Edgar Froese, founding member of the band Tangerine Dream and an electronic music pioneer, passed away after suffering a pulmonary embolism on January 20th.
His influence on my musical career is immeasurable. His music, the soundtrack of my life. From light and ethereal to dark and foreboding, his music is very personal to me and I have always felt comfort as I traveled through the soundscapes he created.
I am thankful that he shared so much wonderful music with the world and that it will live on. I'm also grateful that I had the chance to meet him, shake his hand, and tell him these things.
