TANGERINE DREAM announce new concert




NEW: NOV 9:  CONCERT:  Tangerine Dream 'Mira Digital Arts Festival',Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, Spain.


Tangerine Dream

Undoubtedly one of the most pioneering electronic groups of the past 50 years, Tangerine Dream have released over one hundred records since their formation in West Berlin in 1967, creating thousands of hypnotic synth patterns and soundscapes in the process. Following the death in 2015 of the band’s legendary founder, Edgar Froese, the remaining members (Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss) vowed to continue working together to realise Froese’s musical visions.

Their most recent album “Quantum Gate” was released in September 2017 to wide acclaim. Coinciding with the project’s 50-year anniversary, the album is based on ideas and musical sketches by Edgar Froese and was completed by the remaining members of the band.

Together with live visual work by British visual artist Patrick Dunn, their performance at MIRA will mark the Spanish premiere of their “Quantum of Electronic Evolution” show. A rare opportunity to get fully immersed in their latest creations as well as their great works from the past.

Tangerine Dream - Identity Proven Matrix (live studio performance)



Tangerine Dream complete their Quantum Gate album with the Quantum Key EP as a new double CD release - http://found.ee/QuantumGateKey This new live recording of "Identity Proven Matrix" was filmed at the band's studio in Berlin where the band have been gearing up for their European shows (more to be announced) 
13 April - Halle/Saale - Haendelsaal - DE 
14 April - Dresden - Kulturpalast/Philharmonie - DE 
23 April - London - Union Chapel - UK - SOLD OUT!! 
24 April - London - Union Chapel with special guest Richard Barbieri - UK

01 Aug - Amsterdam - Dekmantel Festival - NL - SOLD OUT SOON!! 
04 + 05 Aug - O.Z.O.R.A. Festival - HU 12 Aug - Helsinki - Flow Festival - FI 

The Quantum Key EP preceded Quantum Gate and both delivered an updated, contemporary development of their trademark sound: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. The Quantum Years material began as a concept and series of musical sketches by Froese before he passed away in 2015. Remaining band members Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane worked together to realize Edgar's visions and expectations of a conceptual body of work that attempts to translate quantum physics and philosophy into music. Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic and progressive music since their formation in West Berlin, 1967. Inspiring genres, musicians and other art forms, from The Future Sound of London to Porcupine Tree, the widely popular TV show Stranger Things (for which their music also featured in) to seminal video game Grand Theft Auto V (for which they helped to write the soundtrack).
