“ALBEDO 0.39” was VANGELIS’ second album to be released by RCA Records and was recorded at his personal studio in London, Nemo in 1976. This conceptual work, inspired by Space and Galactic Physics, took its name from the planet Earth’s albedo, (the proportion of the light a planet receives that is reflected back into outer space), as it was in 1976. The album was to feature the iconic “Pulstar” and saw VANGELIS push the perceived boundaries of the synthesizer as a musical instrument to new dimensions. In addition, VANGELIS played a wide variety of other instruments on this album.
