Electronic Beat Studio memorial to be unveiled in Berlin
The well-known film music composer and multiple Oscar award winner Hans Zimmer donates a memorial plaque in reminiscence of the Electronic Beat Studio.
It will be unveiled on Friday, 04 December 2020 at 14:00 CET in front of the Nelson Mandela school (Pfalzburger Straße 30) in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.
Back in the years 1968 to 1984, the Electronic Beat Studio was located in the cellar of this building.
This studio was the creative nucleus of the "Berlin school of electronic music", founded by Konrad Latte, director of the Berlin barock orchestra
and led by the Swiss avantgarde composer Thomas Kessler. Bands like Agitation Free, Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra
Tempel as well as solo artists like Manuel Göttsching, Klaus Schulze und Michael Hoenig have announced this music
throughout the whole world.

The CD release with a bonus DVD has meanwhile been released as well, including for the first time some original video material from the soundcheck and most parts of the concert.
The first reviews are already online (in Russian and in German). You will find them on the press review page.
More reviews will be placed there as soon as we get to know about them. By the way: In 2017, Igor Malzeff did a video interview
with Manuel in his studio (in English!).
