"Dedicated to our musical hero Edgar Froese. R.I.P."


In August 2018 Tangerine Dream had performed on the Dekmantel Festival in The Netherlands, including an improvised session at the end of the concert. The Sessions V now features this session as part of a double CD, together with two other improvised sessions which were performed and recorded live in a rehearsal room in Berlin in November 2017. One of the latter sessions comes in both an audio and a video version.


This album continues Tangerine Dream's 'Session' series that so far consists of:



Furthermore, with The Sessions V the so-called 'double cupdisc' series is continued.


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"The Sessions V EP contains instant compositions (about 98 min of music) from the current TD line-up Thorsten Quaeschning, Hoshiko Yamane and Ulrich Schnauss plus an exclusive video of the Regattastrecke session filmed at the band's Berlin based rehearsal room (about 22 min).
The first track IJ is a live composition recorded during their performance at Dekmantel Festival, Amsterdam (NL), in August 2018.
The second track Gruenau On The Other Side and the third track Regattastrecke were also recorded at the band's rehearsal room at Betonwerk in Berlin (GER) in November 2017.
The fourth track is a video of Regattastrecke that captures the private musical session in their intimate rehearsal room filmed by BB-Film Berlin. Enjoy these wonderful atmospheric tracks!"
