His real name is Evánghelos Papathanassíou. I can understand why he picked the artist name Vangelis.
He has been composing for almost fifty years. Although he is known as an electronic synthesizer musician, that is only partly true. He is an experimental musician. If the sound he his looking for comes from a violin or a human voice he uses it as it is. It does not need be within one of his many synthesizers.
We have all of his solo albums at home and much of his collaborations.
When I listen to his music my mind fills up with images and colors. These are so intense that I rarely can do anything but listen. And enjoy.
