Exhibition: Tangerine Dream: Zeitraffer

This exhibition CLOSED on Thu, 30th Sep 2021

This exhibition has finished.

Cost: Free of Charge


An analogue journey through unseen footage, unpublished articles and original synthesizers with one of electronic music's pioneering groups.

The band Tangerine Dream was founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in West Berlin. They were early pioneers of electronic music, who, with albums like Phaedra and Rubycon, laid the foundation for new styles such as Ambient and Trance.

Through uncovered photographs and videos, original synthesizers, cassettes and vinyl, this exhibition reveals London's key role in the international breakthrough of Tangerine Dream during the 1970s.

Fast-forward to the present day, when synthesizers and sequencers are being continually rediscovered in music and pop culture, and enjoy a retrospective ‘time-lapse’ (Zeitraffer in German) across the band’s influential 50-year history.
