Tangerine Dream

Origin: Germany

Genres: Avant-garde, Electronica

Seminal electronic music ensemble Tangerine Dream was founded by multi-instrumentalist Edgar Froese in 1967. Praised by British DJ John Peel, their 1973 release Atem helped the band secure a contract with Virgin Records. Making good use of Moog synthesizers and sequencers, they followed with a string of acclaimed albums, including Phaedra (1974) and Rubycon (1976). In 1977, their mostly instrumental works attracted the attention of Hollywood. Tangerine Dream would go on to compose some 30 film scores during the 1980s. Despite frequent personnel turnovers and label changes, Froese and co. recorded and toured extensively throughout the 1990s and 2000s. In recent years, a host of young electronic artists have acknowledged TD's on-going influence.
