What to Expect
I would sit and play my instrument either in a flashy style or very ambient. I improvise long flowing pieces that are perfect for background but I can have special moments to show off and be dynamic. I do not play covers. All original. An exotic and hypnotic ambience.
Fritz Heede is a Los Angeles based music composer/producer and multi-instrumentalist who weaves eastern and western influences into dramatic and evocative works.
Fritz has created music for feature films and television specials like NBC’s Emmy winning “Mystery of the Sphinx” where he worked with Charlton Heston. This launched his Egyptian period that lead him to go to Giza and record in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.
He is an accomplished guitarist having specialized in Flamenco guitar. He is competent with the Indian Sitar and the Turkish Saz and has skills with exotic hand drum percussion. Though, he works mainly with piano and electronic keyboards, he prefers to incorporate acoustic instruments in his music for their organic articulations.
He co-created the surreal art DVDs “Illuminated Manuscripts” and “Ritual Path” which features Jon Anderson of YES, as well as Lithuanian-American singer-songwriter Nijole Sparkis, for whom Fritz produced the world-pop CD “Parallel Universe”.
Fritz then started co-writing with Jon Anderson and produced a lush innovative album, “Dream Dancing”, that is now being expanded.
Additional Booking Notes
Low impact, simple set up. I can expand my set up with Sitar, Turkish Saz, hand percussion and Piano. I have a small PA rig for larger venues I would need to plug into house PA. I bring my own stool.
All original improvisations based on my own original themes. Flamenco, classical and Celtic styles. Very atmospheric and trance like, at times passionate and dramatic!
