Esoteric German musician and composer Manuel Göttsching performs his 1976 Ash Ra Tempel record New Age of Earth for the first time ever in its entirety.

As the leader of the groups Ash Ra Tempel and Ashra in the 1970s and 80s, as well through his solo work, Manuel Göttsching’s experimental style has been hugely influential worldwide. His extensive body of work traverses krautrock, electronic, ambient, new age, minimalism, psychedelic rock and experimental.

New Age of Earth has been ranked among the greatest ambient albums of all time. This is space music: clean, crisp electronics awash with dreamy synths that feels like floating through a slowly shifting atmosphere as the melodies gently unfurl.

Presented by RE-TEXTURED, a multi venue, multi-sensory festival for London and the UK. The festival combines experimental electronic music, modernist and industrial architecture and innovative lighting installations for an arresting visual and sonic experience.

This event will start at the advertised time and running times will be confirmed closer to the event.
