More Info

'Mala Kunia', the mini-album & roughly Tangerine Dream's 140th release was originally released in tangent with the bands' 2014 Australian concerts - The album features seven new compositions including two of which were co-composed by new band member Ulrich Schnauss together with Edgar Froese.

With this release, a new Tangerine Dream era began, "The Quantum Years", which
focused on a more back to basics approach to composition influenced by quantum physics. The album itself is named after two Aboriginal tribes, which, according to Aboriginal mythology, living a long time ago around Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock. The Mala tribe lived on the sunny side & the Kunia on the shady side of the rock.

Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic music since
Edgar Froese founded the band in West Berlin, 1967. Providing the groundwork
for multiple electronic music genres including ambient & electronica, inspiring
musicians & other art forms.

The group have also received seven Grammy nominations, written over 100
studio albums & were led by Froese, who developed an instantly recognisable
synth-based instrumental music based on a meditative musical experience that
came to prominence in the 70's & 80's.

Although Edgar Froese passed away in 2015 with a new phase in the bands
history only just beginning, he left direct orders to remaining members: "Carry on
& make my vision for the Quantum Years phase of the band happen!"
