From 60s Berlin to the vast universe, the distance seemed inconceivable until three pioneers of electronic music tried to bridge the gap, and in so doing, defined the sound of the future. This is the story of Tangerine Dream, one of the most rebellious groups and worthy rivals of Pink Floyd, as narrated by the legendary leader of the group Edgar Froese and a wide range of guests from old members to Jean Michel Jarre and Michael Mann. Director in attendance

Revolution Of Sound Tangerine Dream

German pioneers of electronic music? Revolutionary experimentalists in search for the ultimate sound? Former hippies who tried to envision what the future would look like if put in notes? All the above and much more are part of a cinematic journey spread in four decades and two continents, documenting the course of a group which started off in small clubs and Berlin communes and ended up conquering the world.

Edgar Froese, the legendary band leader is our guide, providing us with invaluable narrations, combined with rich (and never seen before) footage, legendary Tangerine Dream appearances and interviews with many guests, from band members to Jean Michel Jarre and Michael Mann. Director in attendance
