Gijs Gieskes Zachteman – Ein Heim-Mellotron für Jedermensch auf Cassettenbasis

Gijs Gieskes ZachtemanGijs Gieskes Zachteman

Wer wollte nicht doch mal diesen zerstörten aber auch irgendwie schönen Klang, der analoger kaum sein kann als über das Medium Magnetband abgespielt zu werden und das auch melodisch spielen zu können. Das gibt es und es ist auch nicht der erste Versuch. Der Gijs Gieskes Zachteman.

Das Prinzip ist einfach: Ein einfacher Cassettenabspieler, besser bekannt unter dem landläufigen Begriff Walkman, wird per Ansteuerung an das Gerät über ein kleines Keyboard dazu gebracht den Ton, der auf dem Band ist entsprechend nachzuführen durch höhere Drehzahlen des Abspielers. Dazu benötigt man  ein Endlosband oder eine sehr lange Aufnahme auf einer „handelsüblichen“ Cassette von jedem Dauersample oder was auch immer gespielt werden soll. Es lassen sich somit auch Field Recordings „pitchen“.

LoFi-Mellotron für alle

Der Klang ist immer irgendwie weicher und runder und daher heißt das Gerät auch Zacht(e)man, eine Wortzusammensetzung aus Zacht (=weich) und Walkman, außerdem bekommt man so vermutlich weniger Ärger vom Original-Hersteller, denn die anderen stellen ja mobile Kleinstabspielgeräte für Stereosignale auf Magnetbandbasis her.

Die Vorführung ist liebevoll und kreativ und zeigt, was man im Endeffekt damit machen kann, außer Maid of Orleans von OMD. Es gab ähnliche andere Versuche in die Richtung.

Weitere Information

Die Website von des Herstellers sagt, dass die Geräte bereits alle ausverkauft sind, dennoch sucht er nach weiteren Walkmännern und wird dann weitere Angebote machen.
