With support from Ariel Pink.
Krautrock legend and founding member of Ash Ra Tempel, Manuel Göttsching will revisit and rework landmark pieces from his discography as part of Convergence 2017. The concert takes place on 22 March at London’s Barbican Centre.
For the first portion of the show, the guitarist and composer will give a rare solo performance of his enormously influential 1984 album E2-E4.
For part two, Göttsching will be joined by Ariel Pink, Oren Ambarchi and Shags Chamberlain for a performance by The Ash Ra Tempel Experience, performing original titles from 1972’s Schwingungen and Seven Up.
The Ash Ra Tempel Experience with this line-up debuted in Melbourne in 2015 and a live album from that show is planned for early 2017.
Earlier this year, cosmic disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli remixed Manuel Göttsching’s legendary ’70s krautrock group Ashra for a limited release titled Volcano Extravaganza.
