Jean-Michel Jarre and the Geneva Museum of Ethnography: an unprecedented musical collaboration

A musical exchange between Paris and Switzerland. The Musée d'ethnographie de Genève (MEG) - which has launched a participatory name change process - has collaborated with the Musée de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris to create the soundtrack for the next exhibition dedicated to the famous photographer Sebastião Salgado .

Created by Jean-Michel Jarre, the music for the “Sebastião Salgado-Amazônia” exhibition integrates sound archives from the MEG, recorded in the Amazon between the 1950s and 2019. An audio archive collection of approximately 40 hours. “I first wanted to avoid the scientific approach or background music. So I established a sort of toolbox containing musical elements intended to recreate or evoke the timbre of natural sounds. I added sounds from the environment, and finally ethnic sources (voices, songs, instruments) from the sound archives of the Musée d'ethnographie de Genève, with which I spoke a lot ”, explains the musician.

Whilst patiently awaiting the Amazonia signed LP + photobook I ordered from the insideout shop, I looked on their website. This is what I got:

Looks like it'll be delayed... sigh.

"Amazônia" exhibition: Sebastião Salgado denounces "lack of honesty" among consumers in the face of deforestation

Indigenous people “represent paradise on Earth”

The trip to the forest through the lens of Salgado has a soundtrack by Villa-Lobos with real sounds of the forest, collected since the 1950s and stored in the Ethnographic Museum of Geneva, partner of the event. The composition is by Frenchman Jean-Michel Jarre, considered one of the fathers of electronic music. The exhibition also has testimonials from 10 indigenous peoples - who present a true cry for help in view of the advances of tractors on their lands.

I've got a reply from InsideOut concerning the Amazonia LP + book package. The release was delayed and they're waiting for the book to arrive, then they'll be sent out. They expect the book this week so for the people who've ordered it: it'll be coming soon.
