With his label ECM, founded in 1969, he became world-famous. His recordings with jazz musicians such as Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek and Chick Corea set new standards: Manfred Eicher, the outstanding music producer of our time, was awarded this year's Honorary Award of SoundTrack_Cologne by Michael P. Aust, Matthias Kapohl und Matthias Hornschuh.

Extract from the Laudation by jazz pianist Hans Lüdemann:

"[...] You are the ideal of a creative producer. You are giving support, critique and stimulation in the process of the creation and realisation of music and you are preserving it at the same time. I would like to quote once more Jean-Luc Godard, who saw you apart from all the producers he knew from the film scene and who were only concerned about the commercial utilisation. Godard described the way you work: "He searches, he hears something and then he tries to create soundscapes, of which other record producers do not have the faintest idea. And it is not until afterwards he thinks about the distribution".
