Edgar Wilmar Froese (born 6 June 1944) is a German artist and electronic music pioneer, best known for founding the electronic music group, Tangerine Dream. Froese was born in Tilsit (Sovetsk), East Prussia, during World War II. After showing an early aptitude for art, Froese enrolled at the Academy of the Arts in West Berlin to study painting and sculpture. In 1965, he formed a band called The Ones, which played rock and R&B standards. While playing in Spain, The Ones were invited to perform at Salvador Dalí's villa in Cadaqués. Froese's encounter with Dalí was highly influential, inspiring him to pursue more experimental directions with his music. The Ones disbanded in 1967, having released only one single ("Lady Greengrass", "Love of Mine"). After returning to Berlin, in 1967, Edgar Froese formed Tangerine Dream with a group of students from Berlin’s Academy of Arts. The first version of Tangerine Dream was originally an electro acoustic group involved in the emerging experimental and new cultural scene of the city and involved in other artistic activities. In 1969, featuring a new lineup with Klaus Schulze on drums and Conrad Schnitzler on cello, Tangerine Dream recorded their debut album “Electronic Meditation”, which is considered one of the most advanced experimental works in the history of modern music. The band has gone through numerous line-up changes since, being the most classic the one formed in the mid 70's by Edgar Froese (guitar, keyboards), Peter Bauhman (keyboards), and Chris Franke (keyboards, drums). During this period Tangerine Dream entered into the world of synthesis and electronica, recording a series of albums that drew the guidelines of the electronic spacial music. Edgar Froese is the only member of the band who has remained through the years. Apart from leadership of Tangerine Dream, Edgar Froese started a parallel solo career in 1974.
