The 7th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Musical Composition - Vangelis

Although not as prolific as many of the great film composers, the stamp Vangelis made upon the medium is unquestionable. Starting his musical career in the 1960s in bands such as The Forminx and Aphrodite’s Child, after a few film scores became a fully-fledged solo artist in 1973, putting out albums such as Earth, Heaven And Hell and China. However, it his film scores for Chariots Of Fire, which won him the Academy Award for Best Original Score, and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner for which he is most noted. His influence on the use of electronic music as viable means of film composition is unquestionable.
