Peter Baumann discusses his new album Machines of Desire, and his long career in and outside music. From 1971 to 1977 Peter Baumann was part of what many consider to be the definitive line-up of German electronic music pioneers Tangerine Dream, contributing to classic albums such as Phaedra, Rubycon, and Ricochet. Although he continued to record for several years thereafter, much of his subsequent activity has revolved around socio-political realms.
Since the early 2000s, Peter has devoted much of his time to studying and promoting initiatives in science and philosophy that shed light on the human condition. This has included work with the California Institute of Integral Studies, the Mind and Life Institute, and his own Baumann Foundation. In 2011 he co-authored the book Ego: The Fall of the Twin Towers and the Rise of an Enlightened Humanity, before finally returning to music in 2016 with Machines of Desire, his first full album since 1983.
