QUANTUM GATE Artist: Tangerine Dream
Tangerine Dream's new studio album QUANTUM GATE is due for release on September 29th 2017, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the band. In late summer 2014, Edgar Froese, Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane began to work on what was planned to be the first album of Tangerine Dream's Quantum Years - a new phase of the band that Edgar wanted to use to introduce a couple of substantial changes.
Consisting of himself, long term collaborator Thorsten Quaeschning (synths & musical director), violinist Hoshiko Yamane and new member Ulrich Schnauss (synths), the Quantum Years promised an updated, contemporary take on the band's trademark sound of the 70s and 80s: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. Non-musical ideas relating to the field of quantum physics and philosophy had inspired Edgar to attempt a translation of these concepts into music.
Very sadly however Edgar passed away in early 2015 - requesting that his wife, visual artist and TD's manager for the last 15 years, Bianca Froese-Acquaye would ensure that his vision for the Quantum Years would still be realized.
Throughout the last two years Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane therefore worked hard on achieving a result that would match Edgar's expectations - as well as the ones of TD's loyal fanbase.
It's worth noting that the compositions appearing on the album are not only based on theoretical concepts and ideas Edgar had outlined, but also on a large number of actual musical sketches that he luckily had already prepared during the initial phase of the band's reformation process.
Therefore, Quantum Gate is just as much a new beginning as it is a testament to Edgar's never-withering inspiration and ever-flowing creativity.
THE SESSIONS I Artist: Tangerine Dream
THE SESSIONS EP contains instant live compositions (about 60 min of music) from the current TD line-up Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane recorded from concerts in Budapest and Hong Kong in the beginning of this year. Enjoy these spontaneous and exceptional live tracks in good memory of the good old 70ies.
