Moments Lost – Music And Art Inspired By Blade Runner





Organizers have announced a new project, Moments Lost, to produce music and art, inspired by the world of Blade Runner.

Here’s a video intro to the project:


Here’s what they have to say about Moments Lost:

We’re approaching the creation of the music with a rig similar to Vangelis’ original setup, of course including the Yamaha CS80, Roland VP-330 strings and Rhodes. On this track we also used the Prophet 5, Jupiter 4 and Analogue Solutions Vostok mk1. The working methods are also inspired by Vangelis, using a live and direct approach to capture the energy and feel of the original recordings where everything is played by hand. No midi is or will be used, only analog sequencers will be used.

Together with a professional writer we’re creating new small stories, called moments, that will be the themes for the music, and to please the eyes we’re working with illustrators Kilian Eng and HR-FM for the creation of the album art.

Here’s the first track created for the project:
