Please welcome on Friday, 19th July: TANGERINE DREAM. One of the biggest icons of electronic music, Tangerine Dream has painted stadium-sized soundscapes for over half a century. Founded and led by Edgar Froese, the German group has pioneered Ambient and Krautrock (or ”Kosmische Musik”), released over 100 studio albums and created over sixty film scores.
Following Froese’s passing in 2015, the group’s remaining members have continued to fulfill the founder’s musical vision both through live performances and on the 2017 studio album Quantum Gate (nominated for the Prog Music Awards 2018). Froese’s widow Bianca Froese-Acquaye is working closely with the band and upholding her husband’s legacy.
Tangerine Dream have their finger on the pulse of the time: A younger generation is discovering their soundtrack compositions through the world-wide hit computer game GRAND THEFT AUTO V (GTA V) and their exciting musical appearances in Netflix series like Black Mirror – Bandersnatch or Stranger Things. Tangerine Dream has always surprised their audiences with so-called instant compositions; live improvisations like TD did in the 70’s – besides their usual repertoire of classic tracks. In 2018 a number of festival appearances at Dekmantel Amsterdam, Flow Helsinki, Ozora Hungary, MIRA Barcelona have added to a growing audience for their unique electronic improvisations.
We are thrilled that TANGERINE DREAM will be part of the Night Of The Prog Experience 2019 and be prepared to hear and see a one-off session during their set!
