In 1981 I was with my father in a Tangerine Dream concert in the Stadthalle Bremen. This piece of music brought both memories of this event and a very fresh note on top. Wonderful music beyond time and technology.
This starts of on a very shine-on-you-crazy-diamondy note before steering into tangerine-dreamy waters - no surprise there ;-)

THORSTEN QUAESCHNING behind closed doors with... MARKUS REUTER
The best art is often created behind closed doors.
Together with renowned musicians, Thorsten Quaeschning of Tangerine Dream welcomes you to a series of musical evenings (Mondays and Thursdays) of a most special kind:
In collaboration with his guests, Quaeschning concocts real-time compositions for the distant eyes and ears of the audience, carrying them off into a unique world of sound far away from nights of monotonous entertainment.
The setup in front of the grand, but empty stage at ufaFabrik Berlin as well as the technically elaborate execution allow the audience to experience an extraordinary concert without having to leave the privacy of their homes.
Quaeschning and his team make use of the exceptional composer's extensive collection of equipment – and more. Creatively, all bets are off:
The Picture Palace Music-founder promises to go "wherever the music takes us".
