From "Macula Transfer", Edgar Froese will now propose, in his solo albums, material different from what TANGERINE DREAM will be doing. Recorded before "Stratosfear" in summer 1976, this third effort may be the most original from the German pioneer. The compositions are mostly ambient, non-melodic and do not contain many changes. Anyways, Macula Transfer was his third solo album, and the theme was on flight. Each song title is actually an airline flight number. While QUANTAS (actually QANTAS) is a bit obvious, the others aren't: OS is Austrian Airlines, AF is Air France, PA is Pan-Am, and IF is Interflug.

Edgar Willmar Froese (6 June 1944 – 20 January 2015) was a German artist and electronic music pioneer, best known for founding the electronic music group Tangerine Dream. Although his solo and group recordings prior to 2003 name him as "Edgar Froese", his solo albums from 2003 onwards bear the name "Edgar W. Froese".

Macula Transfer is the third solo album released by Tangerine Dream leader Edgar Froese, in 1976. The tracks were composed on plane flights while Tangerine Dream was touring; each track is named after the flight number of an airplane. The original album was released on Brain Records, and has not officially been released on CD. During 1998 the original recording was licensed by Manikin Records and released as a CD; however, this was done without Froese's consent.

I originally bought this album as an import LP back in the 70s. I thought it was an interesting addition to my small Tangerine Dream collection.

Studio album by. Froese subsequently remixed the album, adding newly recorded material to the 1970s recordings.

Edgar Froese's third solo album, Macula Transfer (the title referring to the sun spots), was recorded just before Tangerine Dream's Stratosfear in summer 1976 by Edgar Froese just on his own using an old 4-track Ampex tape machine that Tangerine Dream had bought from Abbey Road Studios. According to Edgar Froese, there were some differences at the time in TD dynamics and Edgar Froese recorded Macula Transfer just for fun. Macula Transfer was released 1976 in Germany only, and furthermore fans had to wait nearly 22 years for the first official CD release of this rare album in 1998
