KATAGENESIS

The album of three opuses with similar thematic framework: Symphony No.5 "Axonal Transit", (tracks 1-4; Parts I-IV), Symphony No.6 "Metaspheres" (tracks 5-10; Parts I-VI) and Hymn (track 11). (I) Axonal Transit - A four-part composition, considered "Symphony no.5" for electronics, strings, brasses and percussions manipulated by integrated techniques, consisting in spatial variations of musical themes on ambient matrix. There are used methods of geometric articulation of sub-themes. (II) Metaspheres - A six-part composition, considered "Symphony no.6" for integrated techniques and sonically manipulated strings with dense atmosphere, microtonality and insight into amorphic harmonic structures with the slow, heavy rhythmical patterns. (III) Hymn - variations on theme of old Czech chorale "St.Wenceslas" in integrated digital and analog sonic design of the orchestral instrumentation.
Musicians and cooperators: Vladimír Hirsch - electronics, keyboards, synthesizers, pianos, field recordings; Czech Integrated Ensemble - strings, brasses, timpani, Tom Saivon - production.

SCRIPTA SOLI

Thematic album for integrated techniques & field recordings. 2012-2017. Released on CD (©2017 Old Captain - OCCD33). Inspired by the Russian sci-fi movie "Letters Of the Dead Man" by Konstantin Lopushanskiy (1986). The album is based on a fictive experience during apocalyptic war catastrophe, perceived from the position of a person imprisoned in the bunker. It consists descriptions of feelings and visions in echoes of devastating actions on the surface, as though, all sonically interpretated by the ground. Musical idea and rendition of the figurative opus is carried out as "musique concrète intergrée" (cit. T.Saivon) by the work with field recordings, electroacoustic and digital techniques through metamorphic musicalization of primarily non-musical elements. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - electronic keyboards, synthesizers, samplers, pianos, digital technologies, field recordings, spoken word; Nadya Feir - vocals, Dominika Karčovská - vocals (soprano), production by Tom Saivon.

SYMPHONIES NOS.2 & 3 "BRANDS OF TYRANY"

Two symphonic compositions: Symphony No.2 for synthesizers and an integrated ensemble with the subtitle "Defensa", op.47 (1997) and Symphony No.3 with the subtitle "Brands Of Tyrany" for an integrated ensemble, organ and percussion with the subtitle "Sinfonia integra for orchestra, organo and percussion ", op.52 (1998). (I) Symphony No. 2 is intended for the so-called "integrated orchestra" (as well as most of the author's works of this type), using both electronic instruments, which dominate in this work, as well as authentic instrumentation of a classical symphony orchestra, only slightly colored by industrial and ambient structures. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - synthesizers and keyboard instruments, participation: Czech Integrated Ensemble. A revised version from 2001 has been released on the joint album. (II) Symphony No. 3 is a relatively classical composition, formally representing the full integration of organically classical orchestration with electronics and industrial elements. The composition of sixteen mostly short parts has a martial character. Musicians: Czech integrated ensemble, Vladimír Hirsch - organ and other keyboard instruments. Participation: Martina Sanollová - singing. The album includes a second, revised version (2001).

SIMPLICITY OF HERESY

Thematic album. 1996. The work on a religious theme, created on the basis of electroacoustic manipulation of string instruments, winds, etc., with the simultaneous use of their synthetic applications, with dominant role of organ. Compositionally directed towards the martial industrial-neoclassical model, subordinated to militant rhythms, ostinate loops with a counterpart in a very modest melodic coloratura, which potentiates the permanent tension of tracks. The album later became the backbone of the CD of SKROL "Heretical Antiphony". From the point of view of the musical concept, it is a fundamental issue not only for the author's other solo works, but also for his conjoint projects and bands Skrol and Aghiatrias. Musicians: Vladimír Hirsch - synthesizers, organ, piano, percussion, samples, programming. Remastered in 2005.
