Maybe Chris Franke could do the soundtrack, like he did with Babylon 5. But if Vangelis were to get the job again, i think it would be more orchestral in flavour rather than the CS80/VP330/Emulator laden score the original 1982 soundtrack was.
Maybe other nominee's could be: John Carpenter or Pete Namlook.
I doubt that. Vangelis himself said he never throw any previous gear away so he still own all of his analog gear and who knows maybe he is still using them but the problem is that we can't hear them because although Vangelis does literally music every single day, he's just publishing a fraction of the them. I also remember that Vangelis has natural urgent need to make music so he have done that nevertheless of the demands for new albums, and Vangelis even told that if he would stop making music, he would already have enough material for over 100 albums from the nemo years alone.
The reason why Vangelis wasn't anymore into analog was perhaps that he had already done that over decades so he wanted to do something different
. Some likes only his early progressive rock years, some nemo years, some his newer albums like oceanic (someone said it was joke?! Man, there's no other album to bring me the atmospheres of the song "Fields of coral"!), I love them all.
As the Rousseu told in the interview that "The idea was not to be more digital, the concept was to be more live".
After all, it's the midi technology that made it possible.
But man, I really hope he ever would release new studio albums... either new or something from nemo years... I wonder why he's not doing that since in these days it's much easier to publish everything by yourself and Vangelis already have a very big name so I doubt it wouldn't be an issue.
