Live Improvisation By Tangerine Dream On A Boat In Budapest

Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures an extended improvisation by Tangerine Dream, the 10.00pm Session, recorded live at A38 in Budapest in 2017.

A38 is a unique venue – a 50+ year old Ukranian stone-carrier ship that was renovated to turn it into a floating event space.

The group’s recent performances often combine new arrangements of classic TD tracks with extended improvisational ‘Sessions’.

Longtime TD fans may hear echoes in their A38 improvisation of some of the group’s early incarnations, especially the melodic synth and Mellotron lines of the classic 70’s lineup of Franke, Froese & Baumann, and sequencing that’s closer to the group’s 80’s Franke, Froese & Schmoelling lineup.

The performance features the current lineup of Tangerine Dream:

  • Thorsten Quaeschning (Synthesizer, Piano, Sequencer)
  • Hoshiko Yamane (Electric Violin, Ableton Live)
  • Ulrich Schnauss (Synthesizer, Ableton Live)

The 10:00pm Session has previously been released on the EP The Sessions 1.
