"Electronic Meditation" is the debut album by the German electronic music group Tangerine Dream.

Recording and history

The album was recorded in a rented factory in Berlin in October 1969, using just a two-track Revox tape recorder.cite journal|title=Tangerine Dream: Their Changing Use Of Technology Part 1: 1967–1977|url=http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1994_articles/dec94/tangerinedream.html?print=yes|month=December|year=1994|journal=Sound on Sound|accessdate=2007-12-10] Its style is a unique form of free jazz, electronic art music, and instrumental rock; or as "Sound on Sound" magazine described it, "free electronic rock". Its instrumentation ranges from conventional instruments such as the guitar, organ, drums, and cello to various custom-made electronic devices implemented by Edgar Froese and found sounds such as broken glass, burning parchment, and dried peas being shaken in a sieve. The backwards vocals at the end of side two are actually Edgar Froese reading from the back of a ferry ticket from Dover to Calais. The original LP had a balloon inserted in the cover; the 2004 Japan CD release is a copy of the original LP cover and includes the balloon.cite web | last =Berling | first =Michael | url =http://www.vitn.homepage.t-online.de/electron.htm | title =Electronic Meditation | work =Voices in the Net | accessdate =2007-12-19]

"Electronic Meditation" is the only Tangerine Dream album to feature the line-up of Froese, Schulze and Schnitzler. The 2002 CD reissue on Sanctuary Records revealed that there were two previously uncredited musicians: organist Jimmy Jackson and flautist Thomas Keyserling.
