LOOM is a progressive electronic group formed by Jerome Froese (son of Edgar Froese, founder of Tangerine Dream) and Johannes Schmoelling, both former members of Tangerine Dream. Robert Waters rounds out the three-piece LOOM band. LOOM’s style reflects the tradition of Tangerine Dream, with the injection of modern sound created by Jerome Froese’s guitar playing and electronica influences. LOOM performs live throughout Europe.

ComfirtablyNumm signals Pink Floyd is still vibrant and part of my music background. Tangerine Dream, a sound experience a beloved one wanted to share with me, goes the next level. It’s more electro in pure form, and in its finesse it outleagues techno. The first morning of going off daylight saving time, the one morning we are quietly awarded an extra hour, I awoke and began listening to LOOM. I was blown away. And ComfirtablyNumm, a connesuir of electronic composition, is extremely generous with this post. I will be listening to it for days.
Thank you for your very thoughtful comments. Glad you are enjoying the music!
