This Nemo era of Vangelis makes me nostalgic im not quite sure why.

It does, me too, extremely.
It’s also weird, at that time, my partner used to teach in a school in Hampton Gurney Street, next to his studio, all these little bits of life’s jigsaw puzzle.
When I got my Lexicon 224, it was also, like a ship, taking me back, it inspires you, when you use these things.
I like Vangelis, he’s a very spiritual person, it comes through very strongly, in his music.

Great article, also lots over at Nemo Studio website.
I like him because he’s very unassuming, and modest, he talks about the studio being a laboratory, simple as that, to facilitate and experiment with new ideas for his music, ideas that no one else was exploring at the time, and it’s a good job he had the resources to do that.
Out of all the people I admire, I’d love to spend an evening chatting with him, having a drink.

Love "Custom Made For Vangelis" on that box, also, that writing on the buttons, they look like magical symbols.
