R.I.P. Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou
« on: May 24, 2022, 10:53:07 AM »
AKA Vangelis.
Seems like I may be the only one who was saddened at his loss. I first found him (along with Demis Roussos!!) in the prog rock band 'Aphrodite's Child' and still possess their double vinyl album '666'
Next experience of his music was his collaborations with Jon Anderson of 'Yes' so stuff by 'Jon & Vangelis' was released. He created some incredible film music and was the master of electronic music. The obvious ones are 'Chariots of Fire' and 'Blade Runner', and it's the latter's love theme that has a special place in my heart.
Gone but not forgotten :(

@Newportnobby

Moose also saddened by his death.  :(

He was a great composer and one of Moose's inspirations when it came to electronic music (along with the late Isao Tomita, a Japanese composer).

Yes and I've still got it. Must blow the dust off and give it a spin.
