Goodiepal or Gæoudjiparl van den Dobbelsteen, whose real name is Parl Kristian Bjørn Vester, is a controversial Danish/Faroese musician and composer. The eccentric and self-made Goodiepal has influenced the course of modern music through radical excursions into computer technology and media art. Until recently he has been employed as a teacher at DIEM (Danish Institute for Electro-acoustic Music) at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. Goodiepal declared intellectual war against the stupidity in modern computer music and media art, which is to say against The Royal Academy of Music, when he quit the job in 2008. As of 2012, he lives somewhere in Europe and is married to the road. Narc Beacon was first released in 2001 on CD format and in 2003 on a double LP picture vinyl with music on each A-side and etchings on each B-side. The vinyl quickly became a collector's item, commanding high prices on the second hand market shortly after it was sold out. A few extras were kept in a basement in Paris in order to compensate for the high prices which were expected. These are now available for sale and released on Fonal Records along with a brand-new gatefold sleeve by Finnish artist Pauliina Mäkelä.
