At 74, Jean-Michel Jarre delivers a sensational performance with Oxymore, his latest album
Jean-Michel Jarre, the septuagenarian electronic music pioneer who has sold over 85 million records worldwide, is back with a new album.
CODA Audio has partnered with French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre for a series of immersive performances that will dazzle with the latest technology.
The first show took place at the Midem exhibition, at the Cannes festival, between January 19-21. Jarre also unveiled his new album, Oxymore, which was released in October.
The performances use CODA Audio's N-RAY system in a 16.1 configuration coupled with the company's immersive Space Hub processor.
Jarre said: “Placing sounds as objects around us in a 360° plane is a completely different way of composing, revolutionizing the conception, production and distribution of tomorrow's music. In real life, there is no such thing as stereo - our audio field is 360°. Today, technology allows us to explore composition in spatial audio, which opens up a new experience for us musicians in the creative process.”
The French musician's latest album, titled 'Oxymore', is a revolutionary electronic album recorded in immersive 360-degree sound, accompanied by a surreal virtual reality experience.
It's Jarre's 22nd album, which harkens back to the musician's first major recording, 1976's 'Oxygene', which catapulted him to the heights of success.
However, Jarre says he's "not interested" in what he did before. He is more motivated by what new technology can bring to the scene.
The album is also a tribute to French electronic music and a tribute to the late French composer Pierre Henry.
