Re: Oxymore album, october 21 2022

MG did OK. It's not as intricate as JmJ but then that's to be expected. Few people in history of Electronic Music are as intricate as JmJ can be. (JmJ isn't always intricate there's lots of basic tracks from JmJ). Lead line MG put in is a neat touch. Humble of JmJ to say it's an honour to have MG re...

Re: Try to win a bottle signed by Michel Granger

Rendezvous album art is my favourite of Michel Granger from JmJs albums.

It would been appropriate for Zoolook album, I guess the painting was conceived after Zoolook.

Re: The 15 greatest synth icons: Carlos, Hancock, Jarre and more

A bit of a weird article. Fluff article really. I would start from 1939. My quick take (Wendy Carlos could be higher though as she's so relevant to synth music). 15 – Brian Eno 14 – Vince Clarke 13 – John Paul Jones 12 – Gershon Kingsley 11 – Mike Oldfield 10 – Herbie Hancock 9 - Giorgio Moroder 8 ...

Re: R.I.P Vangelis :( :(

Fishing junks sunset was based on a traditional chinese composition that comes from the ages… Jarre adapted to the chinese orchestra. This is known at least amongst zoolook forum members. I should have been clearer. It is the way JmJ placed his Electronica within a traditional Chinese instrumental,...

Re: R.I.P Vangelis :( :(

I usually point out where JmJ inspired others, others copied JmJ, where JmJ was the first to do something compositionally in Electronic music. I will also point out where others inspired JmJ, where JmJ copied others. This Vangelis 1979 Brussels concert of his China album with Orchestra https://m.you...

Re: R.I.P Vangelis :( :(

Vangelis for me was the most humanist in his compositions of all the well known Electronic music composers. Even though obviously Vangelis composed several space related albums. JmJ for me is the most elevating taking us to a higher plane in his compositions of all the well known Electronic music co...

Ah the big V.

The music that poured through Vangelis will continue touching the lives of millions worldwide.

What a gift to the world was Vangelis.

Dear JmJ This is briiliant. Quirky, imaginative, fun, explorative. (I listen to a lot of music from many styles from various parts of the world. And I can say this is brilliant) . It's also brilliant at your age you are so into latest tech. You are the only artist musician from your electronica peer...

Re: Stéphane Gervais (aka PsychNerD)

#One important thing to appreciate is JmJ's generosity openness in all this. JmJ clearly mentioning Michel on albums, having Michel prominently in Houston, Lyon, Docklands, LaDefense. JmJ didn't have to be this generous open. JmJ could have hidden Michel away if JmJ had anything to hide. Similarly S...

I will listen to these Stephane tracks as I enjoy Stephane's music. ## Remember on the internet anyone can say anything. Without evidence without specifics it's hogwash. Instead of throwing things around, you both need to be specific. You both need to have evidence. (Remember someone could make up t...

Stephane is superb. I have a lot of time for Stephane. Jote this is such a stretch. Michel Geiss himself refuted in a detailed interview everything you wrote. I really don't know why you persist with such nonsense. Did JmJ hurt you ignore you is this why. IMHO, it's no nonsense. It makes perfect sen...
