At time of writing, it is unknown whether there will be more parts. Again, the booklet features a story by Edgar Froese based on a manuscript found 1977 in a military camp in Greenland. The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"It was on December 7th, 1977 at 7 pm when Carlos Enduras climbed up his way to the data shelter in the Greenland hills to check a malfunction which occurred on the monitors at the military headquarter near Thule, Greenland's capital. Carlos all in a sudden was confronted by a character whose behaviour was strange and unknown to him as a human being. Sentences of serious concerns did strike him mentally like 'You're not even able to understand your own life plans full of confusion and you don't have any knowledge at all about the manifestation of other life forms -- how will you identify any data outside the range of your imperfect equipment which is totally useless for the aims of your project?' After a longer conversation, the character disappeared, but offered a second talk next day 7pm, same place up in the mountains of Greenland. Now this is the continuation of the Chandra story: Part two -- exciting and unique music developed from of a mysterious unusual story. Amazing how precise some information has been given about the future of the human race, way beyond pure fiction, reflected by sounds and driving sequences." Only a few days after its CD release this album became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well. The Chandra Postcard
