New Vangelis movie score: "Le Crépuscule des Ombres"
Some good news here! There will be a new original score by Vangelis to look forward to. Vangelis has composed the music for an upcoming French Algerian movie with the title "Le Crépuscule des Ombres". Sources close to Vangelis confirm his part in the project. The score is entirely performed by Vangelis on his synthesizers. The movie sees Algerian director Mohamed Lakhdar-Hamina return to the art of movie production and direction after almost 30 years. He is one of the foremost names in Arabic cinema and is most well known for his epic "Chronique des années de braise" (Chronicle of the Years of Fire / Chronicle Of The Years Of Ember) about the Algerian war of independence, which won a Palme d’Or in 1975. The story is said to deal with Algeria's struggle for freedom and independence from France in the last century. Some patience will be needed, as these are fresh developments.
