It is the first appearance of violinist Hoshiko Yamane on a Tangerine dream record.
This work is the beginning of a new series by Tangerine Dream: EASTGATE'S Sonic Poem Series. Edgar Allan Poe definitely is worth a start, a novelist who long enough has been labelled as dark, mysterious and gloomy only - Poe was more than that - a true visionary.
Edgar Allan Poe's ‘The Island of the Fay' has been set to music by Edgar and Thorsten in a very exciting, dynamic and partly experimental way - a new violinist sets her maverick accents with electric sounds. It's the art of breathing life into a tale through strong music.
PS: You will find the whole but short tale of ‘The Island of the Fay' within the booklet! Enjoy reading but above all: enjoy listening!
