A tribute concert by Tangerine Dream for founding member Edgar Froese, performed at the Philharmony Szczecin, Poland in 2016.
They performed perfectly to my ‘Temples’ film and particle animations ‘Particle Man’ and ‘Star Girl’.
It’s a compilation from rushes and excerpts from one camera, so there are some gaps and incomplete parts.
What a thrill and an honour 🙂

Here’s some pics of Tangerine Dream playing live last week in Poland. A lot of my visuals and animation were used. The concert was a tribute to the late Edgar Froese. They are also planning a new tour and album, and I’m thrilled to be providing more of my work for their performances.

I love it when people can describe my work better than I can..
A constantly evolving play of references between human and cybernetic, with the most intricate and genius 2.0 creative craftsmanship: “Particle Man”
“Particle Man”. Immersive spaces, 3D digital sculptures created in the image and likeness of mathematical and scientific models. A manic 2.0 craftsmanship, made of studies in Newtonian physics to investigate forces, accelerations and the mass of individual particles of matter – narrated and created via software. They are intended to create a human head, including deviations, escapes, sudden drifts, where the final result is never certain. “Emergent art” as the Irishman Glenn Marshall calls it. He boasts a high level prize list for its activities in computer animation and motion graphics, as well as the outstanding achievement of having been able to work closely with Peter Gabriel. His works, available on his Vimeo profile, exceeded the million views mark.
Particle Man will be showing at roBOt08, Italy – visit the page here-
