It appears that Thorsten Quaeschning, Tangerine Dream's keyboard player and composer, has scored a new film. The announcement was made in a post to the Official Tangerine Dream forum and reads as below:
The film will have its world premiere on Saturday 27th April at 10:00am, as part of the 'Widescreen Weekend' event in the Bradford International Film Festival, UK.
Shot in 4k resolution over the course of four years, REMNANTS charts the rise and fall of the Neolithic civilisation of Britain, via highly stylised, motion controlled timelapse cinematography, set only to Thorsten's score.
The film will be shown in its principal release format of 2k widescreen (the digital equivalent of 'Cinemascope') in the stunning Pictureville Theatre, probably the best cinema in England.

Aside from the inclusion of beautifully re-worked versions of DROWNING MOON and THE GRETCHEN TRAGEDY, the score is entirely original, and his 5.1 mix is absolutely gorgeous.
As director and cinematographer obviously I'm going to sound biased...but I genuinely feel this is Thorsten's masterpiece, and one of the best electronic soundtracks ever.
It was such an incredible honour to work with him. Add to that, it was also tremendous fun!
Individual tickets are available for the screening. However, if you're going to make all the effort to get to Bradford, I can highly recommend you stay over one night and catch the CINERAMACANA section on the following Sunday morning, where you can see some wonderful + rare curiosities of widescreen cinema.
Or you can go all out and buy a pass for the whole weekend. If you've never experienced 3-strip CINERAMA, it's charming and amazing at the same time.
Please see below for all the links and details.
Hope to see a lot of you there, and please do introduce yourself if you come as a result of this forum.
(aka: 32 years and Counting.....make that 37....)
P.S. A release of the soundtrack as a CD / download, and maybe/hopefully the 5.1 mix, is on the cards. I don't have any details yet, but will post as soon as I do.
P.P.S. I advise booking fairly soon.....'Widescreen Weekend' screenings are usually very popular.
