ONE of the most diverse and exciting musical collaborations is finally ready to hit your speakers on double CD: Tangerine Dream announces the eagerly awaited release of Starmus – Sonic Universe with guest guitarist Brian May.

The result of a very special set at the Starmus Festival in sunny Tenerife, the album immortalizes an unlikely yet heavenly match, as Tangerine Dream join forces on stage with the legendary musician.

May has earned himself a place in rock history with one of the most iconic bands of all times: Queen. Ambient pioneers Tangerine Dream were the first band ever to use Moog sequencer rhythm live on stage and are well known for their highly acclaimed Hollywood film scores.

However, the fusion of such different talents is not the only thing making Starmus – Sonic Universe unique.

The first track of the album, Supernova, features the real sound of acoustic pressure waves from stars, captured by astrophysicist Prof. Garik Israelian – also founder of the event.

The second track on Starmus is May’s solo hit Last Horizon.

Brian May is back again at the end of the set for Sally’s Garden, a traditional Irish air arranged by Tangerine Dream, and a very special version of We Will Rock You with a coda “largely improvised by us all on the spot”.
