Visionary genius of futuristic free-guitar. Reichel played improvised avant-jazz but always accessible and never self-indulgent. All his FMP albums come highly recommended for the outer-limits musical explorer. Later in his career he outgrew the guitar and invented his own instrument - the Daxophone - a thin wooden blade mic'ed up and played with a bow. It has a unique, almost vocal, sound. He also invented and manufactured many variations on the standard guitar with different positioning of fretboards and even a double neck back-to-back guitar with no body. He would always find new ways to play guitar - ie with an electric shaver.
Alas Hans passed away in 2011 but left us his amazing musical legacy and his reputation as a true pioneer will, I'm sure, continue to grow.
His website daxo.de is still active and is an original, captivating and engaging site rich with Reichel's elliptical and humourous 'take' on music.
Reichel was also an accomplished font designer and many of his fonts are still very popular, especially in advertising.
