When he was a little boy he listened to Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac. He began his musical education in typical fashion by learning to play the guitar, only to abandon it for a while to play percussion in a rock band he set up at the age of 15.
Nowadays Manuel Göttsching is a most important world class musician. He is a legendary guitarist who significantly influenced the German electronic music scene. While working in the bands Ash Ra Tempel and Ashra, as well as performing as a soloist, he appeared on stage with such stars as Tangerine Dream or Kraftwerk. For years he performed with Klausem Schulze both at the beginning of his career in 1970s and much later at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries.
During this show in Szczecin in the Symphony Hall, the audience will hear pieces from the 1975 record ‘Inventions for Electric Guitar’, which was the artist's first solo album featuring electronic music. This time Manuel Göttsching will perform with a Danish guitar sextet from the band Cirklen.
