Tangerine Dream's Edgar Froese died Jan. 20, 2015, at the age of 70. We remember the electronic music pioneer with a set recorded at Moogfest in 2011.

Tangerine Dream has wore many hats during a prolific 35-year career: Krautrock, New Age, film scores and pioneering synth music, to start. The group has consistently worked at a steady clip, generating 116 (!) live and studio albums in spite of its many personnel changes. Edgar Froese, the creative force behind Tangerine Dream, is the only remaining original member.
