3 stars Next to his work with Ashra Tempel /Ashra, the guitarist Manuel Gottsching has published a few personal efforts, unofficially started with the seminal « inventions » in 1974. This second and official Gottsching's album in solo is in the direct vibe than « Inventions » and future Ashra recordings as Blackout, Correlations.It consists of long meditative / electronic tracks with real emotional & spacey "ambient" guitar sounds. It also features numerous sequencer / repetitive pulses, flowing in the background to accompany Gottsching's dominant guitar passages. Just as the solo production of ancient krautrockers (Peter Baumann & Edgar Froese from TD, Michael Hoenig from Agitation Free) the guitarist explores one more time the power of synthesisers, voluntary creating dreamy landscapes manoeuvred with a sense of improvisation and structure (the spacey themes are developed by hypnotic, endless electronic "patterns"). Not a standard but an original & contemplative musical adventure that can easily convince fans of Ashra.
