Tangerine Dream collaborated with Brian May the former Queen lead guitarist for their latest album, Starmus – Sonic Universe which was recorded live in Tenerife in 2011. The album is available through the Tangerine Dream website now.
The Starmus Festival was held in June 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Juri Gagarin’s first spaceflight; it was attended by spacemen Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Alexei Leonow and Jim Lovell amongst others. The first track of the album, ‘Supernova’, features the real sound of acoustic pressure waves from stars, captured by astrophysicist Prof. Garik Israelian – also founder of the event. ‘We did send it to Brian some time prior to the concert, so he had the chance to get an overall feel for this very progressive score’ – comments Edgar Froese – ‘He’s not only an exceptional guitarist, but also a very open-minded artist to work with’.
