    This is very sad. Strangely, I just mentioned these guys a couple of days ago for the first time in years when my boss brought in some tangerines.

    Groundbreaking in their time. Some wild light shows.

    Was really into them from Stratosfear through Le Park. A friend of mine said it sounded like cabin music for a space ship. Very talented, innovative and cerebral. Sad to hear about Froese. God's speed.

    Appropriately I was listening to a live version of "Chroronzon" when I read he died.

    Edgar was a true Artist in every sense of the word.
    This is a tragic loss on many levels.

    Fortunately he left us with an enormous body of work to explore and enjoy.

    Wasn't into TD long term or in a big way really,but enjoyed what I have heard.
    Did get to see them live in Ottawa in the 80's , great show .

    Wow.

    Sad news.

    I spent a lot of time chillin' to old school electronic music back in my 80s college days.

    Here's my personal tribute to my favorite European synth dudes:

    Sadly, never got to see TD live, but I did listen to them a lot in college in
    the 80's and they helped me relieve a lot of stress in college.

    Such a shame, I was just watching 'Sorcerer' last weekend and really enjoying his music. What a great talent he was, RIP.

    Sorry to hear this, I really liked them. Even my Dad liked Stratosfear. I'm grateful for what he gave the world.

    Their goodness has a good effect.
