They were and are together with Kraftwerk the German Synthesizer Pioneers.
Their name comes along with their revolution of elektronic music in the early 70s and several US blockbuster movie soundtracks like, „Thief“ with James Caan, „The Sorcerer“ with Roy Scheider and many more. 7 Grammy nominees, several awards and over 70 million sold records made Tangerine Dream to a trademark of elektronic music!
After 50 successful years Tangerine Dream seamed to come to an end, when founder and mastermind EDGAR FROESE passed away in early 2015. But even before his death he already had the vision to open a new chapter for the band and he began to work on a new album with a younger line up.
THORSTEN QUESCHNING, longterm member of TD is now bandleader and has with ULRICH SCHNAUSS a in the elektro scene well reputated artist next to him. Violinist HOSHIKO YAMANE is completing the line up.
The new album „QUANTUM GATE“ (released 2017 on KSOPE), hit the European Dance & Elektrocharts and proved successfully that TANGERINE DREAM are aming on a younger audience.
As a result they were invited to some of Europe´s biggest Elektro Festival, such as Amsterdam, Dekmantel Festival – Olso, Oya-Festival – Göteburg, Way Out Festival - Helsinki , Flow Festival, a.s.o…
Based on thier extraordinary song catalogue out of 50 years, an extraordinary light and video show, Tangerine Dream takes the audience with them and make them up to standing ovations with their „Real Time Composition“ improvised session at the end of every show.
Tangerine Dream are back, younger than ever and THEY are an Icon brand !!
