Jean-Michel Jarre and China
Thanks to the international success of the album "Oxygene", the master of electronics performed in China in 1981. A special experience between Beijing and Shanghai. Melody tells you .
Chinese audiences indifferent to music
Before the artist enters the scene, the technicians understand that there is not enough current to supply the sound system. As a solution, the Chinese authorities temporarily cut off electricity in neighboring districts. The concert is going pretty well, the stadium is full when the show starts, but as the Beijing buses stop running around 10 p.m., half of the audience leaves before the concert ends .
The event is noted for an almost non-existent public participation. The Chinese are indifferent to music and the light show . In Shanghai, Jean-Michel Jarre encourages public participation by entering the crowd, which becomes much more responsive than in Beijing.
The concerts together 218,000 people on all benefits. Finally , the Chinese public was won over, and Jean-Michel Jarre became an honorary member of the Beijing Conservatory of Music. The Chinese will give him the nickname of "great master of electronics".
