Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Re: Amazonia

Also, I attended the opening day of the Amazonia exhibition in London on 13th October 2021 .... I'll try and post a report soon. It was definitely worth seeing the images with the music and listening to the music with the images - as intended by both SS and JMJ.

Re: Amazonia

There are only so many ways to say these things, and only so many times a poor mortal can hear them. On the face of it, Salgado’s enormous exhibition, set to an immersive soundscape by Seventies new-age pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, sounds more impressive than impactful. Salgado is everyone’s idea of ...

Re: Give me a Sign / Akropolis

I knew about the "Akropolis" and "Give Me A Sign" link. In the same way, the opening track of the Concerts In China "The Overture" is the first movement of "Magnetic Fields Part 1" slowed down. Meanwhile, "Aero" and "Je Me Souviens" share t...

Re: What came first, the art or the music?

This article suggests that the artwork was already called Oxygene and that JMJ then used that name for the music: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/oct/16/jean-michel-jarre-michel-granger-oxygene It was 1976 and I was having my first major show in Paris. On display was a 30x40cm watercolour cal...

What came first, the art or the music?

I am looking for clarity on the origins of the Oxygene name as different reports suggest different things. Here goes, which one is correct? A) Michel Granger produced a painting, and it was called Oxygene. JMJ saw this in an exhibition and wanted to use the art as the cover for his new album, at tha...

Re: Some JMJ's photos

The city skyline as a projection screen Jarre and Fisher had a close friendship since they had realized numerous opulent performances together, especially in the eighties. So the Frenchman can no longer get out of the narrative when he is given the floor as a guest of honour as part of the press to...

Re: Stéphane Gervais (aka PsychNerD)

Stéphane Gervais has just released the final installment of his Triptych series. Highly recommended listen (the entire series). For those unaware Stéphane worked with JMJ as production assistant between ≈2013 and 2018 and he's quite obviously the person responsible for JMJ's big style shift during ...
