EDGAR FROESE and his band TANGERINE DREAM in search of the ultimative sound. REVOLUTION OF SOUND is a must-see for the TD fan - a music historical survey of the pioneers of electronic music starting their career in the late 60ies until today.
Including interviews with Jean-Michel Jarre, Volker Schlöndorff, Michael Mann, Richard Branson, Thorsten Quaeschning, J. Schmoelling, P. Baumann, J. Froese, Bianca Froese-Acquaye, Margarete Kreuzer etc.
A great portion of the film material was recorded by the founder and head of Tangerine Dream EDGAR FROESE himself who was an avid cameraman a whole life time. Sadly Edgar died in 2015 shortly after the crew started shooting the film. Bianca and Margarete decided to continue this important project and used a lot of original quotes from Edgar's autobiography FORCE MAJEURE as a basis for the film.
Thanks to Tag/Traum, ARTE, WDR and the TD fans all around the globe who made it possible that this exciting documentary could be realised.
Edgar Froese, band leader of Tangerine Dream and pioneer of electronic music, is on a lifelong mission to find the ultimate sound. His constant quest takes him and his fellow band members to worldwide success, all the way to the Hollywood studios in Los Angeles. At his death in January 2015, Edgar Froese leaves a legacy of 48 years of music history. The film shows previously unreleased footage shot by the band leader himself: For the first time, we see the band backstage, on tour in Europe and the US, at photoshoots with Jim Rakete or on holiday at the seaside. Records and interviews with his wife Bianca Froese-Acquaye, with band members, close associates and fellow artists map the unique history of Tangerine Dream: a tribute to the musician Edgar Froese and the era of electronic music.
