Manuel Göttsching live …

Samstag, den 4.2.2012 im Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin - Solo,
mit Joshua Lightshow, mit dem Manuel schon im Lincoln Center NY gespielt hat:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW1dcpaORl8&feature=related. Wir
hoffen, dass Ihr alle kommt und es auch überall verkündet :-). Joshua
ist der Erfinder der Liquid Lightshows, aber legendär auch deshalb,
weil er schon Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Santana u.v.a. in den
60/70ern "geleuchtet" hat.

Manuel wird hier eine Musik spielen, die Ihr wahrscheinlich nicht kennt
Und am 8.6., Freitag, spielt er dann zusammen mit Ashra (Harald und
Steve) in der Berliner UfaFabrik, wo das Correlations-Album entstanden ist.
Auf www.ashra.com gibt es alles Weitere

Void - Avoidance (44507)
"Avoidance" by Void. Right from the first moment lovely mellow
analogue synth and mellotron sounds shimmer from the speakers.
Apocalyptic synth stabs increase the tension then an equally ominous
sequence surges through the mix, stamping its Berlin School
credentials firmly onto the music. A lead line skips through the
pulsations as things become increasingly rhythmic. A second lead
flashes like a laser above it all. As the track goes on there are even
moments of Jean Michel Jarre around the Oxygene to Magnetic Fields
period. The second part uses an even more beefy sequence and this time
"Demon Haunted World" by Under the Dome comes to mind. Yet more
swathes of mellotron are used. Chimes ring out over a swirling mist as
'Faded Away' gets into its stride. A tinkling sequence nestles low in
the mix. A melancholy piano lead is particularly effective. 'the Dark
Ages' starts with an almost explosive reverberating synth stab, fading
into more "tron". It's another dark eerie one. A rumbling bass
sequence adds a touch of menace. A second sequence provides a ray of
light but overall this is wonderful moody stuff. Another flashing lead
adds an exciting edge. Multi layered sequences fall like an avalanche
of pulsations on 'st Anthon's Fire' and it's a hundred mile an hour
journey throughout. We wrap things up with 'Avoidance VI'. Yet again
it is rather dramatic but soon becomes triumphant and positive as
lovely lead lines and sequences weave around each other. A superb
track, probably the best here.

The album should do extremely well. As well as the influences I have
quoted above the artist also mentions early Tangerine Dream,
AirSculpture, RMI, Pyramid Peak, Arc and Redshift. It would also be
nice for him to upload his self titled first album.

2011. David Law / United Kingdom

Wellenfeld - Big Bang (69557)
A good reference point is Fanger & Kersten's "Mind Flux" series. I
would categorize the "The Big Bang" as Mid Era with a Euro feel.
Hardcore traditional synth fans may not like the beat-orientations in
the tracks. However, as someone who appreciates the many sub genres of
electronic music that have evolved in the past three decades, I think
Detlef and Andreas have done some very nice and colorful compositions
on this latest release.

The first track opens with a serious tone that's mixed with vocal
effects to produce a very nice cosmic vibe. Many others like "In
Control" merge the some of the best styles of Redshift with Kraftwerk
circa "Computer World." A nice crossing of styles and I look forward
to broadcasting this Wellenfeld on my radio program.

2011. Pat Murphy / USA
