Tangerine Dream Phaedra


Exclusive Interview with Edgar Froese (Tangerine Dream) Part 3



Album Phaedra was released shortly after Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and enjoyed a great  success...How did you create the music on the album and what was it like recording at the Manor studio?


EF: Richard Branson just had bought the Manor near Oxfordshire and booked Mike Oldfield in there as his first recording artist for his new Virgin Label. So the truth is, that we were second when we moved in for a recording session in December 1973.


The studio equipment was just terrible. Crackling desks, rotten lines and a very unstable electricity. But there was something absolutely unexplainable, a very specific atmosphere which had been totally new to us. Rehearsing, arranging, recording and mixing in there was so different from all other places we had been so far that I believe the surrounding had a huge portion of side effect to the recording of Phaedra back then.


As we had the most advanced electronic equipment you could buy, we were looking for a new sound, new rhythm patterns, new instrumentations and a different way of composing music in general. And maybe as a result of all of these points, we were able to release such stunning extraordinary album.
