    1. John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Henri Mancini, Hans Zimmer are in AWE of the cuddly V.
      They can’t comprehend how V composes improvisationally plays on the spot whilst watching a movie : because they can’t do this.
      They can’t comprehend V can’t write nor read music.

      As cuddly V said : “We just have to be available like a radar for the Universe to speak through us.”

  1. What, no piano version of “Pulstar??” I’m outraged! I look forward to this, because piano work shows you a very different side of the composer. Wakeman has always been a big synth player, but he has a section of fans who mainly go for his solo piano pieces. Vangelis has always been the chief *romantic* synth player of the lot anyway. This will be a nice specialty moment.

  2. Oh what ever, I have no expectations, but the name alone suggests perhaps a Chopin -esque type music, which I’m gonna love if true.

  3. Will be saving my money for the huge Tangerine Dream boxset full of unreleased Virgin Years stuff, with 5.1 and stereo remixes by Steven Wilson. This is the real deal

  4. Looking forward to this, hopefully it will be mic’d up and mixed similar in style to Memories Of Green with tons of reverb instead of a cold sounding MIDI piano…

  5. Boooooooooriiiiiiing!!!! “New” music that sounds old. Nice commercial music without substance. We can even call it cocktail music. Anyone can hear the difference in Vangelis music before and after El Greco, and after it´s just terrible…that´s the ugly truth despite some Vangelis fans want to deny it…
