Vangelis, damn. R.I.P. 



Vangelis, the Greek composer and musician whose synth-driven work brought huge drama to film soundtracks including Blade Runner and Chariots of Fire, has died aged 79. His representatives said he died in hospital in France where he was being treated.

Spoilt for choice, amazing soundtrack work, and I've always had a soft spot for this track, and the album

R.I.P. Tragic news

I had heard his Mutiny Of The Bounty (Closing Titles) loooong time ago in a TV series with film reviews, and the chords/pads were ultralush. Didn't know it was his at the time, so I had a mental note for quite some time to ID it.

And my favourite...

You may remember this was used (most famously) in the Cosmos series with Carl Sagan.

This is more of a behind the scenes famous person but Colin Cantwell passed away. He was the original creator of the iconic Star Wars vehicles, having drafted them and made kitbashed models for Lucas very early on in pre-production. 



He also worked on 2001 Space Odyssey and Wargames and consulted for computer companies among other things. He was fairly obscure and pretty much a footnote in Star Wars fan knowledge until he auctioned off some of his original models and concept paintings in 2014. Although it was belated recognition he travelled to many fan events and did some interviews in his twilight years.
