At the passing of Edgar Froese, a number of ambient and electronic musicians expressed interest in doing a tribute project.

The RadHaus US audiophile label has compiled from those artists a collection of works composed in honor of Edgar Froese, in most cases composed specifically for this project. We certainly are not the only ones--his influence is profound, so vast it's difficult to quantify. What we hope sets our project apart a little bit is that it’s being released as an audiophile project, with very high-resolution audio, and that all proceeds are going to benefit Dr. Bob's SoundSchool (moogfoundation.org/projects/dr-bobssoundschool/)

We broadcast a number of the tracks on a special edition of “At Water’s Edge”, called “Legacy and Evolution: A Tribute to Edgar Froese” (also the name of the compilation). Pictures for the program were supplied by Wolf Red, who was fortunate to be one of the stage photographers for Tangerine Dream’s performance at the 2008 Loreley Festival. You can find this broadcast archive at awe.fm/AWE-EFtrib

This compilation comprises over four and a half (4.5) hours of music, all of it incredibly high quality. This is a fitting tribute, we believe, to a musician who has in so many ways influenced nearly all of the electronic music we hear now and in the future.

“There is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address."
-Edgar Froese

Michelle Moog-Koussa wrote a lovely reflection for this release (thank you, Michelle!):

"In 2011, I had the opportunity to interview Edgar Froese about his connection to Bob Moog. He spoke eloquently about the profound nature of Moog’s impact on his work, “It is immense. Without Bob´s very early inventions of a voltage-controlled filter curve or the option of fine-tuning all intervals up to adjustable envelope shapes (just to name a very few), the modern ability to structure sound would be unthinkable.” He stated emphatically that the deep capability of Moog's inventions had yet to be truly explored even 50 years after their release. Not everyone grasps the profound philosophical underpinnings of the Moog synthesizer, but Edgar certainly did.

"The Bob Moog Foundation is grateful and humbled to be the beneficiary of an album paying tribute to one of the most visionary electronic artists of the 20th century. Many thanks to all involved."

-- Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director, the Bob Moog Foundation
