Here it is – the Vangelis Blade Runner cover that will make you weep.
This is the first time I’ve seen someone really nail the lushness and quirkiness of Vangelis’ soundtrack for Blade Runner. It’s not an exact sonic match, but it’s extremely close, it’s live, it sounds great and and it’s a very musical performance, too.
Give it a listen, crank it up and let me know what you think!
Gear-geek details below.
The Stars of this video are the ESQ 1 for the Cs80 brass leads and the Juno 6 for it’s authentic sounding electronic beeps. The bells and percussion from the Korg x5 and Juno G. Microkorg on strings.
Really enjoyed this and amazing how a few affordable synths can re-create the unique bladerunner sound.
