Here’s something very rare: a suite of unreleased music Vangelis composed for the special edition of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos in 1986, the tv documentary serie that originally started already in 1980. The suite is compiled from 6 Movement songs. I omitted the sixth movement since it’s the same as the only song that is commercially released as Comet 16.
The music is absolutely gorgeous. Vangelis uses both crystal clear digital synthesizers and his famous old analogues as well… absolutely fabulous combination of both worlds. It’s incredible luck for us all that these movements saw the daylight.
Please enjoy the vast world of our Cosmos!

(Movement 6 = Comet 16, not included here because it’s offically released and it was lower quality than the offical).
