Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music band founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The group has seen many personnel changes over the years, with Froese having been the only continuous member until his death in January 2015; the best-known lineup of the group was its mid-'70s trio of Froese, Christopher Franke, Peter Baumann. In the late 1970s, Johannes Schmoelling replaced Baumann. Since Froese's death in 2015, the group has been under the leadership of Thorsten Quaeschning. Tangerine Dream are considered pioneers of the early days of electronica, their work with the electronic music Ohr label produced albums that had a pivotal role in the development of the German musical scene known as kosmische. Their "Virgin Years", so called because of their association with Virgin Records, produced albums that further explored synthesizers and sequencers, including the UK top 20 albums Phaedra and Rubycon; the group had a successful career composing film soundtracks, creating over 60 scores, which include those for the films Sorcerer, Risky Business, The Keep, Legend, Three O'Clock High, Near Dark, Shy People, Miracle Mile.

From the late 1990s into the 2000s, Tangerine Dream continued to explore other styles of instrumental music as well as electronica. Their recorded output has been prolific, including over one hundred albums. Among other scoring projects, they helped create the soundtrack for the video game Grand Theft Auto V, their mid-1970s work has been profoundly influential in the development of electronic music styles such as new age and electronic dance music. Their most recent album of all-new music, Quantum Gate, was released on 29 September 2017. In December 2019, the band released Recurring Dreams, a compilation of new recordings of some of the band's classic compositions. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Tangerine Dream existed as several short-lived incarnations, all of which included Froese, who teamed up with several musicians from West Berlin's underground music scene, including Steve Jolliffe, Klaus Schulze, Conrad Schnitzler. Froese's most notable association was his partnership with Christopher Franke.

Franke joined Tangerine Dream in 1970 after serving time in the group Agitation Free to replace Schulze as the drummer. Franke is credited with starting to use electronic sequencers, which were introduced on Phaedra, a development that had not only a large impact on the group's music, but to many electronic musicians to this day. Franke stayed with the group for 17 years, leaving in 1987 because of exhausting touring schedules, as well as creative differences with Froese. Other long-term members of the group include Peter Baumann, who went on to found the New Age label Private Music, to which the band was signed from 1988 to 1991. A number of other members were part of Tangerine Dream for shorter periods of time. Unlike session musicians, these players contributed to compositions of the band during their tenures; some of the more notable members are Steve Schroyder, Michael Hoenig, Steve Jolliffe, Klaus Krüger and Ralf Wadephul. Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, Tangerine Dream was joined on stage by Zlatko Perica or Gerald Gradwohl on guitars, Emil Hachfeld on electronic drums.

Jerome Froese left in 2006 after a concert at the Tempodrom in Berlin. Until late 2014, Tangerine Dream comprised Edgar Froese, as well as Thorsten Quaeschning, who first collaborated in the composition of Jeanne d'Arc. For concerts and recordings, they were joined by Linda Spa on saxophone and flute, Iris Camaa on drums and percussion, Bernhard Beibl on guitar. In 2011, electric violinist Hoshiko Yamane was added to the lineup and is featured on some of the most recent albums. In late 2014, Bernhard Beibl announced on his Facebook page that he would stop collaborating with Tangerine Dream. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that Tangerine Dream would no longer be touring with Linda Spa or Iris Camaa, but that Ulrich Schnauss had been brought into the fold. Edgar Froese's death in January 2015, left this a short-lived line-up. Edgar Froese arrived in West Berlin in the mid-1960s to study art, his first band, the psychedelic rock-styled The Ones, disbanded after releasing only one single. After The Ones, Froese experimented with musical ideas, playing smaller gigs with a variety of musicians.

Most of these performances were in the famous Zodiak Free Arts Lab, although one grouping had the distinction of being invited to play for the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. The music was partnered with literature, early forms of multimedia, more, it seemed as though only the most outlandish ideas attracted any attention, leading Froese to comment: "In the absurd lies what is artistically possible." As members of the group came and went, the direction of the music continued to be inspired by the Surrealists, t

Brunei national rugby union team

The Brunei National Rugby Team represents Brunei in international rugby union. They have yet to make their debut at the Rugby World Cup, it is governed by the Brunei Rugby Football Union Rugby Union, played in 105 countries around the world, has been played in Brunei since the 1950s. The Brunei Rugby Football Union was set up in 1977, affiliated to the Rugby Football Union of Twickenham. From on, Brunei sent teams to participate in regional'Sevens' competitions the SCC Sevens in Singapore and the prestigious Hong Kong Sevens. Since joining the Asian Rugby Football Union, the Brunei Rugby Team has taken part in a number of international competitions. Although presently recording a rather unfavourable Win-Loss ratio in the international rugby scene, Brunei rugby is continually improving with efforts being concentrated in the development of youth players through the Under-19 Squad; the Brunei national rugby union team plays in the Asian Rugby Football Union 6th Division along with Indonesia and Laos.

The Under-19 National Rugby Squad of Brunei is seen as a platform from which the Brunei Rugby Football Union seeks to develop young players for the Senior team. The Under-19 squad has played in two Asian Under-19 Rugby Tournaments in Lahore and Taipei, Taiwan respectively; the first Brunei Under-19 Rugby International was played against the Pakistan Under-19 Team at the Fortress Stadium in Lahore. Brunei emerged victorious with a scoreline of 14-5 in their favour - an upset considering the comparative populations and rugby history of the respective countries. Former Fiji National coach George Dreadon Simpkin commented on the impressive pace of the Bruneian backline whilst spectating the encounter; the free-running style of open, fast-paced play has become a trademark of the Bruneian team, although it has come under heavy criticism for sacrificing form and discipline in the favour of quick, energy-consuming tries. The members of the first Brunei Under-19 Squad selected for the 2005 Asian Under-19 Rugby Tournament are as follows: Manager: Stuart Alpe Coaches: Tim Lian, Shafeek Kamalie Players: 1.
