Tangerine Dream's 50th

Weekend listeners travel through 50 years of Tangerine Dream. The iconic German electronic band began recording their electronic music in what was then West Berlin, releasing their first album, Electronic Meditation in June of 1970.  Founded by Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream has epitomized the electronic age of music, recording over 150 albums of synthesized compositions.  Their film soundtracks include “Sorcerer” “Thief,” “Risky Business,” and “Legend.” Tangerine Dream’s founder and last original member, left the planet in 2015, but the group continues on with music he composed. On Echoes, we draw upon over a dozen interviews with the Dream members past and present including Froese, Peter Baumann, Christoph Franke, Klaus Schulze, Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss and many others to celebrate 50 years since the release of their debut album, Electronic Meditation. In addition to our documentary, all 2 hours will be filled with the music of Tangerine Dream and solo work by past and present Dream members.
