Continuing Tangerine Dream’s exploration of literary soundtracks, here is Edgar Froese & Co.’s dramatic musical retelling of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, one of the most celebrated novels of the last century!
Sensuous melodies with impressionistic textures, this album will have TD fans enthralled from the opening notes to the final ambient wave!
“Finnegans Wake” is probably one of the most misinterpreted books of the last Century. Only for those who could figure out about the real background of James Joyce, the writer of this fascinating book, will find a complete different approach to the puzzled story. Joyce used different terms from about 80 different languages to explain the question which has been asked since the dawn of mankind: Who am I, where do I come from and where I’m going to. He answered that question in his very specific way.
The music Tangerine Dream comes up with to give the book an unusual dress of sounds, is not avant-garde nor is it modern with a commercial attitude, it just guides you through a different world of distinct perceptions. Give yourself a try and dive into a world of sensuous impressions – let Joyce’s story flow through your ears!
