Recreating Classic Tangerine Dream Berlin School Music on a Eurorack Modular Synthesizer

In this video, synthesist Gary P Hayes takes a look at recreating four Tangerine Dream Berlin School classics, using a modest Eurorack modular synth rig.

The video focuses on recreating the core sequences and sounds of Tangerine Dream’s Ricochet, Cherokee Lane, Rubycon and Phaedra.

While TD used massive modular systems  to create many of their sounds, Hayes uses a compact rig, centered around inexpensive Behringer gear, including their Euro-format Moog 960, ‘D’ and ARP Solina copies.

What Hayes say about the video:

Using this impressive looking, but limited budget gear, I take you into building the key sequences or two from scratch and the top lines and pads.

The chapters break the video into the ‘Making of’ an excerpt of each work and then a ‘Mini Performance’ called ‘Essences’ – putting it into practice.
