Re-release official promo text:
La-La Land Records and 20th Century Fox present the remastered re-issue of Tangerine Dreamís (SORCERER, THE KEEP, LEGEND, MIRACLE MILE) original score to the 1983 motion picture sci-fi drama WAVELENGTH, starring Robert Carradine, Cherie Currie and Keenan Wynn, and directed by Mike Gray. Electronic musical geniuses Tangerine Dream find the inner-pulse of this overlooked cult gem about a pair of lovers who attempt to rescue innocent, child-like aliens held captive in a secret government installation and help return them to their world. This striking score manages moments of sublime beauty and poetry, even spirituality, while also supporting the filmís quotient of menace and suspense. Previously out-of-print, WAVELENGTH returns in this handsome re-issue sounding better than ever. Produced by Nick Redman and Ford A. Thaxton and remastered by James Nelson, this limited edition of 1500 units also features in-depth, exclusive liners from writer Randall D. Larson and otherworldly art design by Mark Banning.

Tangerine Dream is a name that is well recognised even if the individual members are unknown by the general public. "The Park is Mine" was scored by Edgar Froese, Christoph Franke and Johannes Schmoelling. This was the band roster for the years 1980 to 1985.
The film was released in 1985 but the score was probably composed in 1984. Certain elements within the music have strong comparisons to the band's live album release titled "Poland" from 1984. The music on the "Poland" album was recorded from two concerts given in Poland. Certain distinct rhythm effects, and guitar work by Edgar Froese are present in both releases. The instrumentation used on "The Park is Mine" and the Poland concerts appears to be the same. Every few years the band scraps the instruments they use. This allows the band to be progressive by having the newest equipment on the market and the new distinct sounds that they possess. So, while the band's music style and sound continues to change and evolve, these elements can date any music by them that is released.
The score for the film is heavily sequencer rhythm. This is likely the work of Chris Franke. Chris was the drummer with Agitation Free when he joined Tangerine Dream in 1971 and stayed until 1986. The choice of a strong rhythm based music for the soundtrack was most likely to help create and sustain the tension of the film. An ex-soldier, after taking over New York's Central Park, holds off the police and hired killers so he can make a statement at a prediscribed time. The rhythm based score combined with Froese's guitar shows off one of the more rock style based scores the band has produced. The only other film score that is similar is Michael Mann's "Thief" from 1981. The "Thief" score was also composed by Froese, Franke and Schmoelling.
The music on this recording is taken from the two-track stereo master tapes used for the film. Most notable in the music is the rhythm section which takes priority over other instrumentation. During the film it is the rhythm section that stands out, especially during section where the music volume drops off while actors are talking. The other music elements like guitar and synthesizer are placed in the background. Listeners will note one track comes on very strong and appears to have some distortion. This track was possibly overmodulated when it was mixed for the stereo master tape used on the film and it could not be corrected.
This music, when heard separate of the film, will surely please the listeners of soundtrack music and the legions of fans of Tangerine Dream.
