I wanted to do a Vangelis tribute track. For me personally, his soundscapes and above all his sound aesthetics were probably the initial spark that brought me to electronic music and thus to synthesizers. I have almost all albums. The COSMOS series with Carl Sagan ran on GDR television in the early 1980s. That was my first contact with his music. The sounds touched me and painted pictures in my head. They stimulated my imagination. That ultimately aroused my interest in these supposedly unattainable "miracle machines", the synthesizers. But that was all so far away back then. Rest in peace maestro.

The track Chung Kuo is on the China album, released in 1979.

I used the Roland VP330 for string sounds, the Oberheim OB-X for the CS brass sound, the Arp Quadra for the main theme and the bass & string sounds, the Emulator II for percussion sounds, the Yamaha DX7 II für the melody and pad sounds and the Roland M-VS1 module for additional horn/pad sounds."
