30 CENTURY MAN – SCOTT WALKER ACCORDING TO MAGNUS CARLSON

A musical portrait of the groundbreaking singer-songwriter Scott Walker: an outsider and a pioneer who became famous as a teen pop idol and went on to reinvent himself on several occasions during his more than 60-year-long career. He has inspired countless other artists including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Brian Eno, Nick Cave and Radiohead, and this concert with Magnus Carlson and Hans Ek features both music by Scott Walker himself and some of the music inspired by him.
