30 Icons of Echoes #3: Tangerine Dream

Electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream are #3 of 30 Icons of Echoes.  In a special two-hour show, we’ll hear the Echoes Tangerine Dream Documentary as well as music from across the band’s career as well as solo projects. 50 years ago, Tangerine Dream began recording their electronic music in what was then West Berlin.  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 founder and last original member, Edgar Froese left the planet in 2015, but the group continues on with music he composed. 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 as well as comments from Moby, Steve Reich, Steve Roach, Robert Rich and Ian Boddy, to celebrate these Icons of Echoes.

See the complete list of The 30 Icons of Echoes.
Next week, the number 4 Icon, Lisa Gerrard and Dead Can Dance.
