TANGERINE DREAM

Happy Birthday, dear Edgar! Thank you for the music, thank you for making our life brighter! You once said: "My problem is getting it started into something. The sound and rhythms I hear are so strange, I’m never able to cover it the way I hear it. That is why I’m searching for something new that gets close to what I hear. If I tell you about blue metal, it doesn’t mean anything to you, but I hear it. What’s blue metal? What’s iron wood? What’s a gold cloud? There is no other way of describing what I hear. That’s the way you hunt for new sounds, new instruments, new rhythms. But you can’t drift away too far so other people can’t follow you anymore. That’s the other problem.” We will always remember you, keep you in our hearts. Yours, Tangerine Dream & TD team

It’s been a long ride with the ever-pulsating brain at the centre of the Ultraworld we know as The Orb. Alex Paterson has steered his cosmic vehicle through several decades of sound, so much so that their ineffable mix of influences has become a genre unto itself.

Tangerine Dream: Zeitraffer - A Barbican Music Library Exhibition

The exhibition at the Barbican is temporarily closed until further notice due to new UK Government advice on Coronavirus/Covid-19. We will keep you updated about a reopening on our channels. https://www.barbican.org.uk/your-visit/general-info/coronavirus-advice

Thu 16 Jan — Sat 2 May 2020 Barbican Library, London, UK

The band Tangerine Dream, founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in West Berlin, was formative for the genre of electronic music, and, with albums like Phaedra and Rubycon, they laid the foundation for music styles such as Ambient or Trance. Now, at a time when synthesizers and sequencers are being rediscovered in music and pop culture, the exhibition looks at the band's electronic beginnings, fast-forwarding through their 50-year history.

With the help of photographs, previously unpublished articles and video clips from the 1970s, the exhibition reveals, above all, London's special role in the progression and development of Tangerine Dream. Personalities such as BBC Radio DJ John Peel and Virgin founder Richard Branson were key figures for the band's international breakthrough, and their resulting entry into the Hollywood film music business.
