Any chance in considering a TD sound without electronics?
Answered by Edgar Froese
What is normally called music has nothing to do with electronics in the first place. Music is what a composer and/or musician wants to say or portray in terms of sound and a structured pattern. The second step is to find the shortest and most effective way to express yourself. Unfortunately, as they don't have a formal education, pop musicians often use electronics to conceal their lack of knowledge about making music. They can't express themselves any other way. In the first years of my "electronic career" in the early seventies, I had to try very hard to transform my "biochemistry" into sound by turning knobs and shifting faders. Both my solo stuff and my contribution to Tangerine Dream would naturally sound completely different with acoustics, but the spirit behind it would be the same. One day in the near future there will be an unplugged studio recording by TD on the market.
