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
The exhibition Tangerine Dream: Zeitraffer at the Barbican Centre reveals London's key role in the international breakthrough of the band Tangerine Dream during the 1970s. From January 16th till May 2nd 2020 at the Barbican Library - City of London Libraries #tangerinedreamzeitraffer
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With the help of photographs, previously unpublished articles and video clips from the 1970s, the exhibition reveals, above all, London's special role in the progression and development of Tangerine Dream.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.
Original synthesizers from the early days, as well as music on vinyl and cassette, all invite you to share in an analogue trip through an important chapter of electronic music history.
