Greek Music Express: Vangelis: Blade Runner & Orama | 28 May 2024 mentions: “When film director Ridley Scott asked Vangelis to write the score to his upcoming film Blade Runner, contrary to public belief, the use of electronic music was not a deliberate attempt by Vangelis to copy commonly used ideas and sounds as seen in science fiction films. Electronic music was already part of Vangelis’ everyday musical language, and he performed using synthesisers because these instruments allowed him to spontaneously create symphonic works without the aid of session musicians”. Along with the soundtrack for Blade Runner, we listen to the atmospheric music of the Orama album, with the clarinet of Vassilis Saleas in compositions by the great Greek composer.
