Re: "Musical creation and technologies"... A book with preface by Jarre

By creating Oxygene with the little he had at the time is much more rewarding than a creation that A.I. made possible with the snap of a finger. I agree and I think Jarre's career is a wonderful example of a truly creative human/technological interaction. In the preface, JMJ alludes to the creativi...

Re: "Musical creation and technologies"... A book with preface by Jarre

Thanks for the preface (I find it anywhere) Whaouh ! it is no longer a preface but a real showcase ! :wink: When I opened your link, it took me to the Fnac page selling the book. I then clicked on the "feuilleter" (browse) button underneath the front cover image and it opened a PDF file t...

Re: "Musical creation and technologies"... A book with preface by Jarre

:D Great spot, nexxxus! Below is a Google translate of JMJ's Preface to Olivier Delevingne's book. -- PREFACE The encounter of a composer with a new instrument, especially when it is innovative, is an emotional moment. What we could call a “link of sound” is then woven and connects them in order to ...

Re: Expirimental 2001 petition

TBH I'm not that interested in it. It's probably rubbish and we all know why it even existed in the first place. I'd much rather have MPS Overture instead. What's the story with it? Was it a contractual obligation? Yes, as I understand it, he had two albums remaining on his deal with Dreyfus and in...

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre's Christmas Spectacle to Celebrate 400th Anniversary of the Château de Versailles

I like the Versailles 400 Live release and although I really liked the "sun god 🌞 wearing VR goggles" original artwork, that was fun (I even bought the t-shirt!) I do like the new AI generated artwork too. The sun god image reminds me of the Europe In Concert Swatch watch artwork. My only ...

Hah. I came here to say, “ah fucking hell man, not AI generated artwork 🤮” Each to their own 😁 Haha! I don't think the AI stuff is great but it is loads better than the awful Oxymore and Oxymore Works album covers. At least there is a return to the link between the artwork and the music. But nothin...

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre's Christmas Spectacle to Celebrate 400th Anniversary of the Château de Versailles

I like the artwork. Me too. While I really admire the ambition of Oxymore and love a lot of the tracks on that album, the artwork is dreadful, possibly the least attractive JMJ album cover ever. The artwork for Oxymore Works was almost as bad, but saved by the little VR characters. The use of AI im...

Re: Houston - Complete audience recording (remastered)

Does anybody know if there was a concert programme produced for Rendezvous Houston? I was looking the other day at the Destination Docklands programme and loved the insight it gives into the three concert phases of Industrial Revolutions, Swinging 60s and the 1990s. I know Houston was structured aro...
