Tangerine Dream at Union Chapel

We captured the foundational electronic music outfit’s first UK show since the death of founder Edgar Froese.

Ulrich Schnauss, who has been part of Tangerine Dream since 2014, says that pretty much all contemporary music—not just acolytes of the band’s prog-leaning electronics, but genres like R&B and hip-hop—would be slightly different if the German group had never existed. This is the legacy that Schnauss and two others, Thorsten Quaeschning and the Japanese violinist Hoshiko Yamane, seek to uphold in the wake of founder member Edgar Froese’s death in 2015.

There have been countless different Tangerine Dream lineups since the late 1960s, releasing dozens of albums along the way. Back in April, the latest incarnation performed live at London’s Union Chapel. This film captures the trio performing two songs—1977’s “Monolight” and 1986’s “Dolphin Dance”—along with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. As she introduced the band to the crowd, Froese’s widow, Bianca Froese-Acquaye, looked up and said, “Tangerine Dream at Union Chapel—Edgar would have liked this.”
