A one-hour contribution on radio BR2-Zündfunk to Manuel's E2-E4 by Ralf Summer
"It is the link between the Krautrock of the 70s and the electronic music of the 80s: the album "E2E4" by Manuel Göttsching from 1981. Based on only two chords it became the blueprint for Electronic Music and synth sounds in general."
Ralf speaks in his program from November 1, 2015 with Manuel about this legendary composition and what it meant for the development of music. And as background you can hear 1h long Göttsching's music:-)

Manuel Göttsching in ELEKTRO BEATS
On Wednesday, September 16, Olaf Zimmermann dedicated his entire program to Manuel and his music. The interview between him and Manuel was based on Christian Wheeldon's book DEEP DISTANCE - Manuel Göttsching's musical life which has been released this spring in UK. But Olaf spoke with Manuel also about his first concert in Australia, where he played with LA underground innovator Ariel Pink on bass and vocals, with multi-instrumentalist Shags Chamberlain and internationally renowned Australian artist Oren Ambarchi on drums (GER/USA/AUS). A landmark performance incorporating Manuel's legendary music from Ash Ra Tempel albums SCHWINGUNGEN and SEVEN UP as world premiere.
Another subject was Manuel's next concerts and plans for 2016, which are quite a few:-)
But now enjoy the entire program:
