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 Visitors are taken on an analogue journey through unseen footage, unpublished articles and original synthesizers with one of electronic music's pioneering groups.

Fast-forward to the present day, when synthesizers and sequencers are being continually rediscovered in music and pop culture, and enjoy a retrospective ‘time-lapse’ (Zeitraffer in German) across the band’s influential 50-year history.
