"M2G4" - Claudio Mate`s tribute to Manuel Göttsching out now on vinyl !!!

"After a first contact via myspace, Manuel was
really wondered by Claudio's idea and, after tons
of emails, they met in Berlin where Gottsching himself
gave to Claudio the right energy to follow and finish
this project as well.
Finally after four years M2G4 is here... Tribute mix
by Claudio Mate is a perfect journey in deep, dark,
emotional, emotive lands within an amazing epic
ending with guitars played by Luca Petrosino
(an Italian guitar talent)."

10 questions to Manuel Göttsching with exciting and interesting answers.
Interview is was made August 2011 - follow the link and enjoy it !!! Funky Jeff`s blog

Dear Con, have a good trip to Eternity! R.I.P.
Jules Perrin, a french film maker, has dedicated a video to Conrad Schnitzler, he filmed him
at his home and edited it in Paris. Enjoy this nice souvenir.
In an interview from 2007 Conny speaks about music and musicians.
Manuel is also mentioned, please scrall down to his name.
By the way, it was Conny's old VW bus which Manuel bought 1970 after he completed
18 years old and has made his driving licence. This was not only his first car, but it became
the very essential band bus of Ash Ra Tempel.

In co-operation with MG.ART and simultaneous memory of Conrad Schnitzler.

"In the shadow of Germany's turbulent history their exists the

The Count and the Comrade illuminates the unique lives
of Count Carl-Hans von Hardenberg, one of the rebellious
officers behind »Operation Valkyrie«, the plot that should

    Manuel Göttsching's tribute-concert to Mr. Sommerfeld /Berlin 10-Feb-2008

  • official Flyer

    To give Mr. Sommerfeld the last honor Manuel Göttching will personally present
    THE SOUNDS OF SILENTS in February in Berlin, with Mr. Sommerfeld's family, friends and the
    film crew attending.
    After the screening Manuel Göttsching will give one of his rare concerts, accompanying a
    silent movie himself: SCHLOSS VOGELÖD (The Haunted Castle) by F.W. Murnau,
    one of Mr. Sommerfeld's favorite film directors.

    Programme of the evening:
    - THE SOUND OF SILENTS, a film about Mr. Sommerfeld from 2006, 80 min.
    - Manuel Göttsching performs live to F.W.Murnau's silent movie THE HAUNTED CASTLE
    (Schloss Vogelöd, 1921), 80 min. -
    Reception Sunday, 10th February at 7 pm
    UFA-FABRIK, Viktoriastr. 10-18, 12105 Berlin/Tempelhof, U-6, right at the U-Bahnhof Ullsteinstr.
    As the seats are very limited we recommend a ticket reservation at: vorbestellung@ufafabrik.de

    The idea of this event is to demonstrate the beginnings of music in film with the screening of the
    film on Mr. Sommerfeld and with Manuel Göttsching's performance to show the development
    of music. The Ufa Fabrik, connected with German film history as the UFA Studios, is today an
    international cultural center: where Willy Sommerfeld used to accompany films and
    Manuel recorded his album CORRELATIONS :-)
    So some good reasons to join us for the hommage and visit this very special place!

reputation of the famous original!

NEW BOOTLEG with E2 E4 samples: Timmy Regisford - Get deep
The american DJ released on a unknown US-label a 12" vinyl bootleg: GET DEEP (TWL001)
"Timmy Regisford - allegedly - re-tunes Roland Clark's "I Get Deep" vocal with bits of Carl Craig's "Sandstorms" and
Paperclip People's "Remake" (and its source, Manuel Göttsching's "E2-E4") for a enormous, 100% solid club banger
that will appeal to old school techno pill - headsgarage aficionados and Balearic crusaders alike!
The B-side instrumental mix removes Clark's input entirely for a proper Detroitian megamix."

A short statemant about Manuel Göttsching @ Metamorphose Festival 06 (Japan):
"The most exciting thing about being at Metamorphose for me was the simple fact that Manuel Göttschling was going to
perform E2E4 live for the very first time. E2E4 is a classic, an anthem of ambience and beauty from the days of the Paradise Garage.
A composition which has set the bar for all electronic music well beyond where anyone has since been able to reach. It is also the
background sample for the techno classic 'Sueńo Latino' and other rare and important house records too. We arrived in the middle of
Göttschling's sound check. There he was, this elderly fellow in a shirt, with thick glasses, a keyboard, a guitar and a laptop.
It was all displayed on an L shaped working desk. Germans and Japanese were running around making sure everything was correct,
and Mr. Göttschling was seated, looking absentmindedly into the darkness beyond the edge of the stage."

Manuel Göttsching`s famous "E2 E4" is now (25-August-2006) re-released (CD) on the
japanese label ARCANGELO (ARC 7168).
Not remastered and also with no additions.
Released in a special paper sleeve package with OBI. Very hard to find hear in Europe
- or for very high prices. Also available a special Promo Box and a E2 E4 T-Shirt.

The mexican Radio station UABC will broadcast on 05th of September 2006 (Thuesday)
in their radio show: Rock Evolution (08pm to 9pm) excerpts from E2 E4 live.

  • New CD + DVD Release
    After the two successful concerts in Braunschweig with the new music for the classic silent movie
    "Schloss Vogelöd/The Haunted Castle", the release on CD and DVD is being prepared.
    At the moment, we hope that the remastered movie will be released with the new music accompanying on the DVD.
    It is not yet decided if the live material will be taken for the release. However, there are several possibilities for the
    CD release.
    On the other hand it is certain that the CD will only contain the longer characteristical parts of the movie score,
    maybe in slightly reworked form (in contrast to the concerts).
    In short, these are only possibilities at the moment. There is no release date as well.
