“Tangerine Dream is science fiction!” declares band leader Edgar Froese who died in January, 2015 aged 70. For almost fifty years he and his band “Tangerine Dream” explored sound and its effect on our emotions. This film about one of Germany’s first electronic bands kicks off with the young Berlin musicians who were as inspired by the space age of the 1960s, with its rocket launchings and visions of the future, as they were by their own heartbeat, on which Froese also based compositions. Aided by the Moog and other synthesisers Froese (and various band members) revolutionised popular music. His explorations took him into the worlds of classical, new and film music. He preferred to visualise moods rather than create clearly structured songs. Directors such as Michael Mann and Paul Brickman discuss their intensive collaborations with Froese that produced some of the most unusual soundtracks of the 1980s, for films such as “Risky Business” (Paul Brickman, 1983) or “Near Dark” (Kathryn Bigelow, 1987). A blend of amateur footage, interviews with band members, relatives, friends and colleagues such as Jean-Michel Jarre that creates a comprehensive portrait of an artistic pioneer.

„Tangerine Dream ist Science Fiction!“ Bandleader Edgar Froese, der 2015 70-jährig verstarb, erforschte mit seiner Band „Tangerine Dream“ den Sound und dessen Wechselwirkung mit den Gefühlen. Der Film über eine der ersten Elektronikbands Deutschlands beginnt mit jungen Berliner Musikern, die der Beginn des „Space Age“ in den 1960er-Jahren samt Raketenstarts und Zukunftsvisionen genauso inspirierte wie der eigene Herzschlag, aus dem Froese Musik komponierte. Mit der Hilfe von Moogs und anderen Synthesizern revolutionierte er (in wechselnder Begleitung) das Genre der Pop- und Unterhaltungsmusik – er ging weit in die Klassik, in die Neue Musik, in die Filmmusik hinein, und erschuf statt klar strukturierter Songs lieber visualisierbare Stimmungen: Regisseure wie Michael Mann und Paul Brickman erzählen von der Zusammenarbeit, aus der einige der ungewöhnlichsten Soundtracks der 1980er-Jahre entstanden, unter anderem für Risky Business (Paul Brickman, 1983) oder Near Dark (Kathryn Bigelow, 1987). Anhand von Amateuraufnahmen, Interviews mit Bandmitgliedern, Familienangehörigen, Freunden und Kollegen wie Jean-Michel Jarre, entsteht ein umfassendes Porträt eines künstlerischen Pioniers.
