Vangelis - The Tegos Tapes


Microneurosurgery with video tapes - Spinal Space-Occupying Lesions, by dr. Stergios Tegos
(Medical Publications, Konstandaras, Athens 1998)

This publication by dr. Tegos is divided into three sections, the first giving a general review of the commonest pathology of the spinal cord, the second detailed descriptions of 35 representative patients, and the third contains video recordings of the operations of these patients. The tapes contain no less than 12 hours of video, and as dr. Tegos puts it; "To provide a more pleasant, relaxing and less monotonous experience even for established neurosurgeons, Vangelis Papathanasiou has composed music for each of the operations separately." Be sure to check out the enclosed pages for a description of Vangelis' technique of "immediateness" for composing this massive amount of tunage. Our providing friend, who wants to remain anonymous, spent the christmas chopping up the 12 hours of tape for us to enjoy. Thank you for the effort! Here's a vid of case 24 to "enjoy", and check out the comments for links to the entire lot.

I LOVE whoever took the pains to share this, but then again, when I read this had been found I figured they HAD to do this. I would have :D

Thank you very very much!

Well, damn. I think this may keep my ears busy for a few weeks. Anonymous seems like a dedicated individual. Have to add my thanks for time spent on this project. I'm only a couple cases in and thoroughly enjoying, so far. Have to admit the video was a little hard to take, but the music is a treat. Very nice post, indeed.

Please elaborate:
Is there narration on any of these?
(You said 12 were music to video,but there are 35 downloads.)

2/ If I were to try only one, is there a standout (instrumental) one?
Maybe one thats more lively. (Im feeling this music might be boring/clinical, Raymond Scott lullaby-type.)

This is amazing stuff!

Could you reupload case 12? It doesn't seem to be available at any of the sites now.

JIRO said...

No idea how the Dr can say this music is to provide a more pleasant and relaxing experience, that video is terrifying, it looks more like some nightmare Deckard would have in Blade Runner questioning whether he is an android or human. Brilliant stuff though! Thanks again.

I can no longer access any files after Case 10 - is there any chance of rehosting them somewhere - on mediafire perhaps? This is amazing stuff, and any help would be appreciated so much!!

Multiupload is part of Megaupload which is under investigation by the FBI. So this post will be unavailable until uploaded to another file sharing host. Any attempt to download will look like this

Martin said...

Case 14 and Case 20 have a problem:
"This file is currently set to private."

Wow - absolutely superb!!!!!!!!!!!
I, like so many other fans, did not know Vangelis did this and I would like to extend my gratitude to your exceptional generosity for sharing this treasure.
Thank you so much!!!

All we need now is some CD artwork......

Amazing... I googled "Tegos Vangelis" just to have more information on this, and this post came up. What I've heard up to now is pure Vangelis genius. Besides, is great to have it here on the growig bin. Thank you very very much!

Links to multiupload do not work, please, repair them or tell me where to find the music anywhere else.

basso said...

good manors??

El conde said...

Absolutely amazing. Congratulations and thanks for a thousand times.

I've been a fan of Vangelis ever since I found "Spiral" on an 8-Track in a Zayre back in 1978. I want to get on my knees and kiss your virtual ass Porntrond! Thank you eternally for your hard work and for posting the files at MediaFire!

Hard to belief this is actually by Vangelis. This sort of Dark Ambient sounds more than Lustomord to these ears. It's amazing if totally unsettling.

roddie said...

Thanks so much for taking the time to upload all these. They sound amazing - maybe one day they will see some sort of official release.

Is anyone able to reupload Case 18? It seems to be the only broken link.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for sharing these with us. Roddie's comment above is correct -- all the new links work *except* for Case 18. You just get a message about an invalid or deleted file.

Can someone please please give us a fresh link for the Case 18 file?
