Always pick Tangerine Dream! Gerd runs it back to the heyday of German experimental rock and synth meditations.
Happy New Year and welcome back to Gerd Janson’s risky rhythm workouts, coming to you now on the second Wednesday of each month (yes, it’s a new slot — it’s a new year!). Now here’s a timely reference for you: Let’s assume you’ve all watched Black Mirror’s point-and-click adventure Bandersnatch by now – we can trust that every single one of you has picked Phaedra as the score, yes? If not, no worries, Gerd has you covered with a history lesson in German experimental rock and synth meditations, with considerations of Manuel Göttsching, Can, Harmonia and, of course, Tangerine Dream. As a wise man once said: “How can I move the kraut? First of all, ain’t no mistakes allowed.”
