A Tribute to Manuel Gottsching

Manuel Gottsching, the Ash Ra Tempel bandleader who went on to compose the electronic cornerstone album E2-E4, died on December 4. I have been a casual fan of Manuel Gottsching for a long time but I never really dug into his discography until the last few days with the news of his passing. Making this mix was a nice trip through Gottsching's music. I hope he is improvising with his buddy Klaus Schulze somewhere.

Tracklist is in the comments.

Thanks for providing this journey through his music. I only knew his music a little, but was familiar with the name. I see Michael Brooks as being the most obviously influenced by him.

I was only familiar with a few of his tracks myself when I started the mix. It was great to learn & listen. Thanks for checking in and commenting. Cheers!

This is superb. Only knew him by name but this is class. Now we know the origination of Sueno Latino, around the 31 minute mark

Nice mix, great tribute. I used to play Inventions loud, in the dark. My neighbour asked for a tape of it as it soothed his kids :)

That's awesome! I bet those kids turned out great. Cheers!

I enjoy making these tribute mixes but hate the reason for making them.
