Electronic pioneer Edgar Frose (1944-2015) of Tangerine Dream passed last week. May you rest in peace, Edgar and…thanks for the great music!

German artist and electronic music pioneer Edgar Froese, best known for founding the electronic music group Tangerine Dream, died on January 20 in Vienna of a plumonary embolism. He was 70. Among his works, in 1975, Froese released Epsilon In Malaysian Pale, a Mellotron-based piece inspired by a visit to a Malaysian jungle. Just before his death, Froese completed work on his 500-page autobiography, Tangerine Dream – Force Majeure – 1967 – 2014. Tangerine Dream’s website posted: “The sadness in our hearts is immense. Edgar once said: ‘There is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address.’ Edgar, this is a little comfort to us.”

Warsaw 1997 [Tangerine Tree, Volume 20, 1CD]
Live at the Sala Kongresowa Warsaw, Poland; June 13, 1997. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to everyone involved; and to tadreamer62 for sharing the show at Dime.

Tangerine Dream’s gig in June 1997 was the last concert of their European tour in spring 1997. The first set of that show (the so-called ‘Vintage Set’, consisting of older compositions for the most part) was broadcast by the Polish FM radio. A remastered version of excellent quality of this broadcast can be heard on Tangerine Tree Volume 20: Warsaw 1997. The track list is slightly different to the set that was recorded during the London concert in November 1997 and released officially as Valentine Wheels. Thus, the Warsaw record is a nice counterpart to the album, Tournado, which features the second set (the ‘Modern Set’) of the tour, as recorded in Zabrze in April 1997. – voices-in-the-net.de
