Pharmakustik's Neurochemie consists of eight pieces that involve complex arrangements of clinical ambiences and experiments in granular modulations. Some works also contain modified robotic sounds, vocoded electronic voices, and dismembered rhythmic particles. Neurochemie 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 effects and many external sources. The album represents Siegmar Fricke's perspective on Pharmakustik sound in 2010. Extramitochondrial synthesis and neurochemical maturation electronically generated by Siegmar Fricke at Pharmakustik-Studio, Germany, December 2009 - January 2010. Siegmar Fricke: synaptosomal transformations, granulom programmings, neurodynamics, endocrine modulators, excitatory inputs. Siegmar Fricke started making musique concrète experiments with magnetophones and shortwave radio signals in 1981, and became intensely active in the European tape scene between 1985 and 1993. He has collaborated with Miguel A. Ruiz, Maurizio Bianchi, Giancarlo Toniutti, and others. Since 2001 Siegmar Fricke has characterized his musical universe as "Pharmakustik": audioclinical investigation; sound research; implantation and re-implanation of acoustic fragments; exclusion of harmonies/melodies/traditional song structures; generation of completely electronic and highly abstract tissues; intermodulating soundpools related to medical subjects; neurochemical ambiences; formant-modulation of selected voice-particles; bitcrushed fractures of rhythm; complex combinations of plugins/modulators/effect-periphery. The current techniques of the Pharmakustik sound research are characterized by intermodulating, morphing particles and their mutual interaction in the stereophonic panorama. Automated inspection of otoneurosurgical, motorcortical fragments for the atraumatic listener. Pharmaconstructive audiofluxus 2010. Design by Frédéric Tacer.
