Notes about the production of the
Tangerine Dream Documentary
No. 2
by director Margarete Kreuzer
Edgar sharpened my sense of hearing by talking about frequencies and vibrations, he exercised my mind by discussing about quantum physics and mathematics, and he inspired me by talking about his complementary idol, Pablo Picasso. It was an inspiring start for the shooting of the Tangerine Dream Documentary…
But then, Edgar passed away unexpectedly in January 2015. We were just thinking about interesting scenes for the script in which he legitimately wanted to be the main actor. I was shocked about his death. But I was very pleased to hear Bianca and the broadcast editors Oliver Schwehm, Peter Sommer, and Rolf Bergmann still wanted to realize the movie.

But the most important person was missing: Edgar Froese. How was I supposed to produce the movie without him? My producer from TAG/TRAUM, Gerd Haag, and his team members, Kerstin Krieg and Connie Kellers, encouraged me to continue the work I have already started.

As Edgar was still alive I was able to shoot some takes of him in his studio. He was wearing his black hat, incredibly cool white sneakers completely lost in thoughts while composing. In our discussion I called David Bowie “The Mozart of pop music” and Edgar “The Bach of electronic music”. He was amused about this, but explained to me the very importance of Johann Sebastian Bach for the music of Tangerine Dream.

The first day of the shooting without Edgar was in September 2015. His adorable wife Bianca accompanied me to the acting place. In the “Berliner Admiralspalast“ we met no one else but the director of the famous movie “The Tin Drum“ and Oscar winner, Volker Schlöndorff...(to be continued).
