Elusive composer gives a rare video interview with Al Jazeera TV

Elusive composer Vangelis, the man behind the iconic theme music to films such as Blade Runner and Chariots Of Fire, recently granted a rare television interview to Al Jazeera, which you can watch below. In it, he discusses the state of the modern world, why we invest in chaos and the importance of beauty in music and art. It's well worth watching, if you can ignore the rather intense interview style.
