The '70s were a fertile period for Manuel Göttsching. Having pioneered the kosmische guitar freakout with Ash Ra Tempel, he had embarked on a new phase by mid-decade. Inspired by minimalist composers Terry Riley, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass, Göttsching traded musical visions of outer space for trance-inducing meditations on inner space. Between 1974 and 1977, Göttsching pursued this new aesthetic on Inventions for Electric Guitar, Le Berceau de Cristal, New Age of Earth, and Blackouts, immersing himself in an electronic environment that often fused his signature guitar work with sequencers and synths. Although not released until 1991, Dream & Desire was recorded in 1977…

Formed by ex-Tangerine Dream member Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching and Hartmut Enke, Ash Ra Tempel was one of the pioneers of the progressive space-rock genre. Their debut-album seems to bee many people's favourite by the band, and I don`t blame them, as you won't get a more perfect space-atmosphere than the one you'll find here. The two tracks on the album is both VERY spacey pieces, but still very different from each other. "Amboss" opens quiet and relaxed, but soon bursts into a frenetic jam, highlighted with Göttsching`s excellent spacy guitar playing and Schulze's energetic drumming. It`s quite facinating how such an energetic and noisy piece still can be so atmospheric and relaxing. "Traummaschine" lives up to its title, and gives a clue about what Schulze later would do on his own albums. A very quiet and mysterious piece, with floating electronics and shimmering guitar. The whole album gives you a feeling of flying through space in a pyramid and visiting planets with ancient temples. Yes, this really is SPACE music. However, if you're looking for something more controlled and electronic kind of spacey atmospheres, start with one of the first Ashra albums from the late 70's instead.

Recorded live in February 1997, Club Quattro, Osaka and On-Air West, Tokyo, Japan. Ashra are a pioneering guitar and electronics outfit from Berlin. They were formerly known as Ash Ra Tempel, but when reduced to the solo project of Manuel Göttsching Virgin insisted on using the shortened name Ashra. Later the project became a proper band again, and has reformed numerous times.

Mark McGuire's albums are, amongst many other things, strong arguments for the album and for the stereo system. They're not just music; they're statements, and they demand to be experienced by the best sonic means available. They're throwbacks, not in style, but intent and effect. Put another way they don't make them like this anymore. The wall of sounds contained therein constitute a degree of ambition uncommon since the 70s heyday of McGuire's forebears Göttsching, Eno, Fripp. This is not laptop music.

Recorded in 1988, Walkin' the Desert struck a tasteful balance between Göttsching's experimental inclinations and a more mainstream techno sensibility. The album is an edited version of a performance given with Lutz Ulbrich in Berlin for the Desert Sounds event series (part of the Berlin: European Capital of Culture festival)…

With the addition of guitarist Lutz Ulbrich and drummer Harald Grosskopf, Ashra became a full-fledged band for the first time in several years. No surprise, then, that tracks like "Ice Train" and "Club Cannibal" are quite rock-oriented even with Göttsching's continued reliance on an assortment of synthesizers. Correlations still has some fine moments, though they're more tied to proto-synth pop than the space music of past Ashra classics…
