TO VANGELIS (1943-2022) – a musical tribute by Steve Law
My new musical tribute to the composer Vangelis, who sadly passed away in 2022.
He was a true pioneer who created new, beautiful and haunting electronic soundscapes. I am sure many composers today can feel his influence. It is a great regret that I never got to meet him and thank him for his music – from one composer to another.
The chorus is adapted from a song I wrote back in 2000. While writing the middle section to its climax, I felt I was expressing feelings and memories of my father Keith who passed away in 2019. So I would like to dedicate this piece to his memory too.
