      I bought his biography a long time ago. haven't finished it yet. It's pretty comprehensive of his life and at times not very appealing. i haven't gotten to the Roland stuff yet. He was a survivor through a horrible time with tuberculosis while being and learning to be an engineer. Which is where i left off. Plus he had to deal with some of the WWII bullshit as a child. He put a B/W pic of one of the first NAMM's in 1965 in an LA hotel lobby. There's like 10 vendors or so all hand written signs too.

  5. HOW did I never use the Kronos Sequencer before?

    1. Jon Johnson

      I don't know either.In my opinion its almost a requirement or next to impossible not to use. I've used the OASYS sequencer a good percentage of the time which is the same sequencer however you have the nice drum track :bounce: It making the thing completely self contained.

    This premiered in Paris last week at Goethe-Insitut and is now available to view for a short time. The long awaited Kickstarter project of making the full length bio of Tangerine Dream. I was able to put in an uninterrupted hour of viewing this morning. Its 59 minutes long and has some incredible unseen footage and stills of the band from the early days until the present. Most of my old TD buddies have never seen a lot of the sections and interviews from long ago. It opens with footage taken of Edgar's Artificial Head System experiment. The tables are turned if you don't know German you'll have to rely on the footage which is "terrific" subtitles would be helpful but I just wish I knew how to understand and speak German. 

    A longer version of the film is still in the works as well as the Kickstarter campaign. if you want to know more check it out here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tangerine-dream/tangerine-dream-documentary

      I think the long version will be much better and hopefully feature more of the eras that they kinda rushed through. The focus is centered on the Virgin era i spose for good reason.

      My wife asked me why a band like Tangerine Dream needs a Kickstarter for a documentary?Unless they blew their wad with GAS? I have no info or insider knowledge but it seems even the best of the best never have enough funds or just don't want to spend it. Like King Crimson always seems to be a show string as well.

      I haven't had time to look at anything but it does seem rather stark depending on what you're looking for. Wanker Center didn't send me the usual Black Friday fliers they usually do.

      you know I wondered that too because they didn't have a bass player for the first album but Conrad sorta did a bassline at times on it.

      Wow even more racy. Was this from the 80's when PC dating services were revving up? From looks of her hair and the PC it seems it is.
