The debut album of pioneering electronic group Tangerine Dream is getting a reissue on cassette by Radiation Records.
Electronic Meditation is the only album to feature the lineup of Edgar Froese, Klaus Schulze and Conrad Schnitzler. Schulze & Schnitzler went on to have solo careers as electronic artists.
Recorded in a rented factory in Berlin in 1969 using only a Revox two-track, Electronic Meditation is arguably Tangerine Dream at its most experimental, but also captures the band at its embryonic state, sounding less like an electronic band than more of a psychedelic rock band. The band plays guitar, organ, drums, custom-made and found sound such as such broken glass, burning parchment, and dried peas being shaken in a sieve.
It’s available to pre-order via Forced Exposure.
