AUG 2 / Eye Filmmuseum
Tangerine Dream's impact to the electronic music world is unquestionable, and to have them play at Dekmantel Festival 2018 is one of the greatest honours to bestow us. Join this unique concert at Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ by these pioneers now — Single Concert Tickets are still available!
Also, we're thrilled to announce that we will screen Tangerine Dream's 'Revolution Of Sound' film at EYE Filmmuseum during Dekmantel Festival 2018's Thursday program. A must-see for all fans and music heads.
Edgar Froese, band leader of Tangerine Dream and pioneer of electronic music, was on a lifelong mission to find the ultimate sound. His constant quest took him and his fellow band members to worldwide success, all the way to the Hollywood studios in Los Angeles. At his death in January 2015, Edgar Froese leaves a legacy of 48 years of music history. The film shows previously unreleased footage shot by the band leader himself: For the first time, we see the band backstage, on tour in Europe and the US, at photoshoots with Jim Rakete or on holiday at the seaside. Records and interviews with his wife Bianca Froese-Acquaye, with band members, close associates and fellow artists map the unique history of Tangerine Dream: a tribute to the musician Edgar Froese and the era of electronic music.
Bianca Froese-Acquaye (co-producer of the film, Froese's widow and manager of the band for more than 15 years) will perform a short reading from Froese's autobiography "Tangerine Dream - Force Majeure" before the start of the film. The book was an important basis for the film as the film itself contains many quotes.
