"fried dähn, who has played with the world's greatest
avant-garde artists, gave a performance which went straight to
"he projects himself into space, transplants bach
to mars, flies over africa and asia, stops briefly by jimi hendrix
and john cage.a journey into time, groovy,groovy, magical, bizarre,humorous".
"dähn creates a world of wilfully entrancing complexity
and unmistakeable commitment; suddenly a beautiful motif appears,
then he juxtaposes puritan classic with distorted sound, instinctively
provokes metaphorical associations between gurgling speech fragments
"one thing immediately captivated: fried dähn's
performance on the e-cello [...] stylistically crossing all boundaries,
he showed the audience which way contemporary music could be heading,
and the electronic possibilities will be playing a decisive part."
