Founded in 1967, Tangerine Dream has seen many changed line-ups and weathered many musical storms, but their distinctive and immersive sound remains incredibly potent and enormously influential.
The score to Friedkin's Sorcerer rates as one of the band's most successful musical releases and is very much a concept album independent of the film. Now it comes to Melbourne for only its second live performance ever.
In trademark Tangerine Dream style, layer upon layer upon layer of deep synth and soaring electronic peaks set against Friedkin’s exciting and gripping images will overwhelm you.
The film itself has its roots in Henri-Georges Clouzot's classic 1953 psychological thriller, The Wages of Fear, where a group of mercenaries are charged with transporting trucks of nitroglycerine through the South American jungle. But Tangerine Dream's touch rips the story out of the 1950s and places it firmly in the 1970s with a good dash of thumping rhythm laced with heavy psychedelia.
Hear the score in full, uninterrupted and utterly intimate in a one-off and truly memorable live experience.
Please note, the film only screens as a visual backdrop to Tangerine Dream's live performance.
