Vangelis Rosetta Album Preview


Academy Award winning composer & synthesist Vangelis has a new album on the way, Rosetta.

The album is inspired by the Rosetta Mission, a ground-breaking project by the European Space Agency [ESA] to land a probe on a comet, for the first time in history. Vangelis has composed a suite of music to mark the culmination of the 12-year mission, in September 2016.

“Mythology, science and space exploration are subjects that have fascinated me since my early childhood,” notes Vangelis. “And they were always connected somehow with the music I write.”


This video features a 15-minute preview of Vangelis’s Rosetta album, accompanied with some fantastic views of him at work in his studio, footage captured by the probe, and people from the ESA sharing how Vangelis’s music has inspired them.

Rosetta is scheduled for release Sept 30 and is available to pre-order on Amazon and udiscovermusic.

    1. Those are: Remote Preset selector boxes.


      To quote Bill Marshall, the guy who designed them: “They are to do with organisation mostly so that whatever sound he wants at any point is available to him in the right place on the right keyboard, transposed to whatever he wishes.” There are 14 such little white boxes. Each corresponds to one part, and has a mechanical rotating display (seen at the beginning of the video). The display has 3 faces, each representing one bank. Each bank can have 10 presets.
