- Claudio Mate`s tribute to Manuel Göttsching out now on vinyl !!!
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)." part

/ 20-Jan-2008/23-Jan-2008/03-March-2008] Manuel
Göttsching's tribute-concert to Mr. Sommerfeld
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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! ***
parts taken from the officiall press information MG.ART 2008

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." (http://sunshine.dubtribe.com/metamorphose/)
Göttsching`s famous "E2
E4" is now (25-August-2006) re-released (CD) on the japanese

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.
