Been listening to this, this afternoon – nice & nicely put together! A wonderful representation of Mr. Froese’s pioneering sound & electronic essence.
In May & June Spheredelic presented the double-album, ‘Edgar Froese – Special Tribute’. It was constructed in honor of the German musicial genius, composer, movie actor & artist Edgar Froese.
His fame originated from his project Tangerine Dream which developed from deconstructivist, traditionally instrumentalized avantgarde roots to one of the most important & pioneering forces in electronic music.
The sad occasion of Edgar Froese´s death early this year triggered FZK Wolf (aka Christian Fiesel) initiative: a tribute radio show, gathering ambient musicians from all over the world (USA, Canada, Australia, Scandinavia, Germany) in commemoration of the musician. It was originally transmitted by the online broadcast Modul 303.
The material collected by that transmission is now available on Spheredelic in the form of two epic compilations (total playtime over 4 hours!). Part one will be released in May, part two in June.
The music reflects Edgar’s work in various facets, partly continuing the tradition of Tangerine Dream, partly seeking new pathways. In this manner Edgar remains alive via the collective musical memory.
