After William Friedkin’s 1977 white-knuckle SORCERER introduced the world to the sensually alluring, yet alien electronic soundscapes of Germany’s Tangerine Dream, the band went on to define a wide breadth of cinematic scores throughout the 80s and inspire countless acts to continue the celestial voyage they began.
