Two for Tuesday: Tangerine Dream

ProgRock

Tangerine Dream was founded in 1967 when Edgar Froese, the group’s founder, moved to West Berlin to attend art school. He was the group’s one constant member until his death last year. I’ve mostly heard Tangerine Dream on “smooth jazz” stations, where their electronic sound fits in well with the New Age offerings. The band has over 100 studio albums, many of which were soundtrack albums for movies such as Risky Business and Firestarter. They have a page on Facebook, and they have a webpage.

Our first song today is “Tangram,” from the 1980 album of the same name.

Our second song is the title track from 1976’s Stratosfear.

Tangerine Dream, your Two for Tuesday, May 3, 2016.


This is the last entry in the “Progressive Rock” series. Obviously, there are many more acts that I didn’t cover, and you’ll probably be seeing more of them as time goes on.

    1. I have to be in the mood to listen to New Age or electronic music, but they were one of the better ones. Germany seems to turn out a lot of electronic players, don’t they?
