After Edgar Froese's death in , Michael Mann wrote down his thoughs about about the experience of working with the band on that soundtrack. I had culled music ideas from Tangerine Dream's Alpha Centauri and Phaedra , that I referred to constantly during shooting. In post, after shipping a dupe of the film, many phone conversations and cues back and forth, we spent a week together on the final in their studio.
Their studio was amazing. It was a gutted cinema near the Berlin Wall. Earlier, I had been divided between choosing music regionally native to Thief , Chicago Blues, or going with a completely electronic score.
The choice was intimidating because two very different motion picture experiences would result. Right then, the work of Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Faust was an explosion of experimental and rich material from a young generation coming of age out of the ruins and separating itself from WWII Germany. It was the cutting edge of electronic music. And, it had content. It wasn't sonic atmospheres.
There was nothing in the UK or the States like it. Further, there was a relationship between the blues and Froese because he had started out as a blues guitarist. Even though their music was electronic, it had a twelve bar blues structure to most of it. More importantly he, as an artist and a man, was connected to the material reality of life on the street and he found musical inspiration there, as does the Blues.
Culturally, he was attuned to the politics of the '60s and '70s. Berlin was still steeped in its recent history and its history… the Wall, shrapnel damage to building facades…was still evident. The score was adventurous with some real voyages of discovery. Working with analog sequencers and synthesizers we were also processing sound effects, which I had brought in a suitcase on mag, so that ocean waves might crash in G Major, the same key as the cue. It was a wonderful artistic collaboration.
Thinking back to what was at the time cutting edge technology but so primitive now, it was more fun. They were innovating processes and re-combining components to do stuff on frontiers that Moog never envisioned, as new ideas showed up. It was Edgar's open spirit and embrace of possibilities that made it all occur. A somewhat unique soundtrack for its time was the result. Working together with band-mates Johannes Schmoelling and Christopher Franke with Froese in the lead in a gutted movie theater, hard by the Berlin Wall, it seems like not so long ago and it was the best of times.
Mann's positive experience led him to work with the band again for The Keep. Amazingly, the music Tangerine Dream composed for that film, with a few exceptions, does not sound dated today. Many of TD's s soundtracks sound firmly entrenched in the period, but most of the music in The Keep would be perfectly at home in a modern film. The Night in Romania music, Logos music used in the scene where the German soldiers remove the silver cross and awaken the evil, and perhaps the end credits music, each have elements that date them to the early s, but otherwise the rest of the score has held up well.
According to the Production handbook for The Keep , the filming schedule was such that TD had to start composing music before filming actually began in September and before there was a finished script.
As films are shot and edited into a rough cut, many directors add a temporary score using existing music until the composers have completed their film score. Mann did that both before and during the filming as a rough cut was being assembled, but took it a step further as he already had in mind to use several existing TD compositions, as well as the music of other composers.
This was Mann's standard procedure, as he stated in I don't like to score afterwards. I have half the music cues in mind before I shoot. We have a terrific relationship. I think their work on Thief was very successful. This music is very different. This The Keep is much more melodic.
There are different influences. We're using Thomas Tallis, we're using a lot of choirs processed through a vocoder. I've got in my brain maybe seven or eight hours of their music" - Director Michael Mann in After initial discussion with Mann about the film score in September , Tangerine Dream then toured Europe in October and November, playing several new compositions that would end up being used in the The Keep.
They released some of the music recorded for their London concert on the album Logos Live, just a few weeks after the tour ended, and in December they visited The Keep set at Pinwood Studios.

Given the current unavailability of this series, i love being able to grab the volumes I do not have on LP sigh, remember them. Or even better, ripping it as FLAC files. And if the resultant mass of files is large, making it available seperately by volume, so we could choose which volumes to download. Thanks for these. Can you please re-up volume 4? Mass mirror says the file doesn't exist for some reason.
The rest of them downloaded fine. Thanks for this amazing series as well as "songs" bellow, but that I already knew! Of course I prefer a kb than a 66kb, but what the hell, this is about sharing and discovering new stuff ZER could you possibly "assist" me in my Quest?? Andy Rampage: I hope you can appreciate my honesty, but it may be a while before I reupload these.

I barely have enough free time at the moment to get my posts up for the Halloween Countdown, otherwise I wouldn't mind taking care of it now. I hope you understand. Take care.

This is the price for one! Sunshine has elements of indie band The Delays and a lead singer with a tendency to go all falsetto during choruses. Red Chalk Hill is like a conflation of Bowie and Barrett songcraft. The Barons issued five singles on Imperial between and , but only the last was issued here.

This band was thrown together for school concerts in the Bristol area, staying together to record this copy album.
