Biography

Eloy Fernando Fritsch (born 1968) is the keyboard player and main composer of Brazilian progressive rock band Apocalypse. As a solo artist, he creates music.

Since his childhood , he’s been studying music and researching new sounds through synthesizers in order to express his electronic compositions. In 1983, Fritsch formed progressive rock band Apocalypse. They are considered pivotal in the development of progressive rock in south of Brazil.

In 1992, he moved to Porto Alegre and began his solo project composing Electronic music. His first official solo album was DREAMS, recorded in 1994 and 1995. During 1997, he released his second solo album, BEHIND THE WALLS OF IMAGINATION, which showcases his skills with various electronic and acoustic keyboard instruments. In the mid-1990s, Fritsch secured a recording contract with French Label Musea. His third album for them, Space Music, was released in 1998.

The composer reveals his sci-fi style with CYBERSPACE. In this album, Fritsch offers instrumental music of seventies inspired keyboard symphonic / electronic progressive music. Fritsch performs an electronic music that evolves between Vangelis’ ambient & impressionist electronic, and the synthesised Progressive rock of masters such as Rick Wakeman. Nevertheless, Fritsch has found his own style within melodic Electronic Music. The compositions are very melodic and emotive, with multi-layered instrumental textures/voicings and solidly coherent arrangements.

    Only just discovered Eloy Fritsch and i am quite impressed with his music which is predominately symphonic/progressive rock with electronic embellishments. Unique and creative and very listenable with just a tad of the cosmic.
