To important and influential role with his involvement in various rock based formations, including wire, and has therefore worked for choreographic projects and art installations.

Achim composes records (but one will not hear any reproduced music) to a music that comes out of the medium. Using a triple vinyl deck set-up, his analytic auditory observations of ending grooves – Grooves all sound different, Depending On how dust has Effected and transformed the soft surface of the vinyl – convert tiny dust particles into a “sound sculpture”.
