Men and Machines present Manuel Göttsching LIVE - Sat 11th Dec at Stereo, Glasgow

Men and Machines present Manuel Göttsching LIVE

It would be an understatement to say we are delighted to announce the first ever Scottish concert by German composer and multi-instrumentalist Manuel Göttsching. Manuel is a pioneer of electronic music who has been recording and performing for over four decades. He was hugely influential in the German Kosmische Musik scene, and he has had a profound influence on the development of house, techno and electronic music in general.

Manuel was the leader of Ash Ra Temple/Ashra, who together with bands like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Can, contributed to the development of the pioneering German Kosmische Musik scene in the 1970s and 80s. They recorded some of the most amazing pieces of early experimental electronic music and during this time Manuel built a reputation as one of the most important guitarists of the era.
