is a collaborative
effort by fans and members of the tadream mailing list to remaster and
distribute live TD music. We get the best of the best fan recordings and
apply the most modern remastering technologies with amazing results. Our
purpose is to evangelize Tangerine Dream and bring in new Tangerine Dream
fans, as well as help old fans rediscover TD. We operate under the tacit
approval of Tangerine Dream and TDI music under the conditions that it
is expressly not for profit (see below). Out of respect for TD, we will
enforce adherence to the rules set forth.
If you have broadband internet and a CD burner, see our FTP instructions
to download the Trees much faster than you could conduct a postal-based
- TDI took
note of the quality and popularity of the Tangerine Tree Project product,
and began releasing them officially through Sanctuary Records. The first
set, entitled 'Bootleg Box 1' and others are available from Groove
, and the one that will
be most vigorously enforced: this entire effort is to be conducted on
a non-profit basis only. This includes the effort and time that you
put into the process. This is all a friendly, emphatically non-commercial
thing between fans, and if you are not willing to donate your time and
effort into the process then you shouldn't participate. This rule precludes
the sale of this work for money in perpetutity. Note that if you try
to sell anything produced in this tree effort on ebay.com or by any
other means, we will cooperate fully with TDI to pursue, prosecute and
litigate to the fullest extent possible. We will be watching out for
this, and many of our members are in ebay searching for TD stuff all
the time, so you will likely get caught! Now that that's out of the
way, let's have fun:
Many current Tadream
List members who already posses the Trees have expressed their eagerness
to get the official BBox, not only for the following benefits, but to
help the band financially. We encourage you to do so, as well.
- The BBox CDs are made with commercial-grade CD stock, on professional-grade
production equipment - not copied to CDR in someone's basement.
Therefore Sanctuary's BBox CDs should last longer, and be much less
likely to have errors.
- Jerome Froese has applied TDI's special DQC Mastering
System to enhance overall sound quality.
- A tree consists of branches and leaves. Branches can make copies;
Leaves just receive.
NOTE: and distribution is underway. To obtain
a copy, please contact someone on the participant's
list, or ask someone to contact you OFFLIST on tadream.
Note: There may be as many as 15 disks per set. Please
do not volunteer to branch unless you can turn copies for your recipients
Indicate the following in your e-mail:
- your name
- your e-mail
- your location
- leaf or branch?
- if branch, then how many leaves will you support?
- which format(s)? (see FORMAT section)
- Note also that we are in release volume 4 of the Tree currently. If
you cannot obtain the older volume version SHN files via download,
or prefer to trade directly with someone, you may contact a participant
of a former volume directly through the Participant's List links above.
(Note that this is a completely separate tree project than Dreamwatchers'
Tales - Fable II - Visions of the Watchgirl)
