TANGRAM // Peter Fabok

PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC & AMBIENT

Hungarian electronic musician Peter Fabok has been dishing out a steady stream of ambient / electronica / synthwave albums since 2005 (32 LP/EP).
His stage name Tangram obviously points a finger in Tangerine Dream's general direction, and when you then start diving into this man's, by now, vast discography - there is indeed an emphasis on the melodically enhanced, breezy early 80's material from the original pioneers of the genre.
Tangram was a supporting band for Tangerine Dream, Ulrich Schnauss and Loom at their Budapest concerts. He was nominated for Schallwelle Awards (2011, 2012 - best international album, best international artist).
Tangram had 35+ live events in Hungary (Sziget Fesztivál, A38, Cokxpon Ambient Cafe etc)

I suppose not everyone of you knows that I am a programmer in my weekdays. I wanted to create a generative music for focusing so I programmed a “relaxing music generator” and made some test with it.
