+++OFFICIAL Tangerine Dream Newsletter November 2016+++


Hi Guys,
Today we have some interesting news for you concerning the cosmos of Tangerine Dream:

01. TD DOCUMENTARY STILL ONLINE @ ARTE
Many of you have already watched the new Tangerine Dream documentary "Sounds from another World" on ARTE TV on 25th November. The response so far has been overwhelming, predominantly positive and many of you got 'goosebumps' seeing a very young Edgar and other band members at that time. Even people who didn’t know much about Tangerine Dream commented that the documentary was very exciting for them as they didn't know anything about the historical/cultural meaning of electronic music and the band's strong input. They expressed astonishment about the revolution of sound in the sixties & seventies, which they weren't aware of. We think, a documentary about Tangerine Dream was long overdue and it can contribute to the fact, that young people will receive further information about that revolutionary time.

Of course we know that the documentary is way too short (TV format), that's why we plan to release a longer version in spring 2017 (DVD format with English subtitles at least or even dubbed). Your crowdfunding contributions & support will be a good investment in a piece of contemporary history.

Thanks to the director, Margarete Kreuzer, and Bianca Froese-Acquaye who both were attracted to the idea of creating a film about Tangerine Dream and who worked closely for its realization. Margarete met Edgar in 2013 for the first time and they got along with each other very well. Edgar was convinced by Margarete's previous work and agreed instantly to the proposed documentary on TD. We think he would have been pleased with the result.
Those who missed the film on TV can watch it for another 25 days in the ARTE library (in German or French):
______________________________________________________________________
02. NEW RELEASES IN DECEMBER 2016
We are very happy to release the third EP from THE QUANTUM YEARS (after MALA KUNIA and QUANTUM KEY) and this time it will be a DOUBLE EP called PARTICLES.

(EP or "CUPDISC" as Edgar once named it because he associated the playing time of this music CD format with enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in a relaxed atmosphere while listening to the music...:-)

On PARTICLES you can hear varied live & studio material and it also includes a cover version of the STRANGER THINGS - MAIN THEME, which has already received huge attention by the media. (See link in our shop.)

PARTICLES (2CD/EP) can be ordered in our EASTGATE shop, please see more information on this cupdisc here: https://www.ssl-id.de/edgarfroese.de/shop/products.php…
RELEASE DATE: 15 DEC 2016
________________________________________________
Every year we receive inquiries by fans about offering a calendar. After the success of the calendar "THE ART OF HOW TO DREAM" last year, we decided to release another TWO:

1. "THE EDGAR MOMENT" – containingbeautiful, interesting, private and mostly unseen photos of Edgar
2. "RHYTHM OF BEING" - containingBianca Froese-Acquaye's acrylic paintings on glossy paper, a selection of paintings beyond her Dante series....
The limited edition calendars can be ordered in our EASTGATE shop: https://www.ssl-id.de/edgarfroese.de/shop/index.php
RELEASE DATE: 15 DEC 2016
_________________________________________________
03. CONCERTS IN 2017
The first concerts - TANGERINE DREAM - THE QUANTUM YEARS - we would like to announce for 2017 will take place in the following cities:

- BUDAPEST (Hungary), 28th JANUARY 2017, A38 SHIP and in
- HONG KONG (China), 26th FEBRUARY 2017, AC HALL

04. IN MEMORY OF EDGAR FROESE - EVENT IN BERLIN - 21 Jan 2017
Bianca Froese-Acquaye will once again organise an event for her husband Edgar Froese in memory of the second anniversary of his death to be held in January 2017.

This event will take place in Berlin, once again at the BERLINER FESTSPIELHAUS and will be a mixture of music, art, readings, lecture, tombola, exhibition etc.

More details will follow in a timely manner. However the access to this event is limited to 200 people, so all people who would like to come are warmly invited and can register from today on.
Just send a simple mail to: memory-eastgate@gmx.com
_________________________________________________
05. FINAL RELEASE DATE OF "FORCE MAJEURE" AUTOBIOGRAPHY
First of all we would like to apologize very much for the following unpleasant news: Unfortunately we have to inform you that a release of the book this year will not be possible as many legal questions are still in a state of uncertainty at this stage.

HOWEVER we can at least give you a final, a VERY FINAL RELEASE DATE, which will be: 6th OF JUNE, 2017. This is the date of EDGAR's birthday and the year marks Tangerine Dream's 50th year of existence. A perfect date for the release of the autobiography "Force Majeure."

Of course, as mentioned before, everybody who participated in the pre-sale and that doesn't want to wait for the book until June will be refunded immediately. We understand you very well and have no problems with it.

Nevertheless we hope that the majority will stick to their order as a lot of money has already been invested in the English translation, layout and much more. We really hope that such a difficult situation will never ever occur again - that the initiator and protagonist of the book dies in the middle of its development - which naturally complicated its release enormously. You, the fans, have been extremely patient, for which we would like to express our huge gratitude. Your patience was an act of attachment to Edgar, his band and the music. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Peter Baumann - ROMANCE 76 & TRANS HARMONIC NIGHTS reissues

An approximate comparison between the recent Peter Baumann re-issues by ESOTERIC REACTIVE and BUREAU B:

Sound quality wise - very little in it. Perhaps the Bureau B discs sound slightly more 'rounded'/musical and with a tad less hiss? I listened to these on headphones (AKG K451) using my old Technics portable CD player - so nothing high end by any stretch of the imagination. By its nature 'Romance 76' is more hissy and both issues reveal the limitations of the equipment available to Peter at that time. Both BB discs also run 4 seconds longer (but frankly who cares?). No big issues with either of the issues I think. (Esoteric Reactive or Bureau B).

Artwork wise BB have ruined the sleeve of TTN, way too blue, contrast blown out . The ER version is nearer to the look of the LP but looks cropped on the right hand side (comparing it against the BB version). 

Sleeve notes are all solid (ER by Andy G, BB by Jan Casagrande - who's notes are also repeated in German). The ER versions have 16 page inserts with some scans I sent them (not always reproduced that well, but they're in nevertheless and ALL relevant to the release), BB are 8 page (well 4 with 2 sides). BB drop the ball with some of the photo labels - one of which is pure nonsense, plus some aren't relevant to the release - why add photos of PB in 1976 in a release from 1979? Sorry can't comment on the artwork on R76 as I never bought the original LP. BB looks too RED to me, ER more yellow. BB have buggered about with the rear text font on THN, which rubs me up the wrong way. Depends what you want from a re-issue really. One last thing, ESOTERIC are Jewel cases whereas Bureau B are card digi-paks with sleeve notes that slot into a flap on the inside of the gatefold design - you decide which will last longer.

ps. BB has a typo on the rear cover of R76 track one is shown as BICENTENNIAL PRESENTATION, whereas ER show it as BICENTENNIAL PRESENT - I can't even remember which one is right, but ViTN says BB is wrong.

pps. Will also have to check RM76 or THN against the original Virgin issues as Alan Freeman said that the new (ER) version (and therefore also possibly the BB version) has a remix on it rather than the original

STRATOSFEAR - 40th anniversary 1976 - 2016


Brian Cooke in CREATIVE REVIEW: “We only ever got one award, best album cover design from Melody Maker, for this,” he says, holding up Tangerine Dream's 1976 album Stratosfear, pointing out the different images and processes that make up the abstract image. Together, Cooke and Key experimented with dark room techniques, pioneering the use of Cibachrome direct reversal colour paper and black silver masks in the creation of composite images. The results are all right there on the Stratosfear sleeve. “That's shot from Cleveland Hills overlooking Middlesborough; that's an upside down shot from a plane; the flying slabs, they came from 2001. The type isn't good enough. We probably didn't even see that type until it was proofed. We specced the type up on an overlay, sent it to the printers. Today, you'd just adjust it in Photoshop.”

Ulrich Schnauss - free IN STORE concert appearance, London Nov 8 2016
