Günther Beckers music has a perfect word for it: Gesamtkunstwerk. Gesamtkunstwerk is an interdisciplinary artistic work combining various disciplines — music, painting, poetry and design. Wagner conjured up this idea when trying to produce a work that could also wrap in artistic ideas derived from theatrical, poetic, and musical influences. Aesthetics would be the English word we’d create to wrap around one whole artistic ethos for a movement. Extremely personal in execution, it was Günther Beckers’ 1982 release Walkman that really put this idea into fruition.
