UK PREMIERE

Q&A UPDATE - We're delighted to announce that director Margarete Kreuzer and Edgar's widow, Bianca Froese-Acquaye, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film!

Bianca will do a short reading from Edgar Froese's autobiography before the screening!
"Tangerine Dream is science fiction!", declares band leader Edgar Froese who passed away in January, 2015 aged 70. For almost fifty years he and his band explored sound and its effect on our emotions.

This film about one of Germany’s first electronic bands kicks off with the young Berlin musicians who were as inspired by the space age of the 1960s, with its rocket launchings and visions of the future, as they were by their own heartbeat, on which Froese also based compositions. Aided by the Moog and other synthesisers Froese (and various band members) revolutionised popular music. His explorations took him into the worlds of classical, new and film music. He preferred to visualise moods rather than create clearly structured songs. Directors such as Michael Mann and Paul Brickman discuss their intensive collaborations with Froese that produced some of the most unusual soundtracks of the 1980s, for films such as Risky Business (Paul Brickman, 1983) or Near Dark (Kathryn Bigelow, 1987). A fascinating blend of amateur footage, interviews with band members, relatives, friends and colleagues such as Jean-Michel Jarre that creates a comprehensive portrait of an artistic pioneer.

Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.

REVOLUTION OF SOUND DVD artwork released


Dear „REVOLUTION OF SOUND“-Community,
You're absolutely right, it's going to take a long time for us to serve all the stakeholders in the project and thank you all the supporters. Every day we work to satisfy all needs as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it is not always in our hands to speeding up this process. In a project of this size, there are many different interests, all of which must be served. This means a lot of work and coordination. Therefore, we are very pleased to present the official artwork of the DVD today. This step is one of the last, before the final production of the DVD. So we are, in a good mood to be able to send the film to everyone involved in the next three weeks.
Thank you for the great support of the whole community. Only as a group we were able to create this movie. We look forward to completing this project as a community.
Best regards,
the Team of TAG/TRAUM Filmproduktion GmbH & Co. KG
