Günter Schickert im Ausland 2.10.2014
Kosmische guitarist Günter Schickert speaks with Keith Moliné in The Wire 366: “For me, music is a living sound. Even to record it is like killing something… I never had an approach to music, my guitar is always trying to find something new every time we play a track. One guitar and delay, no looper or samples at all, but there are hundreds of possibilities.”
„German guitarist Gunter Schickert was probably the only musician to rival Manuel Göttsching in guitar experiments during the 1970s. Coming from a free-jazz background, he embraced the ’space-echo guitar‘ and indulged in the brainy improvisations of Samtvogel (Brain, 1974) and Überfallig (Sky, 1979 – Bureau B, 2012).“

Since Schickert’s 1975 debut Samtvogel and 1979’s Überfällig (on legendary German rock labels Brain and Sky repectively) he has only released work sporadically in limited editions, though he has remained active, producing music for film and theatre and working with a number of groups.
