All'arrivo del Medioevocirca mezzo millennio dopo, i codici - di foggia e costruzione in tutto simili al libro moderno - rimpiazzarono il rotolo e furono composti principalmente di pergamena. Quattro son troppi? Anche nei suoi distici, Marziale continua a citare il codex: un anno prima del suddetto, una raccolta di distici viene pubblicata con lo scopo di accompagnare donativi. Questa mole composta da numerosi fogli contiene quindici libri poetici del Nasone».
Dal II secolo a. Nel mondo antico non godette di molta fortuna a causa del prezzo elevato rispetto a quello del papiro. Il libro in forma di rotolo consisteva in fogli preparati da fibre di papiro phylire disposte in uno strato orizzontale lo strato che poi riceveva la scrittura sovrapposto ad uno strato verticale la faccia opposta.
La scrittura era effettuata su colonne, generalmente sul lato del papiro che presentava le fibre orizzontali. Non si hanno molte testimonianze sui rotoli di pergamena tuttavia la loro forma era simile a quella dei libri in papiro. Gli inchiostri neri utilizzati erano a base di nerofumo e gomma arabica.
Dal II secolo d. La vecchia forma libraria a rotolo scompare in ambito librario. In forma notevolmente differente permane invece in ambito archivistico.
Questo mezzo, permettendo l'accelerazione della produzione delle copie di testi contribuisce alla diffusione del libro e della cultura.
Altri suoi distici rivelano che tra i regali fatti da Marziale c'erano copie di Virgiliodi Cicerone e Livio. Le parole di Marziale danno la distinta impressione che tali edizioni fossero qualcosa di recentemente introdotto. Detect (2) - Grandiose (Vinyl) stati rinvenuti "taccuini" contenenti fino a dieci tavolette.
Nel tempo, furono anche disponibili modelli di lusso fatti con tavolette di avorio invece che di legno. Ai romani va il merito di aver compiuto questo passo essenziale, e devono averlo fatto alcuni decenni prima della fine del I secolo d. Il grande vantaggio che offrivano rispetto ai rolli era la capienza, vantaggio che sorgeva dal fatto che la facciata esterna del rotolo era lasciata in bianco, vuota.
Il codice invece aveva scritte entrambe le facciate di ogni pagina, come in un libro moderno. La prima pagina porta il volto del poeta. I codici di cui parlava erano fatti di pergamena ; nei distici che accompagnavano il regalo di una copia di Omeroper esempio, Marziale la descrive come fatta di "cuoio con molte pieghe". Ma copie erano anche fatte di fogli di papiro.
Quando i greci ed i romani disponevano solo del rotolo per scrivere libri, si preferiva usare il papiro piuttosto che la pergamena. I ritrovamenti egiziani ci permettono di tracciare il graduale rimpiazzo del rotolo da parte del codice. Fece la sua comparsa in Egitto non molto dopo il tempo di Marziale, nel II secolo d. Il suo debutto fu modesto. A tutt'oggi sono stati rinvenuti 1. Verso il d.
I ritrovamenti egiziani gettano luce anche sulla transizione del codex dal papiro alla pergamena. Sebbene gli undici codici della Bibbia datati in quel secolo fossero papiracei, esistono circa 18 codici dello stesso secolo con scritti pagani e quattro di questi sono in pergamena.
Non ne scegliemmo alcuno, ma ne raccogliemmo altri otto per i quali gli diedi dracme in conto. Il codex tanto apprezzato da Marziale aveva quindi fatto molta strada da Roma. Nel terzo secolo, quando tali codici divennero alquanto diffusi, quelli di pergamena iniziarono ad essere popolari. In breve, anche in Egittola fonte mondiale del papiroil codice di pergamena occupava una notevole quota di mercato. Sono tutti di pergamena, edizioni eleganti, scritti in elaborata calligrafia su sottili fogli di pergamena.
Per tali edizioni di lusso il papiro era certamente inadatto. In almeno un'area, la giurisprudenza romanail codex di pergamena veniva prodotto sia in edizioni economiche che in quelle di lusso.
La caduta dell'Impero romano nel V secolo d. Il papiro divenne difficile da reperire a causa della mancanza di contatti con l' Antico Egitto e la pergamenache per secoli era stata tenuta in secondo piano, divenne il materiale di scrittura principale. I monasteri continuarono la tradizione scritturale latina dell' Impero romano d'Occidente. La tradizione e lo stile dell' Impero romano predominavano ancora, ma gradualmente emerse la cultura del libro medievale.
I monaci irlandesi introdussero la spaziatura tra le parole nel VII secolo. L'innovazione fu poi adottata anche nei Paesi neolatini come l'Italiaanche se non divenne comune prima del XII secolo.
Si ritiene che l'inserimento di spazi tra le parole abbia favorito il passaggio dalla lettura semi-vocalizzata a quella silenziosa. Prima dell'invenzione e della diffusione del torchio tipograficoquasi tutti i libri venivano copiati a mano, il che li rendeva costosi e relativamente rari.

Oliver Stone disclosed a big scoop today on Facebook, casually mentioning he will be in Paris with Vangelis, who scores the music for his upcoming documentary on nuclear energy. It took longer 1. A lot of new science involved. Should be ready early next year. Decca has just released the second single for Vangelis' upcoming "Juno To Jupiter" album.
The track is titled "Inside Our Perspectives". Universal has just launched its web site for Vangelis' upcoming Juno To Jupiter album. It allows you to select an angle on Jupiter to create custom artwork for your own Vangelis Spotify playlist. The album will be available on CD and digital formats, with vinyl and a limited edition box set to follow. The work, inspired by NASA 's ground-breaking mission by the Detect (2) - Grandiose (Vinyl) space probe and its ongoing exploration of Jupiter, is a multi-dimensional musical journey featuring the voice of opera superstar Angela Gheorghiu.
The album includes sounds from the Juno launch event on earth, from the probe and its surroundings and Juno's subsequent journey that have been sent back to earth from the probe, which continues to study Jupiter and its moons: million miles away from the earth at its closest point.
The Juno mission, one of NASA's most challenging and scientifically ambitious planetary missions ever attempted, is named so after Hera in Roman Junowho, according to Greek mythology, was the mother of Gods and humans and the wife of Zeus, in Roman Jupiter, who was the father of Gods and humans.
In order to hide his mischiefs, Jupiter drew a veil of clouds around himself. Similarly the Juno spacecraft is looking beneath the clouds revealing the planet's structure and history and how our solar system has been formed.
This July marks the five-year anniversary of the Juno spacecraft's orbit insertion at Jupiter. Due to its importance the mission that primarily was scheduled to be completed 31st of this July, has been extended by NASA and now Juno will continue exploring the full Jovian system - Jupiter and its moons - until September Vangelis, a pioneer in electronic music, with his ever expanding imagination and innovative experimentations, is the one that, as no other, has made the perfect blending between the acoustic and electronic world.
His orchestrations for this new album expand once again the horizons of electronic music by blurring the line between it and acoustic symphonic music which culminate in a breath-taking and in the same time soothing musical journey.
Vangelis' characteristic use of synthesizers, bold brass riffs and expansive strings convey a sense of mystery about life beyond our own world, and commemorate all those who have dealt and still deal with the observation and the exploration of the stars, the planets and the Universe; and who have dedicated their lives to understanding the final frontier and the secrets of our solar system.
This is the case in so many films that Vangelis has scored, and is again true for Juno to Jupiter which provides a new dimension to our connection with nature and humanity's quest to reach out beyond Earth and touch the part of us that is present throughout the solar system and beyond. Vangelis, without formal training, began playing piano at the age of four and by age six was giving public performances of his own compositions - his natural gift coming from a place he calls memory - a place he says we can all tap into if we can only remember.
Vangelis' music is often linked to themes of science, history and exploration. Vangelis also collaborated with the European Space Agency ESA on his album Rosetta to mark the culmination of the Rosetta Mission to land a probe on a comet for the first time in history, as well as for the broadcasting by ESA into space of his CD single dedicated to the late Professor Stephen Hawking, as a mark of respect and remembrance.
Also, the International Astronomical Union's Minor Planet Center at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory named the Asteroid which is located between Jupiter and Mars "Vangelis" in his honour, due to the international impact and appreciation of his work as well as his rapport with the Universe.
It is not often that an Oscar-winning and not only composer is inspired to write music about space. So, the Juno mission has had its public impact multiplied by the unique talent of Vangelis' music. This libretto is a continuation of the Juno story Vangelis' position and strongest wish is that we shouldn't forget that Space, Universe, Cosmos, in whichever name we call it, is our hope and future and we need to be careful not to make the same mistakes in space that we constantly made in our planet, as it is the only chance we have - our future.
Vinyl and a limited-edition box set to follow. An observation, the coverart has slightly changed since last year's listings: Angela Gheorghiu's name has been added, labeled "Soprano, as Juno". Something to look forward to: There will be a thick beautiful [Note: Corrected, early count was spreads, not pages! The booklet is full of photographs of Jupiter, the cosmos, the NASA teams, Greek mythology and a great many never before released photographs of Vangelis, Gheorghiu and other people involved in the album.
It also contains textual contributions from Vangelis, Angela Gheorghiu and others. Expect the official announcement by Decca here around CET, but life is faster than press releases.
Both Spotify and Apple music Best check your favorite digital music resource as well have the first single for Vangelis upcoming new album "Juno To Supiter" available at this very moment. Apple lists a release date for the rest of the album as September An update with official information expected tomorrow morning, both here and through official channels. Check back then! Vangelis continues to support NASA's Juno project, this time with a nearly four minute long origial score for the video of Juno's latest 34th!
Similar to earlier Juno video releases, the music is unique for this occasion, and not a part of the upcoming Juno album release that we're all still anticipating. In celebration of tomorrow's Earth Day, Vangelis has something special to share. Space Rocks is ESA's celebration of space exploration and the art, music, and culture it inspires, mostly manifested on their YouTube channel and presented on other social media.
NASA uploaded a new video with an original score by Vangelis. Scientists at NASA's Juno Mission made a possible new discovery linking the source of the Zodiac light observed on Earth with Martian dust, and not as always thought from dust of asteroids.
The video is accompanied by a new piece of Vangelis music. See the video at the link below. Recorded in and released in an extremely limited quantity, this set was expected to be a pre-release item, with a general release to follow shortly.
The set was exclusively handed out to invited guests at a private event in Paris, as described in our June 1 update and then Now, quote unexpectedly the box set seems to have become available for sale to the general public, sold through a dedicated web site.
The project seems to be related to the Starmus Festival for science and arts, which will be hosted in Armenia in While we wait for the release of Vangelis' new album "Juno to Jupiter" currently set for a December 11 releaseNASA has just released a new video from the space mission the album celebrated and honors. The footage is a reconstruction of what actual video footage of a Jupiter fly-by would look like, based on 41 still photographs taken by the spacecraft.
As with the other videos released by the Juno mission, the music is not actually among the upcoming album's compositions and will probably only ever be heard in this video.
Sources close to Vangelis have informed us that release dates for both physical and digital versions of Vangelis' upcoming album "Juno To Jupiter" are being rescheduled to a later date. Exact release dates are to be confirmed. Things are moving quickly, on the upcoming new Vangelis album "Juno To Jupiter". While the release by Universal label Decca is not actually imminent, yesterday a website called OperaWire.
Erroneously that is. Such digital release will actually take place on September 25th. Thus this announcement is not accurate and probably due to some inadvertence. More importantly, Prestomusic is selling music online, claiming that this is the music of the "Juno to Jupiter" album, without knowing this is the actual music by Vangelis. Fans need to be alerted not to buy this product; and the ones who have already obtained it are advised to demand their money back, as the official release is going to take place on September 25 Vangelis and his legal and artistic team warn the fans that they don't know the exact nature of this music, although indeed the track list is correct.
Vangelis' team declares that they reserve their rights to claim any damages that have been made to them and ask fans and audiences to refrain from purchasing the music from Prestomusic, in light of the above. Let's not completely ignore the good news: Reactions among fans who purchased the album are generally very good. Exciting new music that covers the NASA mission with class, while avoiding most of the usual space music clichees, even if those would have been clichees Vangelis himself single handedly invented, once upon a time in music history.
Follow the link below. Today I am going to tell you what I had in my heart but I never had the opportunity to express it to you. I always wanted to tell you when I heard from the very first time your music that I immediately understood your immense talent, your sense of melody and your innate capacity to touch directly with your music the soul of the people. And I have to thank you for that. I am sure that by now you travel to the place where harmony and music were born.
And I hope that Detect (2) - Grandiose (Vinyl) makes you very content. The release of Vangelis' new Juno mission album is coming closer. The album puts a spotlight on NASA's Juno mission: A space probe sent out to the planet Jupiter, currently still orbiting said planet for continued surveillance and research.
Our sources close to Vangelis confirm her involvement. She sings wordless melodies to music performed by Vangelis there is no orchestra on this album. According to our reliable sources the initial release of the album will be in digital form only: Download, streaming, etc.
Gheorgiu mentions a July release but it could be later than that. It will be accompanied by a web site. Separately, later this year, a special physical release including a CD will follow, which will be accompanied by a book about Jupiter, the mission, mythology Zeus is the Greek equivalent of Roman god Jupiterincluding some recent photographs of Vangelis, etc.
I decided, along with many other individuals from all over the World to participate in this book, to musically contribute in the project and help the endeavour of Mr. Yannick Monget and Symbion Editions, due to its matter subject. So, another chance for new music through this ambitious project. Yannick Monget is an artist who digitally generates landscapes that show our potential future.
He has just started a crowdfunding campaign to finance the release of a significant new book, where he collaborates with scientists, philosophers, explorers, Nobel Prize laureates, heads of State, representatives of indigenous communities from every continent, dozens of names known for their commitment to the environment and the promotion of peace. They have joined in the elaboration of this book and directly participate in its writing by sharing their own vision of the future, their warnings as well as their messages of hope.
Not many details have Detect (2) - Grandiose (Vinyl) released about Vangelis' contribution, except that it will indeed be musical in nature. Our reliable sources, close to Vangelis explain that Vangelis will compose something inspire by this book to accompany the images.
They confirm that this will in some way be part of the book release, although the actual shape or technology for the included music will be determined when the project is closer to completion. Given that the kickstarter campaign mentions both a first edition and a deluxe version of the book, be sure that the musical part will be a part of any version of the release.
Special thanks to Carl Deseyn for sharing the Angela Gheorghiu interview. Thanks also to Rob Waters and all the other readers who alerted us to the interviews. And apologies for the delay. Astana Opera's Principal Soloist Maira Mukhamedkyzy performed a new cover version of Montserrat Caballe and Vangelis collaboration "The Prayer", and in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan shared it in a video dedicated to all healthcare workers in the world.
Upon release on CD the track was titled " The Prayer". As the Easter festive starts in the orthodox part of the world ERT, Greece's public TV channel has scheduled a 3 hour live show for Sunday afternoon tomorrow, at the time of writing this to share the unusual locked-down easter celebration in the Covid virus era. Vangelis will contribute by sharing a short video message. Conveniently, the video can be viewed at your own discretion, as it will be available for one week, not as a live stream, but as a temporary normal video.
Prokopis Pavlopoulos, the previous president of the Greek republic has recently granted Vangelis the title "Grand Commander of the Order of the Phoenix". The physical decoration has yet to be presented in an official ceremony, delayed due to international Covid related restrictions.
This honor is awarded for "excellence in the public sphere or raising Greece's international standing". By special announcement from the production company of the Vangelis scored dance performance "The Thread":. However, we are giving an online appointment on Friday, April 17th, at YouTube: www. Although not specifically mentioned, this seems be a "live stream".
So even though it shows a previously recorded event, you may need to sit and watch at that specific time, as if you visit the performance in a theater. Or London time. We'll report in more detail when the details are more clear. Things have changed a lot since our last update, and it feels like a completely different world, now that the Covid virus hits countries all over the world.
Barilla is the Italian pasta and food brand that ran a series of advertisements throughout the eighties and nineties, each with a cover version of Vangelis' Hymn, centering around the slogan: Where there is Barilla, there is home.
Now that Italy is so badly hurt by the virus and the country comes together figuratively in many different ways, Barilla revived the Hymn format in an inspirational Corona era ode and thank you to Italy. Vangelis instantly gave his official consent, Barilla commissioned a new acoustic version of Hymn from arranger Sizzer and the legendary Sophia Loren read the beautiful lines to thank and honor Italy for enduring its heartships.
The video went absolutely viral on-line, with many millions of views on the various platforms it's featured on. As for the question many fans are left with: How is Vangelis doing in these turbulent times? We managed to get some welcome feedback from our reliable sources. They report that Vangelis is very well and in a very creative mood. There is good hope that it will be released very soon. Apparently there are two other projects he is still working on, but lips are still tightly sealed on what they may be.
A re-issue on vinyl has been put out by Telephone Explosion with permission from Cobalt Music of the album "Mariangela" by Mariangela Celeste. The album originally released in with Vangelis arranging, producing and performing his synths had become a rarity and became quite popular among Vangelis aficionados.
It's nice to see this released for a new generation, although some report that the audio quality of the original LP was better than the new one. Albedo 0. Mary Katrantzou has recently released an official video of her Spring Summer show at the Temple of Poseison, famously set to new original Vangelis music, last October. The video is set to a lengthy compilation of the new Vangelis music, in by far the best quality it has been available in so far.
Elsewhere: Mary Katrantzou's Spring Summer show. For this occasion, Vangelis created a score of completely new music, composed and recorded specifically for this event. He had also supplied the music for Mary's show at the London Fashion week in Septemberbut on that occasion largely recompiled and re-edited music from some of his albums from the 's, with some minimal additional new music.
For the show at the Temple of Poseidon, Vangelis composed 8 new tracks, a good 35 minutes of brand new music. Some of those tracks were then expanded to longer versions to fit their use in the show. Thanks to a source in Greece who was able to attend the event, we received some video's taken from the audience's perspective.
We share the combined video's in chronological order on Youtube. Click on the screenshot or the video link below. The following series of official and approved photographs were shot by Jason Lloyd Evans Instagram: jasonlloydevans. Reports from friday's unique fashion and charity event at the Temple of Poseidon are raving about a magical night at the famous monument, with the show being set to a full blown new original Vangelis soundtrack, recorded a style reminiscent of his style in the s.
The music was very well received and would not have sounded out of place on albums like Voices, Oceanic, or the big events in Greece like the legendary IAAF opening ceremony in Athens.
An official statement from Mary Katrantzou includes some words about Vangelis' musical contribution:. Thank you to composer, Vangelis, from the bottom of my heart for composing the music for this special moment. It is rare in life to meet a man who has the power to change the way you think, while simultaneously encourage you to dream that anything is possible. I am blessed to be able to call him my friend.
If the show took place years from now, his words and music would be celebrated, as we celebrate today some of the great minds that lived here years ago. Reporters also quoted her saying "There is no other music that would fit better in this space. Sources close to Vangelis confirm that he has composed original new music for tonight's presentation of Mary Katrantzou's Spring Summer collection for at the Temple Of Posseidon at Sounio, just south of Athens, Greece.
The spectacular location is an absolute first for any fashion show, which is doubles as a charity fundraiser for the Elpida foundation. Vangelis also provided music for last year's September presentation by Mary Katrantzou, but then was mostly a selection and re-editing of some of the lesser known gems from Vangelis' back catalog, with some additional recordings. In today's show new music plays a more prominent role. There are enthusiastic reports coming in from fans who attended one of the two unique performances of the "The Thread" show, held last weekend at the ancient open air theater of Epidaurus, Greece.
The performances were well received, and both nights have been classified as magical. Blade Runner actor Rutger Hauer has sadly passed away. Vangelis shares the following personal statement:. He was a good friend of mine and I was hoping to meet him again in the next few months as we used to. Unfortunately this will not happen. I will always keep the memory of him as a good friend and indeed I will never forget this old time classic scene from the Bladerunner movie, ending his monologue with the following pleas "time to die" and a white pigeon flies in the sky.
Here is the video that was shown during the press conference for "The Thread" that was held last Monday in Athens. For more info please check our update from June Artistic director and choreographer Russell Maliphant along with producer Georgia Iliopoulou were present at the event.
It was unveiled performances of "The Thread" are planned for Cyprus in November and later in Athens in December, including the already scheduled performances for Germany in August as well at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus on August During the press event a video was displayed showing highlights from the performance and the artists involved in making "The Thread", starting with Vangelis who is seen with some of the guest musicians.
Lots of interest on Vangelis and his thoughts on this performance as demonstrated by the number of articles in the Greek press. Press articles and news clips. Note all in Greek: www. Contains a video excerpt of Vangelis at bottom of article gr. EuroNews' video and interview with Russell Maliphant www.
Tickets are on sale at the link below. Link to purchase tickets from viva. Press article in Greek on the event: www. Written by Dennis, March 29, March 29 Vangelis' birthday is nice occasion to share a few small updates from past few weeks While all Vangelis interviews are rare occasions, such publications in the American press are even more unique.
Here a is a new one, where an American journalist spoke with Vangelis for the LA Times, about the release of Vangelis' latest album "Nocturne". As the London performances of Vangelis scored dance performance "The Thread" have ended, and reactions from audiences and Vangelis fans are universally positive, some hints on international performances are appearing in the press.
Some fans reported problems with the sound quality on the second disc. Apparently the production of this release suffered a technical problem. Do be aware that not all copies were affected by this problem, and that distributors were provided with replacement copies of the second disc. If your copy has a problem, be sure to contact your distributor. With less than 5 days to go until the first performance in London's prestigious Sadler's Wells theater, it's time for an update on the Vangelis scored "The Thread" dance performance.
The venue was stunning, The interior looked like a typical Renaissance Italian city, even if all was in concrete and brick.
The performance started at The dancers, around 20 in total, mostly female, with their performance told or suggested - in a not narrative way - the ancient myth of Ariadne and the Minotaur in a kind of metaphoric interpretation of the legend.
The dresses were beautiful and coloured, resembling old tunics for the women and military uniforms for the men. Sadly, it was prohibited to take photographs or capture audio and video recordings. Eighty minutes of Vangelis at his best, bombastic, evocative and mysterious, in the same way as his more ethnic productions from before.
All the tunes in this "suite" there were only few seconds to separate one track from the next were a bit dark, more percussive than expressly tonal or melodic, with Greek or Byzantines flavours You can easlily find echoes of "Cavafy", "El Greco" or "Alexander" Bagoas' dance should fit perfectly herewith trumpet, violin, lyre or other ancient Greek instruments in a leading role and only sparse electronic waves in the background. Sometimes the voices of dancers were joint to the pre recorded voices.
In another tune, little bells were stuck to belts of male dancers, which accumulated the percussion into an explosive crescendo. There was great applause at the end. Another gem from Vangelis. With less than a month before the official premiere of Russell Maliphant's The Thread in London, two preview performances are going to be held in Ancona, Italy at Teatro delle Muse. The preview performances are scheduled for March 1, and 2. Tickets can be purchased at the link below. Thanks to Marc Vanholsbeeck for the heads up on the preview performance, and to Giuseppe Andreazza for the tip on the trailer!
Tomorrow, Sunday February 10, the Sunday magazine edition of Greek newspaper Kathimerini will feature a brand new interview with Vangelis. A photograph of Vangelis is also featured on the cover of this edition. Vangelis talks about his new album "Nocturne", what the piano means to him, about science, philosophy, ancient Greek and recent history, his tribute music for Stephen Hawking and man's position in space.
The eight pages long article comes with several recent photographs, some of them never before published. Copies of the CD are confirmed to have reached stores. A vinyl edition of the album is expected to reach stores on Saturday, next week. The album features 11 brand new compositions, as well as 6 classic Vangelis compositions reinterpreted in the album's lush but relaxed style, with the synth piano firmly positioned at the front of the imaginary stage.
On most tracks the piano is backed with subtle synth strings or other layed back accompaniment. One track breaks the pace: Intermezzo is performed only on synth strings. Pioneering composer Vangelis is offering fans the chance to hear music from his brand new album 'Nocturne' before its release, by taking photos of the moon. They can upload their pictures via mobile phone to an innovative new website vangelisnocturne.
Vangelis' new album will be released on 25th January on Decca Records and is a soothing collection of solo piano pieces, recorded in his inimitable style. There are 11 new tracks as well as brand new versions of his iconic hits including Chariots of Fire and the 'Love Theme' from Blade Runner.
Vangelis himself records on a grand piano for the first time. Among the new tracks are such beautiful pieces as 'Nocturnal Promenade', which opens the album and is the first single, as well as 'Through the Night Mist', 'Sweet Nostalgia' and 'Lonesome'.
His music has also been used in the documentary series Cosmos by Carl Sagan. Recently, Vangelis collaborated with the European Space Agency ESA on his album 'Rosetta', which was inspired by the Rosetta Mission to land a probe on a comet for the first time in history.
With millions of sales worldwide, Vangelis remains at the top of his game thanks to his masterly ability to compose stirring music that fuels the senses.
But to Vangelis, music is a sacred, basic force of the universe, its purpose to elevate, inspire and to heal humankind. His new album 'Nocturne' aims to give listeners the chance to relax and reconnect with the world around us. Watch the video for the first single HERE. The official announcement for Vangelis' upcoming new album "Nocturne" has been delayed until later this month. Because Universal has already released artwork and track list to various retailers, we preview them here as well.
Tracks 2, 3, 7, 11, 13 and 16 are previously released Vangelis tracks, in a new interpretation. Track 12 is completely new, contrary to some publications. Thanks to everyone who sent links and info, we appreciate every email and all input we receive, but we are currently limiting our reporting to official and confirmed information, for maximum accuracy, and in support of the official publicity campaign which will begin later this month.
Vangelis' brand new album " Nocturne " will be officially announced for pre-order on December 7. Last saturday, the first preview performance of The Thread was staged in Kalamata, Greece, and Noel Koutlis managed to attend.
He reports for us:. This looked like a nice 90 minute video clip with dancers live on the stage. Not some remixes from old tracks but totally new music, with most scenes having rhythmic bombasting music similar to the compositions in Alexander's dance scenes. The intro was a nice small melodic piece. What you hear in the trailer on YouTube is the music you mostly hear in the show. And for the die hard fans: you can hear all Vangelis signature sounds Blade Runner CS, angelic voices and the sort!
I couldn't take my eyes from the stage. There was a part though where the music wasn't what you would expect to go with the dancing on the stage. Maybe the director wanted it to look like a dream or something. It sounded like it needed some extra sound engineering work. The show should be perfect by the time it arrives in London.

Overall the midrange can consider flat with a slight bump a little after the pinna gain. This is where the flaw comes in. Depending on the track, some vocalists can sound a tad too close i. For some like myself, I prefer having vocalists relatively forward, though I will admit that it can get fatiguing.
Both male and female vocals have great clarity with female vocals being up and center. Nothing sounds out of place. Very well-tuned midrange with little faults. Treble seems to have decent extension, though nothing exceptional. One thing I noticed though is that nothing seems to be pronounced. In fact, treble seems quite unfatiguing.
No hints of sibilance or anything any weird peaks. Surprisingly more similar than you think. Midrange is where things go back and forth. Honestly, I think midrange is almost identical. Both male and female vocals have great clarity, though with a forwardness that some may find too fatiguing after long listening sessions.
Treble extension and detail seem to be better on the Variations, though the B2 is pretty solid. Detail retrieval on both seems to be pretty good with the slight edge to the Variations. Staging and imaging on the Variations is slightly ahead of the B2. I consider the Variations to be the ideal upgrade to the B2. Dunu SA6 Though similarly priced, these sets present music rather differently and enjoy I both for different reasons. Bass easily goes to the Variations. More impact, slam, texture, definition, and fun.
The bass on the SA6 is no slouch, but it really shows why a DD is preferred for bass. For the midrange, I actually prefer the SA6. Vocals male and female have provide great detail while never being too close or too far. Instruments on both have great tonality, though the SA6 has that special sauce. Treble is extended well on both, but the Variations goes the extra mile. Clarity is also better on the Variations.
