We want to explore the world of Tangerine Dream for the first time in a feature-length documentary. This band became famous as one of the pioneers of electronic and experimental music worldwide. They had the desire to achieve the ultimate sound.
Our goal is to uncover the band's musical evolution, their style and their philosophy behind their art. For this reason we will depict the musical heritage of this revolutionary band and its visionary founder Edgar Froese. Furthermore we will show previously unpublished footage from Edgar's private archive.
The impressive story of ,,Tangerine Dream‘‘ will be reconstructed through several interviews with Edgar Froese’s wife Biance Froese-Acquaye, band members, close friends, befriended artists and famous collaborators.
It’s a homage to the great musician Edgar Froese and the early era of electronic music. And last but not least, it's a piece we owe them!
We were currently working on a short documentary about the German band Tangerine Dream.
During the production of this movie, founding member, Edgar Froese sadly passed away. Because of his unexpected death our perspective on Tangerine Dream did change decisively. From that moment on we didn't just want to cherish the band's career, we also wanted to portray Froese’s lifework and keep the bands and its founders legacy. In order to meet our new goals properly, we have to change from a short to a feature-length-documentary.
The Kickstarter community is where it all begins. We need you to reach our ambitious goal and produce this first feature-length documentary about Tangerine Dream. Please give us some advise, ideas and support.
This feature-length documentary will be produced by the experrienced German film production company TAG/TRAUM.
The wife of band founder Edgar Froese - Bianca Froese-Acquaye - will act as a co-producer for our film. Bianca will support us through her insider knowledge and her close contact to band members and the band's early collaborators.
The German director and artist Margarete Kreuzer is the creative mind behind the camera. She has nearly 30 years of experience and is deeply familiar with the world and history of Tangerine Dream.
Now, it's your turn!
Soon Tangerine Dream is going to celebrate its 50th jubilee and as Edgar would say: "Let’s create something new one more time!"
Now it's your turn. Be a part of a unique documentary by supporting this project!
