Jean Michel Jarre – Oxygene IV – Live

February 3, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Jean Michel Jarre at young age, performing his Oxygene IV in the Dutch television show ‘TopPop’.
Notice his random play on the keyboards, an obvious playback performance, much more common back in 1978.
At the time, his performance with all the synthesizers alone gave the audience a huge enough impression. Many even wondered how he could perform the song all by himself.

Images enhanced in colour, sharpness and contrast and soundtrack remastered for better clearity and stereo imaging.

Jean Michel Jarre talks about Oxygène

January 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · 1 Comment 

Oxygène 7-13 is a 1997 album of instrumental electronic music by Jean Michel Jarre, his ninth overall studio album. It is the sequel to his 1976 album Oxygène, and is dedicated to Jarre’s former mentor, experimental musician Pierre Schaeffer. While the album was recorded using many of the same synthesizers as Oxygène, and the titling suggests a continuation from where the first album ends, many tracks have a more uptempo, trance-like character. The album is not as widely acclaimed as the original Oxygène, but has been quite successful nonetheless, especially among fans. Released approximately twenty years after the worldwide release of the first Oxygène, it is Jarre’s final album in his traditional style (exclusive of Oxygène: New Master Recording), and thus comes full circle. It was also the last album by Jarre featuring Michel Geiss as collaborator.

“Oxygène 7″, “Oxygène 8″ and “Oxygène 10″ have been released as singles. A number of remixes of Oxygène 7–13 tracks have been made, including those comprising most of the album Odyssey Through O2. The Orb’s single “Toxygene” was originally intended for release as a remix for the single release of “Oxygène 8″, but was rejected by Jarre for being too distant from the original.

Jarre Technologies releases AeroSystem

November 19, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Jean Michel Jarre has launched the first product from his new company Jarre Technologies: AeroSystem. AeroSystem is an iPhone/iPod compatible multi directional sound tower, delivering stereo sound from a single multi-axial point.

Jarre Technologies was founded five years ago and the plan is to create high-end, affordable and aesthetic home-entertainment products.

- As a musician, I have always strived for my albums and live performance to render a sound as close as possible to perfection. This brought me to think of what the ideal sound-system of the future should be: A product that can accept all digital formats, from MP3 to hard-disk files, as well as a vinyl turn-table or a CD player, with an aesthetic ambition while privileging optimum audio quality – with bass and a dynamic acoustic that correspond to our listening habits today – all at a most affordable price, Jarre says.
