Founded in Berlin in 1967, Tangerine Dream’s groundbreaking 1974 record Phaedra became an electronic music milestone. Since then, the group has released more than 100 albums, including recordings that have played a pivotal role in the development of Krautrock and the Berlin School of electronic music, as well as recognizable film soundtracks that would go on to influence countless cinema composers. Tangerine Dream’s early catalogue was influential in the development of electronic dance music as well as ambient, new age, and experimental genres.
Over 50 years later, the Thorsten Quaeschning-led group continues to push the boundaries of electronic music with their captivating sounds and memorable concerts at Dekmantel, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, London’s Barbican Hall, and many more. Each Tangerine Dream performance ends with a real-time composition which can last from 20 minutes to two hours.
