TangerineDream

Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music band founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The band collaborated with The Alchemist, Woody Jackson, Oh No, DJ Shadow and METZ to produce various tracks for the Grand Theft Auto V Official Score.

Tangerine Dream[]

Tangerine Dream produced various tracks in Grand Theft Auto V which can play during Wanted Levels of 3 stars or more, Missions or during random events.

Each of the tracks are separated by stem in the files, allowing the game to increase or decrease the intensity of the score as the mission or event flows.

Note: Soundtracks linked courtesy of GTA V Score.

The Cinematographic Score[]

TheCinematographicScore-GTAV-Cover

Tangerine Dream's Cinematographic Score of GTA V.

The score for the groundbreaking game GTA 5 was based on the merging of four different artist inputs, a procedure the music supervisor of the game had to follow. Finally it worked perfectly for the game. What has been left out, necessarily to give the game a needed sound dress in its abstract form, is the so-called cinematographic score. Here you will find the music without any other information from the game itself. It’s the pure musical environment composed and played solely by Tangerine Dream. Maybe you will recognize a tune or rhythm here and there, but everything is built in the dress of sequencer lines and melodies as it was composed in the first place. This special edition is LIMITED to 2000 copies - for our diehard fans - and will not hit the major shops anywhere.

GTA V: Official Score Volume 2[]

Many of Tangerine Dream's collaborative scores are featured on The Music of Grand Theft Auto V Volume 2: The Score, including Vacuum and Dragoner. On this album, they are also named differently to their in-game file names and the names that appear on the Cinematographic Score album.

Rockstar Editor[]

Some of Tangerine Dream's songs appear in the Rockstar Editor in the enhanced version. They appear under the Urban category of Score Tracks.
