Sunday Synth Jam: This improvisation, by Michael Daniels, is titled Vangelis’ Approach, inspired not just by Vangelis‘ sound, but also by his approach to recording:
“approach” referring to Vangelis method of recording/composing/performing. First section is based on the track “horizon” , the second section is my own little comp. inspired by the first part.
I read somewhere that Vangelis would improvise and record different pieces of music at nemo , then “stitch” them together in the recording process, knowing exactly what he wanted to achieve as the end result. He really is the master at it.
Here I played live as much as possible, then added some extra little phrases after on a multitrack. A much more enjoyable way of making music than fiddling with a computer:)
Remember Vangelis did not have midi when he recorded some of his most beautiful pieces of music. I hope this inspires anyone thinking of starting music production
