surprised that there's been no chatter about this, so for those not in the know:http://thegatherings.org/manuelgottsching.html
as i live right outside nyc, i'll be attending both his friday night performance (which is free) as well as his gathering debut on saturday. i've been a longtime enthusiast & admirer of gottsching since his initial ash ra tempel days & up to & through his solo work. 'e2-e4' remains a benchwater mark in so many genres (ambient, minimalism, proto-techno) that it's every bit as fresh, innovative, & exciting today as it was when it was recorded 27 years ago. gottsching will be debuting that recording on friday; his saturday performance in philly will apparently feature pieces from 'die mulde' (an excellent work, btw), 'blackouts', and others from his back catalog. i've been awaiting this for months; one way or the other, this looks to be a seminal event for '08, at the very least hopefully one of the more memorable shows of the last clutch of years.
anyone else here plan on attending?
