The Goethe-Institut in co-operation with Melbourne Music Week delights in presenting a couple of exclusive performances by Tangerine Dream. German electronic music pioneeres founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese; not only did they have a pivotal role in the development of 'krautrock', they are well known for their film soundtracks as well. This totals over 60 and include the movies Sorcerer, Thief, The Keep, Risky Business, Firestarter, Legend and Miracle Mile to name a few. They also recently composed the original score for the video game Grand Theft Auto V.
