Composers Peter Baumann and Paul Haslinger, both former members of Tangerine Dream, have announced a new joint project, Neuland.
Baumann was a member of Tangerine Dream during the ‘classical ‘period in the ‘70s, while Haslinger was a member from 1985-90.
Here’s what they have to say about Neuland:
Neuland translates into ‘New Territory’ and reflects the unusual musical and visual landscape at the core of this project.
Neuland was designed as a sensory exploration at a time when many aspects of the landscape of electronic music have come full circle, as the origins of popular electronic music are rediscovered and re-contextualized by a new audience. “We ultimately don’t know where this path will lead us, but we enjoy diving into the unknown,” says Haslinger.
The group’s inaugural release, titled Neuland, is scheduled for release later this year. It will contain a double-album’s worth of material, and be release on all platforms, including special edition vinyl. A series of special live events to introduce the projects are planned in conjunction with the release, with a potential tour following in 2020.
