Sad news: Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese has died. Froese founded the prolific group in 1967 and was the only continuous member as the band played a key role in the development of krautrock and electronic music.
Tangerine Dream released over one hundred albums and composed dozens of scores, most recently for Grand Theft Auto V. Via a message on the group’s Facebook page:
This is a message to you we are very sorry for…
On January 20th, Tuesday afternoon, Edgar Froese suddenly and unexpectedly passed away from the effects of a pulmonary embolism in Vienna.
The sadness in our hearts is immensely.
Edgar once said: “There is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address.”
Edgar, this is a little comfort to us.
