Vou te contar uma coisa muito íntima, uma coisa que ocorre dentro de mim quando procuro DEUS.
Pois bem, estava eu à ouvir VANGELIS - um disco muito louco chamado "heaven and hell" céu e inferno! quando Lá no final me deparo com uma MELODIA "Superior" algo profundamente instigante. Uma Voz angelical ....
Um sino! Lá no final da Música anunciando que algo tinha acontecido!
Sem eu ver, ouvir ou conhecer o disco direito fui levado às Lágrimas transportado para os tempos Bíblicos!
Sim um tema bíblico como se fosse uma trilha daquelas de filmes sobre a vida de JESUS!
Hoje eu resolví pesquisar na internet e me deparo com a confirmação do que meu ouvido ouviu e minha mente imaginou. Um Tema desse disco do VANGELIS chamado 12' O Clock (meia noite ou meio dia?)
Deus me deu vários dons, mas certamente um dos mais sublimes é a Musica e a capacidade cognitiva que ela me dá! eu não preciso de DVD - eu ouço e imagino! por isso os Temas e o Prog. são o tipo de Musica que mais gosto!
From the Heaven and Hell album. Heaven and Hell, released in 1975, is the fifth solo album by Greek electronic composer Vangelis. It got worldwide recognition through the use of "Movement 3" as the theme for the television documentary series Cosmos. Heaven and Hell was the first album Vangelis composed and recorded in his new Nemo Studios in London, the studio he used between 1975 and 1987.
The album has classical overtones, in contrast with the progressive rock on both the previous and the following albums, Earth (1973) and Albedo 0.39 (1976) respectively. Vangelis would return to classical style work ten years later, on Mask (1985).Vangelis dabbles with choral sections joined with his now typical electronic washes of sound, a concept he would return to in the nineties with his Conquest of Paradise and Mythodea. By now, Vangelis had left behind his electronic-progressive-rock forays. In fact, this album constitutes the first album where Vangelis establishes himself as one of the main figures in the growing musical genre of electronic instrumental and new age, creating a web of sound linking several simultaneous beats and melodic lines of different timbres on his synthesizers.
This album also marked the first collaboration between Vangelis and Jon Anderson, on "So Long Ago, So Clear", which would continue more fully a few years later. Heaven and Hell reached number 31 in the UK album charts in January 1976.
Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou (Greek: Ευάγγελος Οδυσσέας Παπαθανασίου]; born 29 March 1943), professionally known as Vangelis , is a Greek composer of electronic, progressive, ambient, jazz, pop rock, and orchestral music. 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 PBS documentary Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan.
Vangelis began his professional musical career working with several popular bands of the 1960s such as The Forminx and Aphrodite's Child, with the latter's album 666 going on to be recognized as a psychedelic "classic". Throughout the 1970s, Vangelis composed music scores for several animal documentaries, including L'Apocalypse Des Animaux, La Fête sauvage and Opéra sauvage; the success of these scores brought him into the film scoring mainstream. In the early 1980s, Vangelis formed a musical partnership with Jon Anderson, the lead singer of progressive rock band Yes, and the duo went on to release several albums together as Jon & Vangelis.
In 1981, he composed the score for the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire, which won him the Academy Award for Best Original Music Score. The soundtrack's single, "Titles", also reached the top of the American Billboard Hot 100 chart and was used as the background music at the London 2012 Olympics winners' medal presentation ceremonies.
In a career spanning over 50 years, writing and composing more than 52 albums, Vangelis is regarded as one of the greatest composers of electronic music of all time.
