Anyone who has played Grand Theft Auto knows that music is a huge part of its experience. I guess there’s just something about listening to good music while running over pedestrians that adds to the ambiance. The soundtrack for GTA V features all kinds of tracks by artists like Flying Lotus, Twin Shadow, and MF Doom for the game’s “driving around” music, but the background ambient tracks are composed by German ambient pioneers Tangerine Dream.
Tangerine Dream have been making music since the ’60s. The fact they’re still making music
and are not dead is nothing short of remarkable (Ed Note: see below). Even if you’re not familiar with them by name, you’ve definitely heard their music. They’ve scored soundtracks for films like Risky Business, Legend, and Firestarter. But for GTA, they boldly crossed over into the world of video games.
