Brian May & Tangerine Dream
Pair release 'Starmus - Sonic Universe'
Tangerine Dream has announced the eagerly awaited release of STARMUS – SONIC UNIVERSE with guest guitarist Brian May. The result of a very special set at the Starmus Festival in Tenerife, the album captures an unlikely yet heavenly match, as Tangerine Dream join forces on stage with the legendary Queen musician.
The Starmus Festival was held in June 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Juri Gagarin’s first spaceflight, and 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’ says Edgar Froese. ‘He’s not only an exceptional guitarist, but also a very open-minded artist to work with’.
