It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to Manuel Göttsching, a German guitarist and composer. Göttsching was born in West Berlin in 1952, invented a lot of the musical currents that flow through this newsletter, and passed away last December. When he was 17 he formed the group Ash Ra Tempel, a krautrock group that, along with their peers Can and Tangerine Dream, fused psychedelia with free jazz and novel synthesizers. As a solo artist, Göttsching recorded Glass- and Reich-inspired minimalist music with guitars and synths, most notably E2-E4 from 1981.
Have an awesome weekend.
