies in radiopharmaceutical audio-processing and interventional radiology of seven neuroacoustic movements. Nuclear ambiences, molecular sound-orbitals and aneurysmic voices labeled with radioactive tracer have been combined to complex systems of resomagnetic ultrasound. Fluctuating radio-signals interacting in acoustic rooms of multiplanar imaging and industrial CT-scanning. Protonic algorithms for radiologic technologists.

GRAIN NUCLEATION by PHARMAKUSTIK contains six movements in electronic audio-sputtering: ejection of acoustic atoms by granular bombardment. Within the complexity of microexplosions and collisional processes, the obscure ambiences and rhythmic granules permanently melt and re-melt and change the state from solid to liquid (and vice versa). Radiovoices become the multicomponent target for prolonged mechanical treatment and physical sputtering. Grain Nucleation is the most energetic and uncompromising Pharmakustik-album to date and introduces a new form of spectrometric ambiences, sputtered vocosynthesis, molten micro-granules and electron collisions.
Exclusive electrodramatic collaboration with QUORPEX on 'Electron Diffraction'.
01 GRAIN NUCLEATION
03 ELECTRON DIFFRACTION
05 ROTARY EVAPORATOR
PHONOSURGERY by PHARMAKUSTIK contains eight phonomicrosurgical movements exploring the cartilaginous frameworks of radionecrotic audio-tissues and granular procedures. Phonation treshold pressure by decimated bitcrushing, functional reconstruction of implanted trauma and micronized granulisation form the main character of the album. Rheometric investigation of phonatory frequencies, viscoelastic ambiences and hyaluronic rhythms.
03 POSITRON EMISSION
04 NIGRAL PERFUSION
06 COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS
Granular Computing features radical new techniques in granular transformation of audio-particles, clinical rhythms and robotic voices for a powerful, innovative and harsh electronica-sound-perspective 2011.
The album involves excessive use of new software and imposing plug-in-machinery.
