Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream is a German group that specializes in electronic music (the members of the band strongly disagree with this view). It was founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese[?] who had been studying painting and sculpture.

The genesis of the group began when he was invited to give several private concerts at which music mixed with literature, painting, early forms of multimedia and more. Only the absurdest ideas were able to gather any attention at these gatherings. From this, Edgar developed the phrase "in the absurd often lies what is artistically possible". Various members of the group came and went, but the direction of the music continued to be inspired by the Surrealists at the beginning of the century. In several international reviews the music of TD was described as an "unreal soundtrack" to an "unreal, unknown life", a life in which all events happened at "the same time and the same place". Simultaneity.

Between 1980-1983, Tangerine Dream did scores for 12 Hollywood movies.
