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 Smile. 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

Ramp - Return (cd) 38621

As its title freely let suggest it, Return is a return to basics for
['ramp] with an album completely made from analog equipments. Only
master aboard of his studio and his abyssal wings, Stephen Parsick
weaves 2 long titles to similar structures where the abrasive and
industrial ambiances blow in the neck of heavy, static and unbridled
rhythms. astral disaster and return are 2 long titles of an average
length of 37 minutes segmented in several parts which are entwining in
2 powerful musical patterns of smells of suffers and colors of steel.
Two titles of a lead heaviness which let themselves caressed by
ambiances as poetic as devilish and bombarded by rhythms as heavy as
unbridled, Return embraces the blackness of Redshift, the tamed
rhythms of Tangerine Dream and the illuminated cosmos of Jean Michel Jarre.
Like an apocalyptic musical book, "122112" goes down from celestial
bodies with a slow linear movement adorned by cosmic dusts which
sparkle in an ambiance stuffed with atmospheric tones. Ambient noises,
restrained impulsions, crystalline serpentines, scattered pulsations
and dark breaths feed this intro which amplifies its Dantesque
character to finally sink into the heavy implosions of "astral
disaster" and of its angelic choruses immured in the entrails of a
condemned landThe ambience is heavy and stigmatized by a scent of
suffer made iridescent. The choirs murmur and their voices join to
synth lines at once mephistophelic and poetic which float and which
tear of their silvered tones the walls of an abyssal corridor in order
to hide in the depths of immobilism. This opera of choirs sclerosed in
time gets transpose into the limbos of the steel mill from "unholy
messiahs" which, such as sunbeams after a torrent of carbonized
drizzle, moderates the chthonian ambiances with a pas sage with the
colors of rainbow, before that the anger of the gods thunders with
"iniernal machines". "part one" opens the infernalities with deaf
pulsations which drop their felted rustles among metallic cymbals and
silvery breaths. A powerful sequence starts to activate. Its heavy
resonant keys surround some more agile sequences which flutter in a
delicious anarchy, shaping an unreal rhythm which is feeding of a
sequential mishmash to forms and tones mixed. On an abstruse rhythm,
"iniernal machines part one" continues its powerful and static
devilish ride with heavy sequences to made Redshift go pale. Sequences
which stagger with the grace of an elephant on acid, up until the
doors of its 2nd part, there where the ambiances toil to contain the
ceaseless stream of the stormy sequences which cry out their right of
destruction. Puny, the rhythm of "iniernal machines part two" shivers
and bends under the weight of the thunderous sequences which resound
and make trembles both the eardr ums than the subterranean corridors
and crash into an aggressive echo. The subdued choruses roam on this
powerful stationary rhythm which little by little gets out of breath
and takes refuge within the breaths of genesis of "a new dawn" and
those more orchestral and more liberators of "122212".
The 2nd portion of Return is more musical and more melodious,
caressing the rhythms and approaches of Tangerine Dream in the clogs
of Redshift. The intro of "Return" slides in a beautiful musical
panorama where sinuous waves caress the resonant curves of the biting
reverberations. The chthonian choruses always have precedence. They
breathe in gloomy mists. Blowing in horns, they clear particles and
hoops of metal which tear the astral veils to make roar the
intersidereal darkness and bring us to the first stammering of the
deaf pulsations from "radiocarbon part one". Except that the rhythm
carries away very early. Heavy and powerful, it strolls with
hesitation before biting the spine of zombie’s choirs and skipping
with strength and resonance in a structure of lead where the wandering
choirs are caressing it curvatures. The rhythm is heavy, powerful and
fluid. It’s flown over by synth solos as much strident as lyrical
which become infatuated with an infernal passion to a rhythm of steel.
A rhythm which evolves in fine permutations to be ennobling in the
sweetnesses and the ethereal solos of "beacon" before spurt even more
in "radiocarbon part two" which revives all the power of its first
part. "lighthouse" concludes this apocalyptic journey into the blows
of angelic and iridescent trumpets, looping the loop of Return with
the Dantesque breaths of "astral to disaster".
Return is a powerful journey in the analog lands of an EM which fed
the fantasies of the first fans of a music which transcends the
borders of imagination. Stephen Parsick succeeds an incredible tour de
force by sculpturing a music to thousand torments from completely
analog equipment where the somber psychedelicosmic ambiances bind
themselves in rhythms as heavy as powerful. Following to evolutive
musical patterns where the passion whips up furious sequences sculptor
of thunderous rhythms, Return is a real musical puzzle where every
sound and every note fit into 2 wonderful electronic acts displaying
all the genius and the know-how of the caustic man in black of EM.

Wollo, Erik - Silent Currents (cd) 10012

This gorgeously looking 6-panel 2CD digipak (photos by Erik Wøllo and
Chuck van Zyl, design by Sam Rosenthal), released in September 2011,
features on each CD a live radio performance at Star's End, legendary
radio show delivering ambient music in the Philadelphia area since
1976. Utilizing processed electric guitars and guitar synthesizers,
analog and digital synthesizers, Erik unfolds for all his listeners
beautifully floating and emerging atmospheres and zones with hints of
more active textures. Definitely colored with more deeper and droning
environments than we are used to hear on previous works of this highly
renowned Norwegian composer. Disc One documents Erik Wøllo's
live-to-air performance at April 27th, 2002, with 12 untitled
compositions. It graciously floates from deeply evocative and longing
pieces with expressive guitars ("Part 2", "Part 3", "Part 10") through
spiraling aerials ("Part 4", "Part 6") to more quiet and s erene
spacewashes ("Part 5"), from more monumental ("Part 1"), nearly
orchestral pieces ("Part 8") through rather tranquilizing ethereals
("Part 7", "Part 12") to hauntingly tribal-infused ("Part 11") or
heart beat groove perfumed piece ("Part 9"). Quite colorful batch of
compositions showcasing Erik's highly sensitive touch and craft to
fuse wonderful atmospheres with radiant guitar arrangements. Disc Two,
recorded at October 28th, 2007 and consisting of 14 sections, enters
the stage with abyssal intro, that later shifts into more mechanizing
and progressing level, yet still deeply evocative and hypnotic. "Part
2" remains on the darker route, while "Part 3" features minimal, but
highly effective and absorbing high-tech grooves, magnificent! "Part
4" dives into more organic realms with bubling heart beats and
expressive guitars, a truly subterranean sonic adventure! Slowed-down
grooves on "Part 5" attractively color the deeper drifts. Ethereal and
slightly dramatic "Part 6" evokes h ighly imaginative sky high odyssey
while "Part 7" is painted by some spooky cosmic soundscapes. This
sonic tension is easily relieved through "Part 8" with its more
breathing and colossal texture and yearning guitar riffs. Strongly
aerial and mesmerizing "Part 9" is gently enriched by some quiet
pulses on the background. High-tech grooves, organics and guitars are
the main flavors of the following three pieces, with "Part 12" being
the most expressive and melancholic. Watery sounds on "Part 13" soon
traverse into sequenced high-tech bubling trancey tune, a truly
submersible journey! "Part 14" with stratospheric ambience graciously
closes this exciting sonic adventure loaded with skillful arrangements
and superb performance merging electronics with guitars. Erik Wøllo
crosses on "Silent Currents" wider spectrum of moods, distinctively
blending darker and lighter elements into musically superior
masterpiece!!! An ambient/electronic ace at his finest!!!
