Vangelis created Memories Of Green in 1980 for his album See You Later, but it's not as famous as the Blade Runner soundtrack from 1982 in which the track was included too.

Trying to replicate it on my Nord Stage 2, using a sampled Bösendorfer piano with some flanger ("drunk piano"), virtual analog synthesizers controlled with an expression pedal, and a generous amount of reverb.

One of the best scenes in the film occurs early on, when Deckard (Harrison Ford) has an awkward meeting with Rachael (Sean Young). The music heard in this scene fits it perfectly, yet was taken from an earlier Vangelis album. The piece, 'Memories Of Green', is distinctive for its melancholy, 'drunk' piano sound. Raphael Preston: "We used an Electroharmonix Electric Mistress flanger pedal on 'Memories Of Green', putting a Steinway Grand through it. The electronic noises on there came from one of the first hand-held electronic games, a Japanese thing called the Bambino UFO Master Blaster Station! I had to play it for the length of the piece without losing the game, because when you lost, it made the most horrible noise."

I've tried to replace the electronic game bleeps with Vangelis' signature dark Blade Runner pad.
