NIGHT is the second solo album after a long period of live presentations and
artistic research since 2001. The focus of this artistic research is on the behaviour
of feedback-textures (amplified by ever changing sound systems in different sized
spaces with specific relations of wood, glass, stone, fabric etc.), the development
of specific techniques as well as the feedback-textures' metaphors of sound. The
feedback-saxophone sound production is strictly analog, no processing, no effects;
a microphone capsula in the saxophone tube, connected with a rudimentary
pre-amp plugged into a basic mixer, which sends the signal to the front-of-house
sound system and an on-stage, on-site available feedback-trigger-speaker.
(Michael Fischer)


the feedback-saxophone was performed at (selection since 1999)

Biographical notes:
Michael Fischer, musician-composer works on the speech immanence of sounds, their sculptural and dramatic evidence,
in the field of improvised / experimental music. Since the end of the 90s interdisciplinary cooperations in the fields
of literature, dance, performance, visual media within an international context. In 1999, Michael Fischer began integrating
the acoustic phenomenon feedback into his work and developed an exclusively analog, no-effect-based instrument, the feedback-saxophone.
In 2004 he launched the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra and works with international improvisation orchestras, temporary large ensembles,
choirs since then. Since end of the 90ies numerous projects with artists from the international improvisation scene in Europe, Lebanon,
Canada, USA and Japan. Since 2005 radio and live-settings with writers of experimental poetry and prose (f.i. at the Beat Museum San Francisco)
