With the sad passing of Tangerine Dream's Edgar Froese we're marking the end of an era of innovative electronic music. Froese's style spanned the most evocative of ambient electronics to the rockiest guitar sounds, and the music at this unique event will reflect all these. The event also sees the launch of a new tribute CD to Edgar Froese "Change of Cosmic Address" created by Mark Jenkins and Chris Jenkins who also designed the striking artwork. You'll be able to enjoy two long sets of live electronic music featuring on stage an amazing stack of synths, sequencers and computers.

The venue is The Big Chill House a couple of minutes walk from King's Cross station in central London, an excellent convivial bar-style atmosphere for such a unique memorial event.

Everyone involved looks forward to seeing you there. More information on the Facebook page, and if you're unable to attend, the "Change of Cosmic Address" album is available for download now from Bandcamp, and a CD will be available very shortly through CDS, Amazon and all the usual outlets.

Thanks to everyone who has kindly commented on the release of this album in other threads. As lifetime fans of Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream, Mark and I wanted to mark Edgar's passing in the way we thought best, by creating this unique tribute to his work. To correct some ill-informed speculation in other threads - yes, this is all new, original music created specially for the album, not a compilation of old or existing tracks. The album was intentionally created in as short a time as possible to capture the spontaneity and improvisational nature of early TD work. We hope you enjoy the album in the spirit in which it was created, as a sincere tribute to our musical hero.

Please feel free to make your own judgements about the music after listening to it on Bandcamp, where you can hear the complete album, not just extracts. The album is available for digital download from Bandcamp, and the CD can be ordered from CDS, and shortly from Amazon and other sources.

The live performance event and CD launch in London on April 11th 2015 is FREE ADMISSION - it's not intended to be a profit-making event, but a chance for fans of Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream to get together to celebrate the life and work of this great artist. We hope to see you there.

Chris Jenkins
