TANGERINE DREAM NOMINATED FOR GRAMMY AWARD, SAYS LOCAL RECORD LABEL MIRAMAR RECORDINGS

 SEATTLE, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MIRAMAR Recordings, a Seattle-based record label, announced today the Grammy nomination of Tangerine Dream. For the second year in a row, Tangerine Dream is nominated for Best New Age Album by the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences. Their 1992 release, entitled Rockoon, spent 21 weeks on Billboard's top ten New Age chart and, after a total of 37 consecutive weeks, Rockoon continues its chart success into 1993 holding at number 24 for the week of January 9.
 Last year, Tangerine Dream was nominated for their first MIRAMAR release entitled Canyon Dreams. Unfortunately, the group lost their 1992 bid for Best New Age Album to Mannheim Steamroller.
 Edgar Froese formed Tangerine Dream in Berlin in 1967. Two and one half decades later, Edgar is joined by his son Jerome Froese, and Rockoon marks their first full album collaboration. The record, which adds acoustic instruments such as guitar and sax, reflects a departure for the German-based duo who, in the past, were noted solely for their dense, ethereal synthesizer compositions.
 With over 50 albums and 20 soundtracks to their credit, including scores to such hit films as Risky Business, Sorcerer and Thief, Tangerine Dream continues to be recognized as masters of progressive instrumental music.
