Manuel Gottsching hasn't released as many albums in recent decades as he did earlier in his career but when he does release something new, it's always something special. Manuel's latest release was recorded live in Feburary 2006 during an excellent solo concert near Japan's Mount Fuji. Manuel performed the entire concert alone accompanied by stunning computer visuals by a Japanese graphic artist and he also dug into his back catalog coming up with new arrangements of classic material.
The album opens with "Sunrain" which was originally from the 1976 classic "New Age of Earth". The familiar hypnotic sequencer pattern is already in place however on this new version, Manuel takes it in a slightly different direction and extends the piece to nearly 15-minutes.
"Saint and Sinner" is a more recent piece which was originally heard on the 2004 release "Concert For Murnau". This laid back piece is taken a step up from its studio counterpart as Manuel adds a bluesy Clapton-esque guitar lead that wasn't there before.
"Trunky Groove" is a brand new piece composed for this concert and is a showcase for the psychedelic music style that was the norm for Manuel back in his very early days in Ash Ra Tempel. A techno-style rhythm is accompanied by a long drone and intense orchestrations before giving way to an effects-drenched guitar solo.
"Die Mulde" is a 20-minute excerpt from Manuel's long-form 1997 piece of the same name. It begins with the "Die Spiegel" section of the piece and shifts into the closing "Zerfluss" movement. As with "Saint and Sinner", Manuel adds a guitar lead which wasn't in the original version.
Finally, to close the album, we have yet another arrangement of the classic "Shuttlecock" which originally is from the 1978 masterwork "Blackouts".

Recorded live at a gig at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan. Five well-written tracks, with a duration of seventy-two minutes composed by the Ash Ra Tempel founder, frontman and main player - Manuel Gottsching. Pretty much as mind-elevating as his 'E2-E4' effort (see my review). Tunes here I dug the most were easy enough to spot - the pop-oriented (sort of) fourteen-minute "Trucky Groove" and the twenty-minute epic "Die Mulde". A good pick.

Manuel Gittsching's music really is addictive. Most recordings have a strong beat, very long plays, great to listen to while walking on the treadmill. This DVD is one of the best. I am buying all his offerings, bit by bit, as they tend to be somewhat costly. But I love them (except Schwangungen...too lyrical).
