Notes

On July 1st, 2007 the city of Eberswalde (Germany) celebrated the opening of its new "Paul-Wunderlich-Haus", a huge public building complex including an Art Center with permanent exhibitions of the famous painter and sculptor Paul Wunderlich who was born in Eberswalde and became 80 years now. The highly acclaimed surrealist artist has given his name to the Center. Paul Wunderlich's paintings and sculptures can be found within the art collections of Tina Turner, Elton John, Madonna and many others. Tangerine Dream celebrated this opening with a free open air concert and light show on the town's marketplace.

 


On the occasion of this event the EP Bells Of Accra has been released which is dedicated to Wunderlich. It consists of one track of some 14 minutes, composed and performed by Edgar Froese and is said to be a limited release.

 


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"Only a few artists who are known for their very strange view regarding reality -- "reality" as we are used to perceive it... -- have the impact to give us that special mental herb needed to put things upside down. Paul Wunderlich who became 75 [sic!] this year is one of the few who gets his own museum in his lifetime -- which isn't common business in the art's landscape. His paintings and sculptures are collected by many artists especially by musicians. Tangerine Dream had the honour to write this piece of music on the occasion of the inauguration of his museum on 1st July 2007 in Eberswalde/Germany. For some reason we realized an atmospherical connection to some West African art forms -- that's why this recording is called Bells Of Accra."
