Welcome to the independent Elsewhere Vangelis site. With this unofficial fan project we hope to share our passion for the music of Vangelis, provide an introduction into the broad scope of his work, as well as keep you informed on all the latest news out there. We try to confirm and verify all of that as well as we can.
Since the 2011 redesign editorial control involves team work, with Sufian having joined Dennis' ongoing maintenance of the Elsewhere site.
Thanks for visiting, and feel free to drop us a line with your thoughts, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Composer, producer, arranger and performer of some of the most engaging music in the new age, progressive, electronic, film score and ambient genres.
Composing and performing most of his music on a large setup of keyboards and synthesizers, Vangelis has released over 40 albums and created music for film, theater productions, sports events, one-off live concerts and any other art form that inspires him. His music, usually very melodic, often instrumental, sometimes relaxing, but always inspiring, has navigated through a wide range of the musical spectrum, expressing himself in any of the musical palettes, from serious classical music to chirpy electro pop, from jazz induced progressive rock to spaced out ambient music, always adopting these musical languages to his own style of emotion and musical aesthetics.
In a career that started in the early 1960s and still continues today, Vangelis has created music that excelled in gentle tenderness, majestic grandeur, bittersweet melancholy, unearthly weirdness, organic hypnotism, social satire, dreamy optimism, urban paranoia and many more traits, for which words have yet to be invented.
