Nemo Studios was a recording studio in London, planned, built and used by Greek composer Vangelis between 1975 and 1987. Numerous highlights of Vangelis' career were composed in Nemo, including soundtracks for Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Hugh Hudson's Chariots of Fire (the soundtrack for which he won an Oscar) and Roger Donaldson's The Bounty.
The studio was located on the second floor of the former Hampden Gurney school building, near the Marble Arch. The building no longer exists. Vangelis' equipment included more than 20 synthesizers and acoustic keyboard instruments, as well as numerous percussion instruments.
