The letter in which John Peel writes to Edgar Froese how the album Zeit calms him down after a long day of bad music.

The band Tangerine Dream was founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese in West Berlin. They were early pioneers of electronic music, who, with albums like Phaedra and Rubycon, laid the foundation for new styles such as Ambient and Trance. Through uncovered photographs and videos, original synthesizers, cassettes and vinyl, the exhibition Tangerine Dream: Zeitraffer reveals London's key role in the international breakthrough of Tangerine Dream during the 1970s. Visitors are taken on an analogue journey through unseen footage, unpublished articles and original synthesizers with one of electronic music's pioneering groups.
