This is a tribute to Tangerine Dream that I have recently created using the synthesizers and additional equipment detailed below. Please note - no samples have been used.
Inspiration came from both Bootleg and Official recordings that were produced from the early to the late 70's. the first 15 mins or so are mainly atmospherics in the style of the many bootleg recordings from this era with a bit of Zeit and Rubycon in there as well as a touch of Madrigal Meridian, the last section is more rhythmic, ending up in Coldwater Canyon territory. The snare sound throughout the latter section was created by a regular burst of White Noise with it's beat varied throughout using an LFO. Which could be the same way that Chris Franke would have done it before they had Drum Machines.
It's not a perfect recording because I'm not very experienced at this recording malarkey, there's a bit of low volume buzzing prior to the rhythmic bit, and a touch of volume saturation from the Mellotron Strings (Nord) at one point. But I've bathed the whole thing in a bit of reverb to give it a touch of added live-ness.
Just pretend you're in a Cathedral in '75, or something
