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 and more recently the SyFy Event “Aliens On The Moon”.
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.
