Review

Walkman was the third album by German musician/painter Guenther Beckers, which coincided with an exhibition around the same time circa 1982. Hailing from Aachen in Germany, he went on later in his career to tour as a guitarist with ECM affiliated Jazz musicians such as Alex De Grassi and William Ackerman, in addition to releases for Klaus Schulze's cult electronic imprint Innovative Communication. Throughout this album, Beckers implemented the 'Kunstkopf' or 'Dummy Head' technique: a 3D audio recording technology that uses two microphones which are mounted in the ears of a mannequin (hence the name in English). It is a method that exploits certain basic principles of human spatial hearing. For many years until now, copies of this album remained only in the hands of art collectors that were present at the original exhibition. It has now been made available for a wider audience thanks to the team at Amsterdam's Music From Memory imprint, upon a friend's chance discovery at their local radio station.
