Progrography

Christopher Franke
It was Christopher Franke and Edgar Froese who anchored the Tangerine Dream lineup through the celebrated, experimental '70s and into the productive '80s. Franke left the band before embarking on a solo career as a new age and film composer. It's been a different chapter than the dark corridors of Dream, split between serviceable soundtracks (including the Babylon 5 series) and successful new age releases (Pacific Coast Highway, The London Concert, The Celestine Prophecy: A Musical Voyage). Travelling between Germany (where he records with his Berlin Symphonic Film Orchestra) and Los Angeles, Franke has arrived at a kind of California Dream that has little of the old progressive spirit in it but should interest fans of Windham Hill.
