The band Tangerine Dream, founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in West Berlin, was formative for the genre of electronic music and, with albums like Phaedra and Rubycon, they laid the foundation for music styles such as Ambient and Trance. Now, at a time when synthesizers and sequencers are being rediscovered in music and pop culture, the exhibition looks at the band's electronic beginnings, fast-forwarding through their 50-year history.
With the help of photographs, previously unpublished articles and video clips from the 1970s, this free exhibition reveals, above all, London's special role in the progression and development of Tangerine Dream. Original synthesizers from the early days, as well as music on vinyl and cassette, all invite you to share in an analogue trip through an important chapter of electronic music history.
