Tangerine Dream is one of the most respected progressive, Avant-garde New Age bands of all time. This statement remains true every passing day as it was in the early 70’s, when they proved to be the most influential group to shape cutting edge electronic synthesizer music into some of our favorite classic albums of all time.

New Releases from Tangerine Dream are as innovative today as they were during the early years. With their numerous live performance CDs, DVD, soundtrack, and studio albums, Tangerine Dream continues to produce outstanding new music today, and with their proven track record, this iconic group will carry on the tradition of excellence many years forward.

The first new CD release is The Gate of Saturn – Tangerine Dream Live at the Lowry Manchester 2011. This is a 3CD full length recording that includes a colorful 16 page photo booklet taken during the live concert.

Mona Da Vinci is a 1 CD album of newly released material. The Angel of the West Window – Gustav Meyrink is a project based on a novel Austrian author Gustav Meyrink wrote in 1927. The Island Of The Fay – Edgar Allan Poe contains 1 CD and is first in a series of future projects.

Thief Soundtrack by Tangerine Dream.

Movie Soundtracks & Film Scores have provided many classic moments in film history over the years by transforming a great movie into an extraordinary motion picture simply by utilizing the appropriate score to create theatrical excitement and drama to the actor’s character identity.

Tangerine Dream is after all a New Age music icon whose influence over the years should not be in doubt by anyone. With over 20 movie soundtracks alone to their credit, they have given much to the film industry by their electronic music.

Tangerine Dream’s influence is apparent today as it was in the year 1981 when Tangerine Dream provided the Thief soundtrack for the Michael Mann original motion picture Thief. The movie has an R rating, and is based on the book The Home Invaders by Frank Hohimer. The staring actors James Cann, Tuesday Weld, James Belushi and Willie Nelson portrayed their roles quite convincingly I might add.

During the movie score for Thief Soundtrack, the synthesizer and electric guitar laden song Diamond Diary was used extensively during the first 9 minutes of the opening scene. The song video below gives one an excellent feel of the movie atmosphere, plus there are few spoken words to interrupt the song taken from the actual movie scene. The police scanners even add a bit of excitement to the video.

Tangerine Dream band members performing on the Thief Soundtrack are Edgar Froese on keyboards, electronic equipment and guitar. Christopher Franke on synthesizers, electronic equipment and electronic percussion. Johannes Schmoelling on keyboards and electronic equipment. Craig Safan composed and performed the song Confrontation.

Visit the official tangerinedream-music.com and Amazon.com to sample or purchase the Thief Soundtrack.

Here is the YouTube song video of Diamond Diary with the opening scene from this classic movie.
