Tangerine Dream has today released the first track from the new EP “Probe 6-8” that is a preview of the upcoming album in March 2022.
Too much gear news the last few days and weeks. No problem, there is also new music.
Tangerine Dream has today released new music and announced a new EP for November and a new album for 2022.
Tangerine Dream EP Probe 6-8
During the last months, Tangerine Dream were working on the EP ‘Probe 6-8’ in their Berlin studio space. Classic studio productions and late night real time compositions became the blueprint for slowly evolving ambient structures. The band’s sequencer driven sound in the tradition of the early ’70s work was combined with lush 1980s crystalline bliss.
Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Paul Frick composed and produced with full access to Edgar Froese’s Cubase arrangements and Otari Tape Archive with recordings from 1977 – 2013.
For the first time in decades, Tangerine Dream’s tracks can not exactly be re-created for a live performance. An EP, which was not meant to be performed live, as a direct response to the many canceled shows of the last months. ‘Probe 6-8’ is the band’s preview to their upcoming album in March 2022, the second studio album after the passing of the founder Edgar Froese.
Composed by Edgar Froese, Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane & Paul Frick. Remixes by Grand River and Sam Barker.
The first track Raum of the new EP is out now. A very exciting video that gives insights in the composition workflows of the band. And of course you can see tons of synths including a Waldorf Quantum, a big modular wall, and more.
The new Tangerine Dream EP “Probe 6-8” will be released on November 26, 2021, a new album in March 2022.
