Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

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.

There's a nice hardware sequencer called the DOEPFER DARK TIME, it has a random mode.

Re: Is Nord Lead 2X or 4 better for Jarre type sounds ? and.

If you are trying to make Jarre type sounds, then the Nord synths are not the best synths for that. . So, what kind of synths are the best for that? There are some really good modern analog VCO synths such as the Vermona Perfourmer MKII, Studio Electronics Boomstar, TomOberheim.com SEM Pro... Of co...

I really liked the music for some of the amiga and commodore 64 video games: turrican 2, the last ninja, skate or die, platoon, hybris etc!

Very appropriate film on the screen too (Forbidden Planet) - the first to use a totally electronic score for the soundtrack :) I think Jarre is a big fan of science fiction and astronomy. He's definitely namechecked Arthur C Clark and Stephen Hawking so it doesn't surprise me that he's also a 'Forb...

Anyway, counting all these potential acts collaborating...these artists belong to different record labels. Jarre particularly belongs to Sony. Sow how is it going to be? E.g. label of Lynch will approve to collaborate for Jarre/Sony? You know what I mean. I don't think it would be a big problem. Th...

He was also making haunting score for movie The Thing. and The Fog (brilliant score), Prince of Darkness, Big Trouble in Little China,.... :wink: Actually Ennio Morricone did most of the Soundtrack for 'The Thing'. But he tried to make it match the atmosphere of the film so it sounds similar to Car...

I'm looking forward to this new album. I hope Dominique Perrier will also be featured on it, I think he's one of Jarre's most important collaborators. Unlike many others, I actually enjoyed 'Teo and Tea' too! I think Jarre and Brian Eno sometimes move in some of the same social circles, they both wo...

Yes, I have both an Ion and a Micron. They are excellent synthesizers. But maybe not the best synths for a beginner because the interface is quite complicated.

The Waldorf Blofeld is a great synth, both powerful and flexible. With careful programming you should be able to create sounds that are close to some of JMJ's sounds. But for leads and basslines and effects I recommend getting a REAL analog synth as well as the Blofeld. Jarre nearly always uses real...

Re: NEW Vangelis Compositions

Since by Vangelis' own admission he doesn't read/write music, I wonder how the "composing" was actually accomplished. He just plays it on his keyboard, someone else listens to it and transcribes it into musical notation. It is not so difficult to do. On that canceled Vangelis documentary ...

Did Jarre ever use the PPG Wave?

On many Internet websites Jarre is listed as a user of the PPG Wave. But I've never heard any typical PPG Wave sounds on his albums and I've never seen the PPG Wave listed on his album sleeves.

So did he ever really use it? Or is it just more incorrect Internet misinformation?

I wonder if there is some hidden motivation behind the tour... Personally I wish he would just sit down in the studio with his team for one month, with his vintage analog gear, and make a new album. JMJ is like most other acts of his era (70's - 90's) touring makes money, much more than album sales...
