There is an amazing rendition of some of the music that we get to enjoy in Blade Runner by the Danish Symphony Orchestra (and David Bateson), It seems to have been televised in June 2017 when the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) hosted three orchestral concerts called “Galaxymphony” which included some of the soundtrack from various space and sci-fi movies.
This is their version of some of the Blade Runner soundtrack called ‘The Blade Runner suite’.
Analog Sweden (A Swedish based studio created from a passion of analog synthesizers, vintage studio equipment and the culture surrounding it) has created a crowdfunded Blade Runner inspired musical project that also will involve Artwork from Kilian Eng, HR-FM and other artists. The music will be made with the same analog instruments as Vangelis used to make the wonderful audio landscape that is the music of Blade Runner.
The idea behind this is to explore into the other stories in the Blade Runner universe.
Create a Full Length Soundtrack
Using Vangelis original equipment & recording process
Artwork to each track by Kilian Eng, HR-FM + others
