Covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres, Quantum Gate is a brilliant contemporary updating of Tangerine Dream's trademark sound of sequencer-driven Ambient Electronica.
 
The album began as a concept and series of musical sketches by Edgar Froese in 2015. Following his death, the remaining band members - Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane - have worked together to realise Edgar's visions of an album that attempts to translate quantum physics and philosophy into music. 
 
Ulrich Schnauss comments: “At the moment hardly any other area of science questions our concept of reality (linearity of time etc.) as profoundly as research in Quantum physics and it's no surprise that Edgar was drawn to these ideas since he had always aimed at reminding listeners of the existence of 'unopened doors’."
 
Tangerine Dream have had a profound influence on electronic and progressive music since their formation in 1967, inspiring many genres, musicians and other art forms: From The Future Sound Of London to Porcupine Tree, Netflix show Stranger Things (which their music also featured in) to seminal video game Grand Theft Auto V (for which TD contributed to the soundtrack). 
 
The group has received seven Grammy nominations, written over 100 studio albums and were led by synth pioneer Edgar Froese until his death in 2015.
