Description
This is mainly a tribute to the great artist Vangelis. I loved all his music from the simple piano to soundtracks to his contemporary styles. He is a master of composing, arranging and creating influential music in my life. This is my version of a track that would possibly be on one of his soundtrack albums. Hope you enjoy! All feedback is greatly appreciated.

These are the dreams I imagine that Roy the Nexus6 series android in the movie BladeRunner has before his time passed.

Bladerunner
is one of my favorite Vangelis sountracks. This is a
stunning tribute, nuanced in wonderful detail--the slide
in pitch at the end of some phrases, the bright synth bells,
the thunder, all reminded me of that rainy, urban
landscape the movie was drenched in.

Let me repeat, this is stunning. But, you already know how
I feel about your music. Thanks for posting this.

Bladerunner
Thanks Tom!

BR is also one my favorite all time flicks. This piece started out as something
totally different. As I was crafting it out the influence I spoke of just came out
and I knew I had to dedicate this to the man that has influenced my music.

Appreciate your comments as always.

lovely
You did an excellent job of creating an original sounding piece of music that would fit seamlessly into the Bladerunner soundtrack. You captured his style perfectly and without just rehashing one of his pieces. Absolutely beautiful. The bells that come in later really struck my soul. So many wonderful things happen in this piece.

It's great to see that people still appreciate an artist I admire as well.

The greatest thing for me in music is the layering of textures to create the
soundscape. The sonic bells is a wonderful accent to this piece and I'm glad it
touched you as well.

Appreciate your comments.

Sensational
Words cannot express the mastery you've created here.
My entire being is swept to a different realm. You've
captured the very essence of Vangelis..yet with your very
own soul....I admire all your work...thanks for sharing it
with us. What a delight!

Sensational
When younger I remember being swept away many time by his works. When
movies like BR/Antarctica/Legends and the Bounty were released I was
hooked once again and now with imagery.

Thank you for listening and for your comments Syncopatient!

Take care!

Cripes almighty!
Wow, that's quite a piece of work! Gotta' throw a 6 down
for creativity as it's VERY Vangelis, with hints of departure.
But everything else I give a 10.

I love the rich synth sounds of Vangelis and you captured
that completely.

Faved and Downloaded.

Not to sound over gracious but I am honored that you like this piece and have
commented on it. I really appreciate it packosmokes. I admire your work and
have a deep respect for your talent.

I tend to feel a little of me came through in some parts which I am glad. I
have captured somewhat the essence of his feel but will never match the love
and devotion especially composing/programing/ and recording of his works.
I'm only glad that finally I can make a tribute that people from all over can
enjoy :)

Thanks again!

So human
Your open voicings and carefully placed washes, judicious
layering and sense of variation have created a luscious yet
melancholy work of beauty. As if from someone who has
a great deal of trouble letting go of memory, who carries
the weight of meaning forward and finds nourishment
from this. And thru it all, a sense that you played
everything, that it is performed instead of computed,
which makes it so human you forget the sounds are
synthetic. Excellent. Bravo.

Cameron said 5037 days ago (February 23rd, 2005)
excellent tribute
Your piece is very reminiscent of Vangelis' work and you
should be very proud of the similarity.

Vangelis is one of my very favorite artists, too. He is a
master of expression and detail, and is one of the few
composers who makes synthesized instruments sound
like a real symphony orchestra. His work with more
"synthesized" textures is wonderful as well. His artistry is
an inspiration for you, obviously.

As in all the pieces of yours I've heard so far, this one has
that same mood of melancholy, pensiveness, and
introspection. It's perfect for "chilling", getting in touch
with one's emotions, taking a deep breath and allowing
this noisy, fast-paced world slide by unnoticed for a few
precious moments.

There were only a couple of spots where this piece
seemed to sort of "float" without any direction; my ears
wanted to hear some kind of linear movement. But this is
a very small thing in view of the overall excellence of this
track -- in concept, production and performance.

The Korg synths used on this track had a wonderful
sound. Were any of them an M1, by chance? I have one
back at my home in Arizona, and might dust it off again
after hearing this great track.

excellent tribute
Most of my pieces are somewhat sad in nature due to my recent past. It is
great to actually read another persons comments that actually says it, it
shows you are in tune with the artist. I mentioned the fact that this piece
started out as something different, it could explain the loss of direction for
those few moments. Thank you Cameron for listening and for your
comments.

No M1 keys were used just the Trinity V3pro and the Triton 1st generation
keys.

Nice melody and Vangelic atmosphere. I could
imagine this in Bladerunner...it also reminded me of
Twin Peaks. Well done.

In a recent...
conversation on one of the forum threads we were discussing music that took you on a journey. You have a knack for creating songs that do just that. This song conjures visual imagery and is a professional presentation. I'm a fan of the movie bladerunner. Very intricate melodies. Thx for sharing it.

Big Fan...
...of Vangelis (and this song). My two youngest children
were raised falling to sleep listening to the "Blade Runner"
soundtrack! This composition is very well done.

Blade Runner is my favorite movie! Roy would be proud of
you.
