First Vangelis studio album in 15 years, inspired by ESA’s ground-breaking Rosetta Mission
Vangelis, has composed this piece of music especially for ESA and inspired by the Rosetta mission. Vangelis's music is often linked to themes of science, history and exploration, and he is best known for his Academy Award–winning score for the film Chariots of Fire, composing scores for the films Antarctica, Blade Runner, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and Alexander, and the use of his music in the documentary series Cosmos, by Carl Sagan.
Vangelis said: "Mythology, science and space exploration are subjects that have fascinated me since my early childhood. And they were always connected somehow with the music I write."
To Vangelis, music and art are sacred, basic forces of the universe, their purpose to elevate, inspire and to heal humankind. This is Vangelis' mission, this and his desire to awaken in all of us, perhaps, that place called memory.
Album is about his philosophy, his music, his classic soul in a space world. The album transcends time
