Post subject: Electronica by Jean Michel Jarre (Album)
i cant wait for the new studio album ! :D

Interview at the german website "Welt online", December 2009 :

... Er trägt eine dunkle Sonnenbrille und bittet um Verzeihung: Bis fünf Uhr in der Früh habe er noch im Studio an einem neuen Albumprojekt gefeilt, mit welchem er an seinen bis dato größten Erfolg, den Synthesizerklassiker "Oxygène", anzuknüpfen beabsichtigt.

goggle-translator:
... He (Jarre) wears dark sunglasses and asks for forgiveness: Up to five o clock in the morning he had filed yet in the studio on a new album project with which he intends to build on its greatest success to date, the synthesizer classic "Oxygène".

I'd like to see (or lisen) something like Chronologie. But, not a new chronologie. Modern and past in the same way.
Robi - Fri Feb 05, 2010 3:44 pm

Yes, I read that article.

I would like to have Oxygene-Equinoxe-MagneticFields mix ! :-)

I want the album to be whatever Jean Michel wants. This being unique with sounds no-one has ever heard in this lifetime, so far. The music will be a masterpiece in comparison to anything beyond imagination. :peacemaan:

Yep, we may have a few of those but mainly Jean Michel's composed music.

Listen to some of the new music here, thanks to Dr Jones for uploading. Just beautiful.

Stereomatic - Sat Feb 06, 2010 1:51 pm

The track at the beginning is "Hollywood" by German band Cluster from the album Zuckerzeit (1974)

Well...somewhat in those terms I'd like to express it as well. :lol: :fine:
Just remember to produce such sounds you'll have to build a completely new instrument or record things no one has ever recorded before.
But who knows what Jean Michel is capable of, right? :wink:

ILIAS - Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:08 pm

new album / new sound / new instrument or whatever as far as it is anything NEW I am glad :P

For clarification, the new music teaser on Dr Jones's video is around about: 0:30 and 2:08. :fine:

1906 - Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:58 pm

The first one sounds like a Philip Glass track :-)
Jakob BC - Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:57 pm

Whatever that is, it sounds pretty cool and way different to Téo & Téa... quite what I always had in mind when JMJ talked about mixing old style with new :P
jarrepaul - Sun Feb 07, 2010 8:41 am

It sounds good i want a masterpiece this time
Robi - Sun Feb 07, 2010 10:17 am

Isn't it sounds like a new version of Oxygene 7 ?
jp8000 - Sun Feb 07, 2010 10:25 am

It sounded like oxygene 13 to me, but because he uses the same instruments on both oxygene's and in equinoxe, it gives a feel that there is a new oxygene or equinoxe on production
Kanta - Sun Feb 07, 2010 1:13 pm

Must be something wrong with me, I never compare JMJ's music with his previous music. :roll:
Santi Espejo - Sun Feb 07, 2010 1:15 pm

Nice!!! The return of the illusion. It sounds like an Oxygene 2.0 but better than Oxygene 7-13 in my ears...

Santi Espejo - Sun Feb 07, 2010 9:33 pm

Mmm, i thought that Jarre didn´t like Glass... But, the sequence has an affair... however, i have liked more the second excerpt. Ableton Live together with old and modern synths... oh, my God, now i want new Jarre stuff....

I had lost the illusion on his new albums, in last times. But now... i want to know more on this music! :D

Right before the end of that short "teaser" snippet, Kraftwerk's The Model popped up in my head. :shock:
I'm confident though that the final result will be completely different. :mrgreen:

Jon - Mon Feb 08, 2010 12:05 am

This shot reminds me of the double Jarre shot from the 1977 video of Oxygene 4

jeanbatman - Tue Feb 09, 2010 1:55 pm

I wonder where Francis and Dominique will be part in the process...

Maybe he'll do the same as for Chronologie, where everyone gave separate ideas and Jarre combing them rather than jamming together until a synth orgasm like the late 80's albums...

Kanta - Tue Feb 09, 2010 3:16 pm

Francis's involvement is probably criminal - Partners in Crime. :punch: :j/k:

Strange, I interviewed Vitalic about a week ago and he told me a collaboration with JMJ wasn't expected... or maybe he wanted to keep it secret...

Jakob BC - Thu Mar 25, 2010 9:56 am

Collabration or not... it's new material. Better than nothing, I tend to say. Even on top of an album like Téo & Téa.
Jon - Thu Mar 25, 2010 1:29 pm

Lets hope the new studio album is Jarre only, and these other collaborators are lined up for single remixes from that album. Surely, with what happened with T&T, Jarre will not burn his fingers "twice".

I think on Oxygene, Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields and Concerts in China he didn't use any presets - I don't think many of the synths during that period had any presets!

His synth programming and use of effects on Oxygen and Equinoxe is incredible and groundbreaking in my opinion. I know that Michel Geiss helped with the technical aspects of these two albums but I'm sure that Jarre created the majority of the sounds himself.

I think he was originally a really good sound designer, he just got lazy later on! I'm hoping that on the new album he will start designing his own sounds again!

True, but I still think it's an unfair name that some put on him. Music for Supermarkets would have been the first example of an album with lots of preset sounds on it, but it sounded like nothing else - it still does - Zoolook likewise. It's just that technology caught up with JMJ, and he took advantage of the new sounds available.

Today many have available what only a handful had before.

T&T was an example of JMJ giving too much deference to the prevailing music scene IMO.

AnDrOiD - Mon Mar 29, 2010 9:24 am

Perhaps a self programmed sound will sound like one of the millions of presets out there. :punch:

It is only a nickname, which was penned a long time ago by others. There is no denying that he has used his fair share of presets through his albums, and this is what people have picked upon. Nothing bad about that, but then there is nothing original about that. How many other musicians have done exactly the same.

Kanta - Mon Mar 29, 2010 4:55 pm

For me, Jarre presets mean Jarre presents. :robertdugenou:
Velodynamic - Wed Mar 31, 2010 6:31 pm

I think that nowadays there already are so many different types of electronic sounds available that what ever "new" sound you're trying to create, some people are still going to say; "just an other preset". :wink:

How many percentage would you give that Jarre will release the forthcoming albums by using concert promoters, just like Madonna?

So, no Warner, Sony, EMI or Universal, just direct distribution.

I am more for then against. Nice comparison between Madonna and JMJ. 8)

I believe so, because JMJ is in good shape (I guess)

(well, maybe not in 2010, but in the future)

Of course we must have the album he is doing right now at first.

matt222 - Mon May 03, 2010 12:16 pm

It better be good.

15 years of lame albums and it's about time he gave something back to the fans that has some substance.

After all, he has one of the greatest collections of working synthesizers at his disposal, let's not have another bundle of recordings of him messing around with the latest 'do-it-all' box with not much direction.

Well, Oxygene 7-13 and Metamorphoses are decent albums, there are some superb tracks at the Vizitors' RV in Space concert in 2001, Geometry of Love is OK and Oxygene's Variation 3 is one of the best tracks he's ever made. So granted, his output hasn't been as consistant as it used to be, but it's far from lame.

jarrepaul - Mon May 03, 2010 8:03 pm

Oxygene 7-13 is up there as one of my favourites.

That, and Sessions can be enjoyable every now and then. After that, Aero could have been better (best thing about that are the transistions between the tracks) and Teo&Tea was dissapointing, but now he's messing with them old ladies again (that sounds nasty :mrgreen: ) - so lets hope for some decent release soon :)

Oxy 7-13 was his last good studio album as Jarre. Meta, GOL, S2000, T&T are weak in comparison, specially when you compare the music with the name Jarre. It's not what were use too. Personally, the best track from Jarre since 1998 is, to me, Oxy Variation 3. That is a more defined and more Jarre-sounding track. I'm not saying that Meta, GOL, S2000 and T&T are bad, just that they don't hold my attention unlike previous works of Jarre. It's evident that Jarre has lost his course this past decade. Bowing down to those who think he should keep up with the times. He tryed that with T&T and look where that got him.

Goudeskitchen - Wed May 05, 2010 10:53 am

I think it could be quite possible with the new stuff sounding more 'Old-Skool Jarre' than the recent stuff, based on the new offerings such as 'Variations 1-3', that new track linking 'Oxygène VI' with 'Oxygène XII' ('Variation 4' is it?) and the new track 'Adagio'.

True, 'Adagio' does need a lot of work (a melody line, a change of chord progression, basic bassline etc.) but from what I heard it does sound promising and he hasn't played anything later than 1997 in his recent setup so maybe he's purposefully distancing himself away from the post-1997 material, so that he can get 'in the zone' and make another old-skool album. :D

But, to be honest, I quite liked Sessions 2000, even it was a quick album to get out of the Dreyfus contract! :nod:

Well, yeah...during promo visit in Tours, he mentionned fall of this year as period of new album release.
We'll see.

Kanta - Thu May 06, 2010 11:19 am

On JMJ’s MySpace page it mentions that his record label is:
Record Label: Aero Productions
Type of Label: Indie

An independent record label (or indie record label) is a record label operating without the funding of or outside the organizations of the major record labels.

moviemaker - Wed May 26, 2010 11:36 pm

I would not say Jarre's output has been lame by any means. Changed a little but so does everyone's taste.

Oxygene 7-13 is one of his best albums in my humble opinion. I still think Teo & Tea is great.

Revolutions is from the "Golden Era" of Jarre and as far as I'm concerned it can die there.

Many of his albums have somethings I really like and somethings that are annoying. For me Oxygene, Equinoxe, Magnetic Fields, Rendez-Vous, Oxygene 7-13 were perfect from beginning to end. Would almost say the same thing about Chronologie.

Zoolook, a great album but there is one song that is just annoying.

Metamorphoses is a very good album but I'm just not crazy about vocals when it comes to Jarre.

For me Waiting for Cousteau would be a perfect album except for Calypso 1 which just goes on and on but I do like the memories that album conjures up. And it is filled with energy. Still, I'm not crazy about the Steel Drums. For some reason it dates the music for me. Actually Cousteau is a near perfect album for me too but the most annoying aspect is it's just too short!

The stuff he did with Aero (in-between fills plus new tracks and re-imagined tracks) was really nice as were the variations on the re-release of Oxygene.


To say his output for the last 15 years is lame is just a$$inine.

jarrepaul - Thu May 27, 2010 6:17 am

Totally agre with what moviemaker said there. I've been listening to jarre for over 20 years. I collected his music for collecting sake never really listening to the albums. Until recently when walking the dog headphones on and totally quiet i am now getting to hear the things i have missed before. Geometrey of love is a totally amazing album i would personally rate this quite high on my list. I don't know what to expect from a new album hopefully it will be great.

Pat Gleeson - Thu May 27, 2010 10:10 am

I would agree with most of what you say, Moviemaker - apart from T&T. It's a difficult album to love, specifically as the bad tracks are truly dreadful - the main culprit 'Fresh News' which is all the worse being the opening track of the album - a crucial choice especially for (usually) instrumental works as JMJ's.

I know a lot of people who hated T&T because of tracks like 'Fresh News', and can't get past those to appreciate the superb ones like 'Touch to Remember', 'In The Mood For You' etc.

I could not believe my ears when 'Fresh News' greeted my speakers as the opening salvo in JMJ's first official new album in 7 years ...

AnDrOiD - Thu May 27, 2010 12:35 pm

What's wrong with "Fresh News"? :P

The only track I can't stand listening to is "Beautiful Agony", can't stand that moaning. :roll:

I love the Fresh News track...it put a smile on my face when i first heard it. One of my favourites of T&T, along with Touch to Remember.

What's worse is the title track, especially the long version which doesn't add anything to the album..and Melancholic Rodeo. Beautifull Agony would have been a great track without the moaning.

Okay... On ZooLook it's Diva. I admit it. Ethnicolor I and Ethnicolor II are my favorite. Perfect bookends.

But I also like Fresh News on T&T. A lot. Actually, like someone said it has great energy. Wen I heard that I thought this is gonna be great.

Chatterbox seems sort of lazy for lack of a better word--as in there doesn't see to be a ton of creativity/thought put into this songs.

But what I really despise is that he has the perfect closing song for the album with Melancholic Rodeo (a simply fantastic song which I always picture being played on the Sand Dunes of Northern Africa by Jarre) but Noooo...

Jarre has to go and ruin it with Téo & Téa 4 AM Remix--Ugh--What was he smoking?

On my iphone/ipod I just don't include that remix at the end of the album. Jarre ingeniously added that great little sound of the tape rewinding and 'Click" for the start of Malancholic Radio and then the album ends with another "click"--like a mix tape/infinite playlist--goes perfect with Jarre's Teo & Tea love concept--makes the album so much better--try it! :smoke:

Haha.... I know. Opinions are like... well you know everyone has one but yes for sone reason I really like Fresh News. I'm curious what specifically don't you like about that song. Also off topic I don't know why others get so offended with the moaning of beautiful agony. Too me the whole T&T album seems so tongue-in-cheek. But now even Jarre is ashamed it seems. I don't think he should be. We need to embrace our failures as much as our triumphs.


C'etait une erreur cet album, une connerie. Sur un plan personnel, j'avais plein de galères et je me suis amusé à jouer avec des samples, comme une récréation. Et on l'a sorti comme album. Mais quand je le réécoute aujourd'hui... Je l'assume, hein, il faut bien assumer ce qu'on fait, mais je ne le referais pas. (This album was a mistake, a dumb thing to do. I had a lot of personal problems at the time, and I kept myself entertained playing with these samples. And then they were released as an album. But when I listen to the album today... well, one has to stand behind one's own work, I guess, but I really wouldn't do it again.)

Sorry to BUMP a topic guys and girls, but when is this new album supposed to be out and does anyone rekon we could be hearing some of it at the O2?
To be honest I thought this 2010 tour could be the stage for a new album. Audiences all over Europe would have got a taste and it would have gone a long way to increase album sales.

Not known yet.
I think it's a "bad step" not releasing a new album before/during 2010 tour, e.g. in September, because a new material would generate more news on tour aswell, and reverse : promotion tour would be good together with promoting new album. Then we'll see.

Pat1982 - Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:45 pm

If a new album is scheduled for x-mas, shouldn't promotion start in september or oktober at least?
I think 2011 is more likely... Jarre's albums always have had delays.

Since he says he's been writing/recording the album whilst touring, that does suggest to me that it will be analogue again, since he has also embraced this original technology for his live shows - going back to his roots, and realising this is not only what he does best, but what people expect of him. This sound is timeless.

I bet that you have seen the video from the studio of JMJ, and there he is recording a song using the clavia's instrument (and the computer). so I don't believe that the album will be fully analog.

GeeJee - Mon Oct 11, 2010 12:40 pm

AFAIK new album will be mostly analog.

The Nord Stage JMJ is using is possibly just to play around/fiddle/compose etc.
Although the synth section of this should not be underestimated... I find it very useful :wink2:

He was asked after the Cardiff concert when the new album would be out. He said it had been delayed until next year due to the recent losses he suffered in his family.

I read a recent interview when the same thing was said - I didn't know his mother had passed away, which is sad.

It would be interesting to know what state the album is at - half done, nearly done, complete, or just started!

As far as I know for the double CD "Essentials & Rarities" JARRE is going to manage the artwork. Don't know if finally the picture (his multicolor trousers) that was included in his newsletters is part of it.

I hope you all remember that he thought about us while he makes new music. I wonder if he thought about us a bit when he made T&T. :punch:

T&T ? That was too fast, was made in a night, in some hours. Remember..."Fresh News", so he watched news after the dinner....then "Beautiful Agony" performed with Anne...then "Melancholic Rodeo" with Anne aswell :nod: ...so, then, still late night, he sat in the studio and completted Teo&Tea.
Voilá. :punch:

Like I have told earlier, I wished for that kind of album on old Jarre.net forum many years ago, and he filled my wish, so I'm happy, that he really did that.

(it is really a shame that he now regrets that he composed T&T, and no songs will be performed, when in concert )

ps. Teo&tea, Ok, do it fast and Vintage would nicely fit to the setlist of the concert to give nice balance for the old and the new.

I agree about that he regrets it. I wonder what else he regrets. :fine:

shadow - Sat Jan 29, 2011 2:57 pm

I still wonder why Jarre regrads having made Téo & Téa, although it may be his worst work, it's still better then most music that's being made the last couple of years. But I'm still thinking that music should never be considerd a mistake, there is always someone who can enjoy it and it still has more then enough tracks that are amazing :)
Jon - Sat Jan 29, 2011 6:42 pm

It is removed from his more regarded "classic" material. He did say at the time it was something he wanted to get of his chest, so to speak.

He's done it, got it out of the way and moved on by the looks of things if his latest comment is anything to go by.

Lastly he often regrets not to have made more film music: he refused Midnight Express, American Gigolo, and Cat People; and he also ironises that these refusals helped Giorgio Moroder's career! :punch:

jarrepaul - Tue Feb 01, 2011 2:32 pm

If Teo & Tea was a let down what was sessions. Teo & Tea has a few half decent tracks the last time I listened to sessions I turned it off. I know it was not a main stream release but at a time when money was tight I found it hard not to be upset. I will buy anything Jarre does but if he does anything like that again I will be very annoyed. There is 1 good track on sessions that's about it. OK rant over thank you.
GeeJee - Tue Feb 01, 2011 4:47 pm

Sessions is actually pretty great. Works very well on a hot summer day 8)
Velodynamic - Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:22 pm

I don't mind Sessions 2k that much. May 1 is an interesting track.
The rest is, well...overall. Relaxing music pure and simple. :)

al - Mon Feb 07, 2011 12:02 am

Doesn't Derezzed by Daft Punk (from Tron soundtrack) sounds a bit like Teo & Tea (the song) by JMJ? It could be on the same album...

Yes, it's a bit comparable. Especially the bass/drums. AND.. the tune is going nowhere, basically. Just like T&T. :fine:

Of course I don't believe it can be a new ' Teo & Tea'...

If Jarre said that T&T was a mistake, don't think he will be churning out an album of similar style for the fear of burning his finger, twice.

There was a picture earlier today (I can't find it anymore) showing JMJ tweaking his ARP2600 while someone else was playing an Ondes Martenot. The title was 'trying new sounds' or something like that.

Sounds promising to me. The Ondes Martenot is a great instrument. 8)

The guy is Jean-Loup Dierstein .

synthmann - Wed Jun 08, 2011 7:05 am

so now E&R is out, which I bought, I first admired the artwork, casing and vinyl look which are great, I listened to it once and decided it's not for everyday. So back into the cd player went the remastered 'catalog' version of Kraftwerk's Computerworld which I recently discovered to be absolutely brilliant.

Now we can get back to a topic I hope to hear in my cd player as soon as possible; is there any news on when Jarre's real new studio album will be out? Is it still expected in 2011?

ah bummer, it's been talked about for so long now and the Th ou Caf clip with this song excerpt also has been a while.

Can't wait for the magical moment of turning off all phones and the internet, unplugging the doorbell, closing the curtains and putting a new Jarre studio album in the cd-player and sit back as I prepare to be musically and sonically amazed, then press play and hear the first notes!

Jarre is thinking of an innovating way of releasing is music. Will there be a physical release ? Could be or could be not.

One thing I'm pretty sure of, Jarre will wait for his release to coincide to a huge concert next year, the way Rendez-vous (Houston), Revolutions (Docklands), Waiting Cousteau (La Dfense) were released.

If it is early in the year, the concert is more likely to occur in Southern Hemisphere for weather considerations.

Rather 2012. It was stated so in a swiss webzine.


ah bummer, it's been talked about for so long now and the Th ou Caf clip with this song excerpt also has been a while.

Can't wait for the magical moment of turning off all phones and the internet, unplugging the doorbell, closing the curtains and putting a new Jarre studio album in the cd-player and sit back as I prepare to be musically and sonically amazed, then press play and hear the first notes!


Jarre is thinking of an innovating way of releasing is music. Will there be a physical release ? Could be or could be not.

One thing I'm pretty sure of, Jarre will wait for his release to coincide to a huge concert next year, the way Rendez-vous (Houston), Revolutions (Docklands), Waiting Cousteau (La Dfense) were released.

If it is early in the year, the concert is more likely to occur in Southern Hemisphere for weather considerations.

It also goes by the name of Metamorphoses, so may have originally been seen as the title track for that album. For some reason it got dropped from the tracklisting along with The Sun and others.

The point I was making earlier was that JMJ has always had so many more ideas than he can or chooses to make happen. I remember many moons ago reading an article on Cosmopolitan magazine, the interviewer noticing "many Gallic ideas tripping off his tongue ... struggling to get them out (referring to his command of English then which was not apparantley as good as now).

I dont know what you are talking about. He already walked, then ran, then flied - in that order. You are reading way too much into rumours, misinterpretations, misquotes, etc. We do know that AeroProd and JMJ is very careful about not confirming anything until it is 100% sure, so JMJ would never unofficially promise an album that wasnt sure. If he did promise it, it would be backed by at least an official press release that would circulate in the media and news agencies. Until now he has only said he is working on a new album. Being busy touring, one can understand it isnt coming out. We just got a full CD of old unreleased rarities, stuff that wouldnt have seen the light of day if Dreyfus has lived another 15 years, so no complaints, please! :-)

Secondly, if there is a decline it has nothing to do with internet rumours. Only hardcore fans like we people here read them, and we count a few hundred. We make up 0.1% of his fanbase, if not less (literally). Most fans do not follow him as close as we do, and hence they dont sit around feeling "misinformed" or being annoyed by rumours that are not confirmed. I assure you, these rumours and brief comments WE read a few times a year make NO impact on his general fan base.

Besides, I dont think there is a decline in popularity. No more decline than any other artist. 110 concerts in 3 years... maybe the biggest French tour ever in terms of ticket sales.... If that is a decline, many other artists would kill to experience that kind of decline :-)

It may happen that FDM will take care of the release. I peronally think it's no matter which label release the album, as far as the album is a success now...

JMJ really should release the next album in 2012! For various and obvious reasons, I think no need to go into details!

shadow - Tue Nov 01, 2011 11:28 pm

Well the most obvious reason would be a bloody 5 year gap between his last two albums, don't remember Jarre ever having had such a big gap. Even if there wasn't an album for 4 years, there would atleast be something released like a concert album, or a major concert would take place (PLD). But not a compilation disc which featured with exception of one track nothing new, and nothing that the fans haven't heard already before.

And let's be honest, Essentials and Rarities was made for the fans, and not the casual listener. I still wish the Rarities part would have been done better with more tracks, and more varation in the tacks by adding Cartolina, Popcorn and Zoolook Extended Remix... But yeah, that was wishfull thinking :P

I tend to agree with that. Also the way JMJ uses English can lead to misinterpretations sometimes (through no fault of anyone). I remember when he was on the BBC promoting Aero and talking about the upcoming Beijing concert saying it would be broadcast "in this country" meaning China not the UK.

Jon - Thu Dec 08, 2011 9:38 pm

I'm still suprised we have never had a nice big boxset released of Jarrities. One disc (like E&R) does not even scrape the surface of what fans want and doesn't do the artist much justice.
Pat Gleeson - Fri Dec 09, 2011 11:00 am

I think E&R was a tester to see what the market is for JMJ rarities. Despite the thawing of relations between JMJ and FDM, I still feel Jarre would prefer to deal with another label - one with bigger distribution.
This upcoming album has a lot riding on it, and it needs all the promo and distribution it can get. He hasn't had a bone-fide hit since Aero in 2004 (apart from T&T in France). 8 years is an age these days in the music business. Nowadays, the first weeks sales almost certainly determine the chart placing of an artist. The days of entering the chart at No. 71 and slowly rising up the chart to barely miss out on the top 10 are long gone for most - as happened in the UK chart with Equinoxe.
Despite opinion on chart placings being divisive, they are important. If you don't chart, you don't get noticed, you don't sell and you don't get record deals. Major distribution and good promo only happen with a good label behind you.
IMO a new album may be his last release via conventional means - CD - the age of the ephemeral download is here - like it or not, and any rarities would be released online only, to be played via the ubiquitous iPad etc. etc.

GlennFolkvord - Fri Dec 09, 2011 10:36 pm

Does he mention two ALBUMS or two DISCS in the interview? It could be another 2-disc project like T&T, one surround and one regular. Or one studio album and one live album packaged together. I would be surprised if we're talking about two separate album projects.

Any other details at all in that interview?

He says in french : " Et la maintenant je vais sortir deux nouveaux albums en fait. Pas un mais deux, comme a fesait longtemps que je n'en avais pas sortie, je vais en sortir deux d'un coups."

It's kind of the opposite T&T so I guess something in between could be nice.

Rubberlips - Wed Jan 18, 2012 1:48 am

I don't think Jarre needs a new album to be a hit. Any new album would be delivered to his large fan base to support another tour (where the real money is these days) and additional take up would come from those "non-fans" with more than a passing interest in electronic music. Downloads are where sales are at these days but Jarre equally knows that his main audience will want physical copies of his work - a smaller record company with minimal promotion will probably suit him just fine!

I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear more analogue on this album, as the desire to hear that analogue synths is stronger than it ever was amongst those who appreciate electronic music. I think Jarre has picked up on this, which is what his Oxygene presentations were all about. I recall that at this time he was picking up many additions to his analogue collection (including some Russian ones) which he must have been spending all of this time getting to grips with.

I think the two album / double album thing could come from a desire to hit some kind of commercial groove. I imagine something like the first disc will be analogue sounds melded with modern technologies, while the second disc would be a "dance /remix" approach if you will, an unwillingness to knock the Teo & Tea approach on the head in a desire to remain relevant with today's electronic music audience.

That, together with the hint that he will release on vinyl...

Should be a good year... but let's face it, that "good year" will probably end up being 2013, or maybe even 14... whenever he can justify going out on tour again I suspect!

Oh. Happy New Year everyone!

I take your advice.
I think he should release the albums (if two we consider) in a several months gap time (e.g. To&Ta/Oxygne 3D), so he can maximize publicity over the whole year.

Slightly off topic, but don't you think the Oxygene 3D release was to "make up" for where he went wrong. He alienated a lot of people with Teo & Tea as I recall, the Oxygene releases and subsequent tour seemed (to me at least) Jarre's way of making up.

I'm probably wrong on that one though.

shadow - Wed Jan 18, 2012 8:10 pm

I personally like To & Ta quite a bit so no need to make that up, Oxygene New Master Recording while welcome, was just horribly mastered compared to the original recordings. Same goes for: Live in Your Living Room. These two things were absolutely perfect for celebrating the 30th anniversary of Oxygene (minus the crappy mastering), but nothing more to me....

Thrown in a almost completly naked woman in the videoclip of one of the songs, and have some weird visuals, and your album is a sell over million copies no problem. Music these days isn't about the music, it's about the image that surrounds it, has been for a long time already...

Fans know about his parent's death, the Jarre Technologies issue growing up on him and divorce from Anne, which was quite painful. Not to mention Francis Dreyfus' death. It's not like he's been having a two-year break. I can't blame Jean Michel from making shifts in his personal life which is way more important than views from the fans.

Let's see Depeche Mode for example.
Dave said they made about 20 demos for the yet no-name forthcoming album.
"Some songs are very promising in their current form, others still require more work, but we are moving ahead well."
Recordings expected to finish by end of the year. "We have deadline by end of November and I see no reason to change our method" - Dave.
"We have fine plans and will be touring next year."

I just wrote the above to see the difference how things can go on. With Jarre, the certain is the uncertain, unfortunately. When will you read such like things above regarding Jarre?

Vumiko - Mon May 21, 2012 10:16 pm

"Studio Album ????" should be the thread name.

As many of you know, Metamorphoses was Jarre's last true Album. He put a lot of effort its creation and I always considered it to be a modern day Zoolook. JMJ fans have always been mixed on Meta but I always enjoyed it. All music he did after it are more like "side projects" (Sessions 2000, GOL, AERO) and one grand disaster (T&T).

Hopefully he can get his creative spirit back and create one last master work. It would be a shame for T&T to be his last musical creation....

Dr_Jones - Mon May 21, 2012 11:03 pm

Vumiko wrote:

To be honest, he did have a lot of help from Joachim Garraud there...

But yes, I said this several times, I think it was his goodbye-album, hence the title. It was his goodbye as big name composer and time to step down to smaller things. After that, it was time for experiments. In fact, his musical output in the 00s was bigger than in the 90s, but it was all side-projects and experimental music: jazz (Sessions 2000), soundtrack (Qui Veut Devenir Une Star, Match TV), lounge (GoL), live tracks (ViZitors, Acropolis tracks, China tracks, Water for Life track, etc), dance (T&T), musique concrete and wibbly-wobbly stuff (Interior Music, Bourges), that's a lot of albums and unreleased material, mostly in the not-classic Jarre style.

And I think Variation 3 is one of the best things he composed in the 00s.

Vumiko - Tue May 22, 2012 12:47 am

"To be honest, he did have a lot of help from Joachim Garraud there... "


Sure, but the same can be said for literally ALL of JMJs post Deserted Palace material: he's always had "help" in the studio.

To me one of the biggest mysteries no one mentions here is this: what does JMJ truly sound like? If he were locked in the studio alone, with no other "collaborators", how would his music sound? It's a very good question because if you think about it, he has never made a true "solo" album (pre-Oxygene). I want to hear JMJ by himself. ...what does he sound like? We may never know...

shadow - Tue May 22, 2012 11:57 am

Personally I think not much different then he did with Oxygene and Equinoxe but alot more primitive sounding. Considering Deserted Palace was his one true solo album, some of the tracks are quite good but they just sound very flat (Windswept Canyon) but the track itself is actually pretty good, also there is a small piece in the Interior Music near the end, Gossip, Erosmachine all somewhat to me sound like Happyness is a Sad Song. Personally I think that's the kind of music I consider true Jarre, but we'll never know unless we would kidnap him and lock him into a room for half a year to make a new album :P

That does not work :) You must also catch Charlotte R. and locked them together into a room. :mrgreen:

Seriously: I would strongly recommend him for at least a year, going away from the music industry . TOTAL! Other creative people do the same, otherwise nothing works.
I like to repeat it again: With internal or external coercion... nothing works .

He must rid himself of them, meet new people, not only from the music industry, new impressions, new surroundings, new activities. Just anything that has to do with this music industry. From best, no internet, not even to read here in this forum. :( I really wish he can do it. Immersion.
Maybe take a trip around the world, looking for a place in the world, which offers peace and inspiration. ( A trip to the North Pole, an expedition into the Amazon jungle, snorkel on a Maldives island etc. ) Just off the fans and people which always want something from him.
Note:
Carl Orff has only composed one great music: Carmina Burana (and some unspectacular music for the Olympic Games ) and he was always an respectable artist. Till now !

To me one of the biggest mysteries no one mentions here is this: what does JMJ truly sound like? If he were locked in the studio alone, with no other "collaborators", how would his music sound? It's a very good question because if you think about it, he has never made a true "solo" album (pre-Oxygene). I want to hear JMJ by himself. ...what does he sound like? We may never know...


I think we HAVE heard his true solo sound, because his process is not about working 100% alone in a (mentally speaking) closed box. JMJ is the musical chef who blends, kneads and cooks the way he wants, but without ingredients (= studio helpers) no chef can make great food. If you have ideas in your head that you need a trigger to get out, those ideas are still your own even if someone else assists in triggering them.

The greatest evidence for me that we are hearing the real and pure JMJ in all his regular albums is that they all sound different to eachother, while still retaining a red thread, or "that JMJ feeling" (and by that I am not just talking about typical sounds, it could also be the narrative concept as in T&T). A Steven Spielberg film always looks like a Steven Spielberg film, even they look different to eachother, and even if they have different DoPs or set decorators. To me, it's the same with Jarre; his albums all sound different, but they all sound Jarre.

In other words the music is set to be released only being held back by the studio untill they feel like releasing it? Well atleast that's progress, can't wait for a new Jarre CD in my collection. Now I'm just crossing my fingers for good mastering, and if not, I'll just rip the DTS surround sound channel of the DVD and downsample it to stereo, worked on: Aero, To & Ta, Jarre in China, Live in Your Living Room and Gdnsk (although the live concerts I had to re-redit back to the original CD tracklisting, but after couple of hours it's sound almost identical except better) :nod:

Do we think we will ever get a decent synthesizer album from Jarre again, his music is bloody awful these days and has a really cheap, childish feel to it. There are kids doing WAY better electronica these days and I bet they all used to idolise him infront of his huge Houston keyboard miming away to that fantastic Equinoxe 5.

You think I am dreary and boring yet you reply to my post. You have no idea the way I feel about JMJ. It is none of your business especially after just the few posts you have made since joining the forum. I can remove/edit your posts, just in case you cant see I am a Mod here. If you cant be polite with your opinions then you will be removed from the forum. You are certainly not a decent fan. There are ways to communicate your unhappiness with the way the future has been for JMJ. If you feel this way, no-one is preventing you from not being his fan. For your information, I dont think he is perfect. No-one is but he is the next best thing. You should count yourself lucky to have heard JMJs music in the first place. It is also none of your business whether Black Bird or I have posters of JMJ on our walls.

Depends on your definition of the word FAN. Im a fan of all Jarre's great and outstanding creations but not his poorer efforts - does that make me a 'bad' fan or just a unsentimental honest fan?

Will refrain from continuing as I have no desire to offend anyone so sensitive to straightforward chat.

Pat Gleeson - Thu Oct 04, 2012 11:57 am

With all due respect Waldorf, everybody is is entitled to their opinion. I personally draw the line at personal critiques of others for theirs. Everyone here knows the work and dedication Kanta gives to this forum - that's how she shows her respect for the man and his music.
I want a new JMJ album as much as anyone, but I'd wait until hell freezes over to avoid a repeat of a T&T style album. I enjoy his latter albums such as Sessions 2000, Bourges, Geometry of Love etc. but of course not as much as the classics.
My main beef with T&T was it wasn't so much a JMJ album as it was a Tim Hufken idea of what a JMJ album should be today. If he comes up with a classic next, then great. If he doesn't I still have his back catalogue to enjoy ....

BTW I have an Oxygene Marigny poster in my 'mancave' does that count ? :mrgreen:

We can't like everything a person does. If you have taken the time to read the forum you may realise that my approach has always been truthful but drawing the line to being rude. Not all JMJ's music is equal for me in standards.

It is a bit late as you have already offended me. Being sensitive and straightforward is part of life and I do not wish to waste life. I hope you will refrain from being rude anymore.

It's just a dream. If it will ever come true I have no clue.

Quote:
"A fan, sometimes also called aficionado or supporter, is a person who supports with a liking and enthusiasm for something, such as a band, a sports team or entertainer. Fans of a particular thing or person constitute its fanbase or fandom. They may show their enthusiasm by being a member of a fan club, holding fan conventions, creating fanzines, writing fan mail, or by promoting the object of their interest and attention. Some fans even take it as far as impersonating their idol or go into a state of insanity by believing they are the character the person is obsessed with."/wikipedia

Yes, I think he must be have new material for this concert. I fear it will otherwise be no more major concerts. :? maybe only concerts for real fans in small locations .

"Naturally we asked Dominique also whether he now only pursue their own projects, or even collaborate with Jarre. Further cooperation, he is apparently not averse, but Jarre currently working on his new album, and if this is done, you'll see. The work on the album would last very long, as Jarre here with a lot of people working together and a lot of conversations and telephone calls were made​​. In fact, already some time ago announced that Jarre would produce an album together with a number of French electro-musicians. Accordingly, these are apparently not a remix album, but actually is a studio album of new music produced Jarre in collaboration with other artists. Dominique estimated that up to completion still could pass three or four months and then it might be published in March just to match the planned concert in Perth.
The concert project in Australia we also Dominique and his team were not able to say much, except that obviously too early too much information had already leaked to the public. Officially, the concert is still not confirmed."

David Muoz, from Fairlight Jarre (Spain), was in Alcal and take some words with Jean Michel Jarre:


PISCES: There's a first question that interests us all your fans. When will your next work? Lately has spoken several times on this issue and we are impatient to know something.

- JMJ: (Silence ... look at Louis Hallonet... more silence ... look at me ... smile ... smile more ... I get the second hug a day!)
- Next question? (Okay, I get the "indirect", if I follow that route will close in band, but I saw in his eyes that left little to the news)

But not in the least bit surprising. JMJ keeps things to himself. Always has. He also has a very dry sense of humour. For years fans wondered why Equinoxe 5 wasn't on the live setlist. He said "no particular reason" - an answer which seemed be giving the fans short shift. He then proceeded to include a short clip in the Aero album - just so we wouldn't take things so seriously.
JMJ does things his way - he ain't going to change, nor do I wish him to now.

Dear Pierre!

First of all, I wish you Happy new year! Hope you were having party time on day of Saint-Sylvestre and you are so well!

New year, new times, new days.
May I say some things about 2012 and jean Michel, as well.
2012, at the beginning, seemed to be a exciting year. We could hear about plans for 2 album releases, none of them were unfortunately released as of yet. We could also hear about Perth project, but I know this is ultimately (?) up to promoters and sponsorship. One just can not do anything if there is no fund for such a concert project. The recent Perth situation is understandable and we hope it will happen in 2014, then.

In my opinion, albums release, well it's an other matter. It's a thing the musician is composing and completing the music. That's fine. But...recently, cristalised Lalique and other luxury Jarre Technologies products (from which an average fan can't afford to buy!) seemed way more important for Jarre!!! This is kinda sad, that he does not even care of people who have had bought his concert tickets and albums! We, fans, are the least important by now. There was no even a "Happy new year" from Jean Michel personally! No facebook, no Jarreblog...
I believe the London business takes much time, but I question, is it really big effort for Jean Michel to say Hello for us?
The communication, which is, I think, important for JM also on any level, fails to reach fans! And this is below critcs, sorry.

I support JMJ's academy ambitions set up in London. This is nice initiative.
Musicians, actors, etc doing these kind of things, so changing profile more or less, when they have no inspirations in their original activity usually. I hope JMJ did not loose his inspiations composing records and he has many things to tell us in the language of music! We are now looking forward to hear pieces, I can assure you!!!

Hope the comunication will be imporiving a bit from now...and don't think about big things always : a studio photo, a short message. This is not big request I think.

Thank you for reading Pierre and let's continue adventures in the field of music and concerts and projects.

And : more "hello" from jean Michel!

Thank you again!

Robi, JMJ's Facebook page is for mainly PR only and keeping major official news available for fans and that also includes his Twitter page. Up to the management and maybe JMJ how to run these sites.

Yes, Im also sorry about Jean Michels communication break. :? Even though he has a lot to do, he had at least be able to send a short greeting for Christmas and New Year. :(

And I also agree with Robi.

Robi - Fri Jan 04, 2013 5:28 pm

I also know I'm right ; yeah it is up to them. Go on net, browse facebook or whatever, username, password and THATS ALL!

Okay, maybe a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year message would have been nice. :)
Velodynamic - Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:57 pm

I also think it's a pity that now a days JMJ totally seems to have forgotten he's own fan base. :?
Yet I hope he will take a few minutes off from the Aero toys sometimes this year or before it's too late.

shadow - Sat Jan 05, 2013 4:24 pm

While I get the Aero toys, who is honestly buying that? Me as the avarage fan can't cough up a good 799,- for a speaker system, I can't I have more important things to buy :?

Maybe Jarre musical output in 2013... :punch:



****



The last sentence is interesting. Though, it shows Jarre may be far from completing the album. Still a question, which album does the article refer to? The collaboration or the "self-made" album?

Because we know there will be 2 albums in 2013...again... :smoke: :mrgreen: :wtf2:

Michel Geiss response for me

".........
Regarding a future work with Jean Michel, as I have no request from him, I suppose he has another idea. Some time ago, at least one year ago, he asked me to work on his new projet, but didn't ask me again.
Best regards
Michel "

Once they might work together again, though, having known Jarre, he can change his plans in a minute.

I can't believe that this thread has lasted for nearly 3 years and that people are still hoping for a new album. Just like JMJ perhaps it's time to move on. Recycling the same old hopes and dreams won't bring a new album any faster if at all. What it will do is bring more frustration and disappointment :(

shadow - Sat Jan 26, 2013 6:04 pm

The real frustrating part are the promises without anything actually happening, if you're not planning on making a new album then simply say so :|

Yes ! Thats the point. But the media via internet sometimes makes from a mosquito an elephant. Maybe he told something, maybe not. I think he is working on an new album, but it takes time, and I think he maybe don`t be satisfied with the result. :nico: (?) It is his privilege to destroy and change products again.
For about 20-30 years very few people knew that artists are working on a new album. only little pressure for the musician, no disappointed hopes for the fans.
Maybe he should do it like David Bowie, destroying any hope of a new album and then after 8-10 (?) Years there is suddenly a new product :mrgreen:

It takes time to make a new album for any artist e.g. years and years. At least, the thought is there. That should be enough for any hardcore fan. Mind you, any respectable fan would just appreciate that he is doing something.

The oddest, most bizarre thing is the question a Spanish fan asked him, about the new album and he refused to answer it. Mind you, this was the end of last year.

And it's not about taking time to make a new album. There's a perfectly complete album lying around since 2002/2003 called "Expirimental 2001", a spiritual successor of "Sessions 2000". This album, recently shown by Francis Rimbert on his Facebook, has never been released and nothing has been done with it (probably, it might have evolved to the Bourges album or something like that, we don't know that). This, plus the two albums he's been working on with other artists and "his personal album", as he described it in an interview...

Naturally we asked Dominique also whether he now only pursue their own projects, or even collaborate with Jarre. Further cooperation, he is apparently not averse, but Jarre currently working on his new album, and if this is done, you'll see. The work on the album would last very long, as Jarre here with a lot of people working together and a lot of conversations and telephone calls were made??. In fact, already some time ago announced that Jarre would produce an album together with a number of French electro-musicians. Accordingly, these are apparently not a remix album, but actually is a studio album of new music produced Jarre in collaboration with other artists. Dominique estimated that up to completion still could pass three or four months and then it might be published in March just to match the planned concert in Perth.

7 Nov 2012:
David Muoz, from Fairlight Jarre (Spain), was in Alcal and take some words with Jean Michel Jarre:

These conversations may include record label agreements. You must also remind that Jarre and Vitalic have had an artistic/financial disagreement one year ago, the process of the collaboration album was slowed down for some reason.

Robi - Mon Jan 28, 2013 6:34 pm

:rofl:

You know what? After all these years...there is chance...

Seriously, I think Jarre is just desperate to release new album in the perfect way : "how many discs should I put on sale? Through which record label? At all : through any record label? How will I get well-paid? Etc...

So all this delay issue is, I think, up to how he'll be able to sell himself / new album.

jeanbatman - Mon Jan 28, 2013 7:38 pm

What would have been real interesting in Dr. Jones' calendar would have been the Jarre Tech releases... That way the puzzle would be somehow more complete, and that could explain that he can't do both at that same time : composing and promoting his high-tech stuff, which is refreshing and exciting for someone loose in the studio 12 hours a day.

And I give credit to Robi on the release issue, he's right.

Maybe he's learning to play new instruments, never know.

True. I was summarizing this thread (by reading through it). It missed some things here and there (like the collaborations/personal remark made by JMJ himself). I might read through the JarreTech thread to make the timelime of that :-)

"Jean-Michel Jarre promises a new album with collaborations this year"

With "Oxygene", Jean-Michel Jarre pulled himself over 35 years ago to the altars of the then nonexistent Olympus electronic music. And in late 2013, announced Efe, this pioneer and master will return with a new album, surrounded by some of the members of that pantheon that he helped build.

It will "probably in September or October" and will come with a new tour that could go to Spain, as revealed during an interview on its way through the latest edition of March International du Disque et de l'Edition Music (MIDEM) in Cannes (France).

"There are many electronic artists who tell me I'm one of their influences, but I say that it works both ways," said French, citing references consolidated as The Chemical Brothers and Moby - "a great friend of mine" - in addition to the French Justice, Air and Sebastien Tellier.

"In Spain, also know young DJ very interesting, as John Tallabot" added the musician, who was appointed last November honorary member of the University of Alcal de Henares (Madrid).

At Midem 2013, closed on Tuesday, this visionary who recorded at home "Oxygene", the album that led to "the revolution of the 70s synthesizers", spoke about the bridges between French music and increasingly powerful music scene in Taiwan.

synthmann - Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:02 pm

well, ok. an announcement again. But we have seen the list compiled in an earlier post of the history of album related announcements. Supposedly an album was already finished by Jarre last summer. Is it the collaboration album or another? Does this mean we'll get another truly Jarre studio album besides the collaboration one? And why does it have to coincide with a tour? If an album is ready on the shelves now, please put it on iTunes so we can buy it. If the music is good, I'll still go to a concert later.

I'm just hoping for an album along the lines of equinoxe, oxygene, chronologie, rendez-vous, Magnetic Fields, Revolutions or oxygene 7-13. A classic Jarre style album.

Pat Gleeson - Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:42 pm

The last concrete (concrte?) announcement mentioned 2 albums. I suspect this announcement refers to the release that will be more prominent: "hip" collaborators, CD release, tour etc. The other, more Jarre-esque propsed release will be as mentioned earlier - download only - possibly a bonus on iTunes or equivalent with the main release.
Or not see a release at all :)

Robi - Sun Feb 03, 2013 4:34 pm

I kind of agree with Pat with regards to this very article.
I think this refers to the collaboration album
...If so, how does he consider touring the album : with or without the collaborators?

I think also that the more Jarre-ish albums would came after this above release.

Kanta - Sun Feb 03, 2013 8:27 pm

I have been reminded from one my JMJ French friends/fans that he did speak about this to us last year at Nuits Sonores...

With "Oxygne", Jean-Michel Jarre pulled himself over 35 years ago to the altars of the then nonexistent Olympus electronic music. And in late 2013, this pioneer and teacher announces return with a new album, surrounded by some of the members of that pantheon that he helped build.

And in China shines status as before, when other discs forge mythic as "Equinoxe" (1978) or "Magnetic Fields" (1981).
He blames the knowledge that exists in China classical music and the relationship between it and the electronics.
"There is a style like rock or hip hop, but a way of making music, like classical.'s Based on European heritage and so has that universal character so well understood in China," he explains.
In his speech, the electronics and connections becoming even as high and far-reaching as the themes that inspire and that led him to play in the Egyptian desert near Giza, and try at the Pyramids of Teotihuacan in Mexico (the set was lost in one shipwreck in the Atlantic Ocean a few weeks before the event).
No shares how to act in some DJ that just touch a button for their actions. "If you get on a stage, is to give something different to what is offered on the disc, in the recording," he argues.
And is that another major contributions to the scheme Jarre international music was monumental vision of the performing arts. He explains that when he started did not seem "very sexy" spending two hours on stage in front of a computer, so I thought how could transfer his spirit to live music.
"He was obsessed with opera as an art form. Why those composers as Verdi , Rossini and Wagner , with his magnificent music, wanted to work with carpenters, lighting technicians, painters and set designers? To give more on stage, "he replies.
Designed so overwhelming staging professional with over the years, jumped to the scene to work with rock bands like The Rolling Stones and U2 , champions of "stadium rock".
"I am very happy to have contaminated the music in this sense," he says.
He who came to gather two million people in 1990 in the district of La Dfense in Paris, is not afraid to accuse you of "pompous" or "reloaded".
"I like the poetic essence of the circus concept: act one night, to appropriate the place and disappear the next morning. To me that is the ultimate performance," he says.

Considering that: Oxygene, Equinoxe and Magnetic Fields have been re-released on Vinyl (although in horrible digital remastered form) aswell as Rarities (which apparently used identical masters as the CD and Digital release) there is quite a big chance, but I'll go with the digital and CD releases depending on the master. If it's better mastered on vinyl like: En Attendant Cousteu, Chronologie and especially Oxygene 7-13 then I'll be getting the Vinyl release :)

I can ski some mile into the woods and sample hours of analog silence. Specially now in winter. Snow absorbs sounds. :robertdugenou:
In todays society many people are exposed to sound pollutions of all kind. Sometimes it can even lead to sleep disorder.
For many people real silence has almost become a kind of rarity of its own.
In music it can be quite neat with a short break of silence just before the crescendo in a track. It's a classic.

Not quite. Say also loves to experiment and sent me songs and asked me to reinterpret. I do not know exactly what will be the purpose. All I can say is that I'm running."

A few days ago, as reported here, she was singing at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, and Jean-Michel Jarre attended this concert : on Thursday, we mentioned Jarre's new musical project with David L.

From the same page

"David L. recently gave an interview to Paris Match at the International Thriller Film Festival at Beaune (in which we found our actual cover photo).

In this interview, David L. mentioned a little musical project. The french composer Jean-Michel Jarre has recently sent him a few songs and asked him to mix them. David L. says that he doesn't know how they will be used, but he did it.'

Jon - Sun Jun 09, 2013 12:38 pm

Not knocking anyone's views or JMJ, but being a "perfectionist" does not enter into the scheme of things when you have to make a living and work to a time scale. An artist like Jarre has a time frame to work too if he is signed to a record label. They will only invest time and money into the venture if he can deliver and deliver on time. His last studio work was 2007. Since then we have had nothing but rumour after rumour from him that a album was in the works. It may be so, but dates that were mentioned have come and gone. If Jarre was with a record label, then the album would have been released as outlined above. There is no way he can be with anyone, so he is taking his time because that is exactly what he has, time. If he was with a record label they would be screaming down his neck to have the work finished in time. Personally I think JMJ has lost his way. He has become a 'was' rather than a 'is'. Shame really because the fans are suffering because of the outcome. It is almost like Jarre is disappearing into the background instead of being the forerunner.

In what way are fans suffering?

If he's called it a day then we have his catalogue of great music to enjoy, in my view this is preferable to the model of the likes of Edgar Froese who is intent on releasing as many albums as possible until he croaks, each slightly more useless than the last one.

If Jarre wanted to make his swansong album it would almost certainly be Oxygene 14 - 20 which would delight and annoy in equal measure, with those that love the old stuff and those that wanted something new. Either way he's going to struggle, his heart possibly just isn't in it any more.

Good luck to him, I'm certainly not 'suffering'.

Kanta - Mon Jun 10, 2013 10:02 am

Just my opinion, JM does his best and tries to fulfil his expectations. That makes him a perfectionist, for example. If for any other reason this goes against fans then that it up to them whether or not to support him. This does not just apply to JM but other artists as well. Fans should not dictate of what is expected of an artist. He is expanding his skills in other areas and is not disappearing, thank goodness i.e. CISAC President, attending Ibiza International Music Summit. Not necessarily disappearing because there is no new album, at the moment.

Music has been registered to French music corp SACEM (Edith Napias)

15 Oct 2012:
Jarrelook.de:
Naturally we asked Dominique also whether he now only pursue their own projects, or even collaborate with Jarre. Further cooperation, he is apparently not averse, but Jarre currently working on his new album, and if this is done, you'll see. The work on the album would last very long, as Jarre here with a lot of people working together and a lot of conversations and telephone calls were made??. In fact, already some time ago announced that Jarre would produce an album together with a number of French electro-musicians. Accordingly, these are apparently not a remix album, but actually is a studio album of new music produced Jarre in collaboration with other artists. Dominique estimated that up to completion still could pass three or four months and then it might be published in March just to match the planned concert in Perth.

7 Nov 2012:
David Muoz, from Fairlight Jarre (Spain), was in Alcal and take some words with Jean Michel Jarre:

PISCES: There's a first question that interests us all your fans. When will your next work be released? You have spoken several times on this issue and we are impatient to know something.

- JMJ: (Silence ... look at Louis Hallonet... more silence ... look at me ... smile ... smile more ... I get a second hug!)
- JMJ: Next question?

That was not the discussion here.

Yes and sometimes I am one of these fans who wait for a new album, new concert, etc. We just should be grateful he is doing something. If those feel they have been let down due to these "promises" then they can make a decision on what they choose to do being his fan or not being his fan.

We know for sure that Jarre met with people from "Record Makers" in 2008 and that he's kept in touch with these french guys. But since 2009, Jarre has mostly spoke of releasing music on Internet only. I'm sure Jarre can sell the album through his friends of Qobuz in an exclusive way in top-notch quality, and use the touring for accessing the medias for a wider-audience.

Kanta, with all due respect, who exactly is dictating? Time and time again people have wondered as to where the so-called new material is that JMJ himself (check Dr_Jones posts) has publicly announced were in the pipeline. Jean Michel either said it himself or he didn't. So when comment after comment is made that a new album is in the pipeline and expected by such a such date, those dates come and go, and no album, then you must expect people to ask "where is the album you were talking about". So why shoot people down in flames for asking? It is this way of thinking that makes the whole saga look bitter. If JMJ has thrown in the towel, so to speak, would be nice if the fans were informed so we know what to expect for the future instead of waiting patiently for this new album. Is that really too much to ask for? Because reading some of the posts here on a JMJ forum it appears it is.

My opinion is fans want a new album so badly so that is a form of dictation as a fan for the artist. The wait is making them frustrated and impatient due to the length of time. This is the most popular question asked, most of the time about a new album. So surely, that suggests that all if not most want a new album from him. We as fans will only be informed once all is official in anything. Nothing to suggest otherwise. When he speaks about a new album does not mean that will happen as changes can occur. He is human like the rest of us.

He is human like the rest of us.


But the point is; JMJ (the artist) has announced time after time of new projects and given estimated times of release. He shouldn't do that if he has no intentions to fulfill his commitments and his promises. Without no updated message that projects are delayed or canned, fans will ask what is happening with the project. Lets be brutishly honest here, JMJ's career has sunk quicker than the Titanic. His private life played a big part in that. Events unfolded which happens to us all and of which he could not control or change. But he has struggled to get back up. So when you add all this into the mix, it comes across that he does not understand what the fans expect of him as an artist. And yes, we do expect a lot from him because he is the artist, we are not. That applies to ALL artists, not just JMJ. But JMJ needs to get back into the studio. Back into gear. Back into music. Back into limelight as a forerunner and show these modern day artists how it is properly done.

There is a difference of making announcements which of the new album nothing is official until the release date. I appreciate that JM has mentioned on a number of times he is working on a new album but as saying these are promises and commitments cannot be that he is tied down to them for anyone. He spoke of it but not made a certain guarantee declaration. As for your opinion, JMJ's career has sunk quicker than the Titanic, it is only your opinion as I take it as a fan (?). Why should we expect anything from him - he is free to do what he wants as an artist and it is up to the fan/s to decide solely to either be his fan or not. He has nothing to prove as he has made his career a great achievement and does not solely go around making music. His contribution is vast beyond expectations as an artist. He says he is working on various projects but that does not necessary mean it is all official and sooner rather than later will see the light of day. There is no struggle with his career, imho. Let him choose the right path and not be directed by certain views. Having said that, I await for the new album patiently and all what he does because he does not stand alone just for making music. He wants to contribute greatly in other areas.

Well, then it is your unsure opinion. Comparing JMs career at this time to the Titanic and what happened to it, is quite a negative attitude.

I don't need to look around. I am well aware of the situation - 300k likes on his Facebook page - over 14,000 followers on his Twitter page. This is just a number but not as low if he was struggling as an artist. (Maybe of interest he was popular at IMS in Ibiza, another example.) As for the tours, some fans still want him to continue to tour.

dlaivison - Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:48 pm

Hi people,

I know that I don't contribute so much to this forum. But I really follows Jean Michel Jarre career a long time.
So in my opinion the new album is delayed because like Kanta said Jarre is perfeccionist and also a man ahead of our time.

If we compare the career of Jarre in 80 years was very remarkable. At this time synthesizers were too expensive and nobody could buy one. Nowadays everybody can use VSTI's with incredible worked sounds using the more sofisticated algorithms.

Jarre is always pursuiting in his career a way to break all the paradigms. So a new album can not repeat "Teo & Tea" , it should be remarkable too. The same mistake can not be repeated.

In order to do that you need to deeply study. His music is not only memorable because of sound effects but mainly because his music is unique , universal and has soul.

I think is quite possible Jarre is looking to innovate in this way creating something new and unique like he always did in the past. But we were used too see this more in the past even because technology was very limited for all of us.

So how to innovate nowadays ? Jarre tried this last time with the album AERO, using 5.1 recording .. and he did it well.

Create new thing to impact people is not so easy. But I believe like he said .. nowadays the MP3 make things really worse. The sound quality is not the same and the main thing " the user experience" is not the same.

There are several researches in this field how to create a "3D sound engineering", not using 5 speakers or 7, but using Sound Engineering.

If you have 2 ears and you can have a real 3d experience , why not to create these 3d experience even using 2 speakers ? The binaural sounds can create a 3d experience .. and I believe in future something similar we will have even using 2 speakers.

So I still believe Jean Michel Jarre is doing as much as he can do something unique and remarkable for his fans. Not only for us, but because he always was a man ahead of his time ;)

Finaero - Fri Jun 14, 2013 2:54 pm

I remember when people were practically begging for him to bring back Equinoxe 5 to his live set-list, and when he finally did (years after saying how the track belonged to the past), it didn't take long for them to change their mind to "wow I've grown tired of hearing these same tracks over and over again, he should [do this] and [do that]".

I'd still rather see some past releases (or even unreleased material) seeing the light of the day again. In fact, the last time when something really happened in that regard was when that Australian company planned to release DVDs for Concerts in China and RDV Houston - succeeding in the former for a few days (I really cherish my copy of it, even though it's more or less just a tad bit better than those fan-made VHS->DVD conversions - but still better). And this was in 2008, 8 years after the release of the Moscow DVD.

When the album finally comes out, I'll definitely check it out. But the whole "waiting game" aspect of possible JMJ releases is something that bugs me as well.

Kanta - Fri Jun 14, 2013 9:33 pm

Pat Gleeson - Sat Jun 15, 2013 9:06 am

It's always been this way with JMJ - there are two major differences nowadays:
1. The gaps between official albums are now approaching 7 years
2. The internet - people before then often only heard about a new album when it hit store shelves.

We live in an era of instant news. Somebody says something and the whole world knows about it there and then. IMO JMJ doesn't have a record label to release whatever he has prepared, and any material in the vaults is tied up in so much red tape, it will take years to unravel.
That's why Essentials & Rarities has so much filler in the rarities disc (LGB e.g) - JMJ didn't want whoever took over Dreyfus (BMG) to have more material that he felt comfortable with.
I feared the worst when E&R was released actually - I couldn't see a new release soon after yet another compilation, and so it turned out ...

It's not just the album, he was supposed to release a book last year and it didn't occur.
I feel like Jean Michel's fight for author rights which has come a long way will start with his own music, and otherwise it would be kinda meaningless

Nouvel album

Le nouvel album de Rone est l'tape prliminaire et s'ajoute un carnet de commandes bien garni - musiques de films et autres collaborations. Il ne veut pas le dire tout haut, mais un projet commun avec le clbrissime Jean Michel Jarre est en voie de se concrtiser. Et l'on ne compte pas son travail rcent auprs du groupe amricain The National.

Quote:
new Album

Rone's new album is at the preliminary stage and added to a backlog of well stocked - film music and other collaborations. He does not want to say it out loud, but a joint project with the famous Jean Michel Jarre is being realized. And it does not count his recent work with the American group The National.

GlennFolkvord - Sat Aug 10, 2013 8:26 pm

Has Jarre's career sunk? He was touring all over Europe for several consequtive years. That's not sinking. He played in large arenas, not in small backwater clubs or at obscure 80s revival festivals. That would be sinking.

Jarre likes to do unusual things, so maybe after T&T he focused on milking the tours in stead of releasing several new albums and do small tours with each of them. He could just be spreading his projects out and even though he has albums more or less finished, he may think it is smart to release an album when his diary is clean(er).

Jarre has no problem getting his records/music out to the public. He sold 80 million albums, one of the biggest selling artists of all times. His faithful fans would ensure healthy sales even if they dont reach 5 million anymore (music sales has declines everywhere). He IS with AeroProd now, so the only thing he needs is distribution, which is not the same as a "record contract". Distribution is not as risky as a record deal, so it's not as if some big company dont want to sell his records (they sign thousands of acts that sell much less than JMJ).

I think JMJ is too eager to shut up about his work, and wants to signalize he has not retired, and is just waiting for the (for him) right moment.

Last spring, while promoting Technologies' product in Moscow, Jarre said he need to fall in love to write albums...or something like this.
Geomtery of Love was born when he was together with Adjani, Teo & Tea has been "inspired" by Anne Parillaud, then.
I'm curiously waiting for what the future brings! :)

Black Bird - Sun Aug 11, 2013 6:35 pm

He told this a few times. :nod: Some artists need this status to be creative. Some need to be sad. Some need strong feelings in the nature, some need drugs, and some need other "influences" and inspirations.
I'm sure he has a girlfriend. (A woman which is unknown, with a "normal" profession) :)

I agree that a significant and positive change in your life always re-ignites your creativity and advances it to new heights.

Iv'e always thought that Jarre's best work started and continued throughout his happy times with Rampling from Oxygene to WFC. ( A tired old opinion - I know! )

With some artists, masterpieces come early on in their career and as we age and are shaped by life's experiences, our output is effected accordingly.

But I will always greatly admire Jarre for the huge body of creative genius he has already given us regardless of what comes next........

the re-issue of studio albums indicates a pre-promotion of the music of JMJ in preparation for a launch of a new studio album... this kind of thing happened for Chronologie with the 1992 remasters and also in 1996 if I remember rightly, for Oxygene 7-13

I personally am fed up with all these re-releases, re-issues and remastered versions of existing albums. As I understand these are not adding much to the originals. I don't need them. The albums I have are fine and are how they came out at the time and were meant to be. No need for changing them.
I also can't handle another compilation or box. And unless the tracks are really unreleased and not already in possession of every fan, I also can do without another Rarities album.

Just come with a new album and if it takes long, so be it. He has deserved the right to take as long as he wants. But all this re-issueing is just a way to have fans spend more money on stuff they don't need. It is mainly the old record companies that do this, but JMJ has also approved a lot himself.

Robi - Tue Sep 17, 2013 8:19 am

All this very things happenning with Mike Oldfield anyway.

Five Miles Out and Crises just came out as reissues and he is making the brand new album.

I personally don't mind buying the reissues, at all, I'm just looking forward to have the new materials from both musicians.

Jon - Tue Sep 17, 2013 9:52 pm

I nice big boxset of his albums, possibly 'special editions' or an extra album of previously unreleased mixes or studios out-takes/rarities would be most welcomed. But I sense what BMG have in store are original releases.

Regarding the proposed new studio album, its a long time coming, so lets hope it is worth the wait and that Jean Michel has found his mojo. Something new yet old fashioned would be epic.

Don't even get me started on those remasters and all subsequental released album mastering... I went out of my way to purchase all original CD's after buying a bunch, and went even further out of my way to get the vinyl of Oxygene 7-13 and recorded that one to my PC. Million times better!

These re-releases have nothing to do with the upcoming album, Oldfield has been rereleasing his albums since 2009 the year after he got all the rights back from Virgin after 35 years. He has been remixing the albums (Incantations only the demos since mastertapes are apparently to far degraded or lost, and Platinum/QE2 which were lazily only remastered) to 5.1 surround. Let me assure you that those 5.1 remixes are totally worth the repurchase of those albums: Hergest Ridge finally has something to offer besides boredom, Ommadawn sound very fresh, Five Miles Out goes all over the place and Crises is pure heaven in surroundsound! Still haven't bought the 5.1 mix of Tubular Bells though...

He has stated that he is infact working on something new, and I believe in one interview we did get a short sample of unheard music of Jarre. But other than that we have no idea, he's probably making music and not satisfied with the results waiting for the right mindset.
I just want a rarities collection that actually contains actual rare stuff (and without the shitty remastering), not stuff that we heard a million times before on compilations, incidently, also called Rarities 20 years earlier.

"In the sixth edition of its annual musical showcase "sound in Munich" presented Sony Music his main topics of the upcoming season. During his welcoming speech CEO drew Philip Ginthr a positive assessment of the fiscal year: "We have set ourselves the right goals, and we will hold on to it . Sony Music makes more revenue in the current fiscal year than the previous year and gaining market share in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. " as the cornerstone of the success he called "healthy repertoire care and talent." It is crucial, "the best newcomer and the main stars to have the label family," the Sony boss. example of this philosophy stood artists such as Adoro, Amigos, Judith Holofernes, Hansi Hinterseer and Jean Michel Jarre, the next in the months will be releasing new albums. Even in the digital market, the Munich-Major had a very positive development, "Sony Music boosts its digital revenues faster than market growth, our revenues were up in the current year in GSA space at about 25 percent, of the total market at 8. 6 percent, "Ginthr said. marketing boss Andre Mhlhausen agreed in the optimistic canon and recommended to guests from the commercial segment: "Invest more in all distribution channels - we also do this - you can rely on, because until Christmas we will post a further 20 albums with top ten potential. " In the sixth edition of "sound in Munich" welcomed Sony Music on 17 October, around 900 trade, media and business partner in the Munich Rein studios. Live on stage were Gunslinger, La Brass Banda, Tom Odell, Mikky Ekko, Ina Mller, Jan Smit, Exclusive, Tyler Ward and Tim Bendzko to."

Sony Music, Jean Michel Jarre under contract




For sound in Munich, he was one of the guest stars. Although joined Jean Michel Jarre not with music, but in an interview with Willy Ehmann and Ralf Schalk he willingly gave information about himself and his plans.

He already stood from 1996 to 2001, on Sony Music label Epic under contract, and after the album flopped "Metamorphoses" (2000) parted ways the French pioneer of electronic music and the record company. But more than ten years later want to try another again. This gave Willy Ehmann and Ralf According to Schalk known in Munich, who were talking on stage with the artist. Sony Music Germany has taken Jarre under contract and will in the coming years, his entire catalog since the multi-million seller Oxygne publish again (1976), a new album is planned for 2014.

"I'm starting all over again from scratch," Jarre said, "with a new team and new ideas." And he emphasized that he was proud that he is now the contract with Sony Music Entertainment Germany had signed. The planned new album means to him "a renaissance, a rebirth as an artist." It would "include 40 years of electronic music and recapitulate." Of his interlocutors presented almost as an icon of the genre, the son of French film music composer Maurice Jarre referred modestly to the German-French electronics tradition with Karlheinz Stockhausen on one side and Pierre Schaeffer, of the Paris Groupe de Recherches Musicales on the other parent page. "The electronic music comes from France and Germany," he said, so he was glad that he was now landed in Germany at Sony Music.
On this occasion he took up the cudgels for the majors. "With the advent of the internet we thought artists long, we do not need any more majors," he said. But which is not so, you could be lucky if you have a major with all its strengths knew at his side. Therefore, he also hope that he also in Germany a live major event like once in China or the Pyramids of Giza on the legs will soon be able to provide. "I would like to do in the Ruhr. Because to me it seems like on a connection to the place and the architectural features."

Creators of the World Summit to 4 and 5 Elected in June 2013, CISAC General Assembly Jean Michel Jarre its new president and chief lobbyist so to speak, the author of the world. In an interview with Music Week Jarre said afterwards that he was "not pessimistic" about the future concerns. "Boundaries were for artists has always been of particular interest, they have rubbed it and the social developments reflected.'s Why I firmly believe that many things will change in the music industry."

Instead of complaining, the entire music industry should focus on identifying and taking advantage of new circumstances. "The internet finally offers fantastic opportunities to create music, to make known and promote. Here I see the tasks of the new music economy. Artist but also need to get up and its position as a link between the public and, as in centuries past, the economic claim. "

If he could remember a highlight from his decades-long career, Jean Michel Jarre was asked to sound in Munich. Not really, he said. For the life of an artist is always going about to achieve creative, and this he must always look forward. "The real highlight is the future for me."

As an exclusive signing Willy Ehmann was also the pioneer Jean Michel Jarre Electric on Epic welcome. The 65-year-old artist who has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, announced a new work for 2014. In addition, Sony Music will re-evaluate the entire back catalog of Jean Michel Jarre. According to Munich at the sound wizard recalled his beginnings: the mid-seventies rejected most of his label debut album, "Oxygne" from. Meanwhile, the album sold over twelve million copies.

There will be two albums The two albums will be be both on physical and digital medias. These are facts I checked yesterday with Edith Napias (whose involvement with Jarre is the releases), but you should also credit me if you use the information on your website. Nethertheless I couldn't get any idea of the release dates, we are too far from the issue right now

I'm not a friend of forced Albums. That will not be good, I think. :no2:
He should only publish, if he has a good feeling to have created something good, and not because Sony wants to earn money. If he has any ideas, I think it's not bad. Bad would it be to produce crap.
I think T & T not soooo bad, its not his best, but I like it. :)

Jon - Thu Nov 28, 2013 11:54 am

But forced albums or releases is not entirely bad. It does not necessarily mean the forcing into the studio to create new music. Jarre must be sitting on top of tons of unreleased material. If a forced into sales means never released material, I'm happy.

However, Sony is not a company to p*ss around with. He gets on the wrong side of Sony they'll drag him into court quicker than you can say Moog Modular System.

Good that you mention this compression thing (nice article on the wikipedia). But it's not always the artist who is responsible for the compression or the fact that new releases (or re-releases) will be messed up with this over-compression. Mainly responsible are (imho) the studios and especially the big record companies.

Maybe it's zeitgeisty that today the music will be produced merely for smartphones and mp3-players instead of people like you and me (and many others, of course) who like a decent mixing/recording... there are many albums I rather like to listen from good old vinyl instead of the CD.

To an extend yes, in many cases this is the fact. But if I'm going by the video of Jarre with the other guy that was released just before Singles and Rarities, Jarre had always had his say in what does and doesn't go through. The entire video he was basically him praising the guy for what kind of god he is at (re)mastering and that the job he did on the S&R release and his previous couple of albums was absolutely outstanding.

The Dryfus/Sony age I'm still confused about what exactly happend there so I'll skip those releases. But anything AERO related is completely on him and him alone, it's his own company he should oversee that kind of stuff when releasing his music...

millau - Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:28 am

I think Jarre is due for retirement. If he ever will release a new album, I think it will also be his last. Hopefully there is ever a new album. But I would not continue to hope. The man goes quietly to his 70th year. And if there is ever a new album will ever appear, you can be sure that it is his last.

PS. I do not even think there's ever a new album will appear

Robi - Wed Jan 01, 2014 12:37 pm

Only time will tell...you may easily be wrong anyway.
In my opinion.

shadow - Wed Jan 01, 2014 5:35 pm

I hope not, but if he does he should imo release atleast one new album consisting of either brand new composed music or music never released for whatever reason. We know there was an album made between Sessions2K and Geometry of Love that was never released, or maybe a new compilation with actual rarities. I still want my studio version of The Sun...
moogyfoogy - Thu Jan 02, 2014 12:59 pm

Ok, its 2014 now. Time for an update? The album(s) must be long finished by now as Sony would not have signed a contract with Jarre without hearing new material. Ok, the back catalogue was acquired with the Dreyfus acquisition, but an annoiuncement must be imminent.

I believe he will produce a new Album, but now I also believe, this will be his last.
The indicia: He now has so many other interests, and he told about the planed concert at Perth. "This will be my legacy." I hope not his death as a man, but maybe as a musician. :(
This will be sad, but its his live. He should do what he like.

Fairlight spanish site :

What we can tell so far:

Josmar is odd for a week in Los Angeles in the study Joaqun Garrafn have in that town working on the new album does. Although we do not know for sure, it is almost certain they are doing the finishing touches and mixing the album. The disk you are working is to collaborations. The intention is that the disc is double (the collaborations and staff Josmar), but it is not known whether it will be so. When he is tucking the cane Josmar (night and day, literally) is the Collaborative.
Today Josmar is still in Los Angeles and, apparently, are the Jug and he piecework as this weekend has to go back to Europe for the Cannes this little joke.
We expect that, upon his return to Europe, we can tell you more news ...

According to Danielle Feuillerat, after 'Metamorphoses' Sony decided not to exercise their option to release the two JMJ albums left under their contract with JMJ / Dreyfus.
Dreyfus were not inclined to release 'Experimental 2001' themselves - possibly due to the perceived failure of 'Sessions 2000', and Dreyfus certainly did not want to release two albums that they considered 'sub-par' simultaneously.
JMJ sent Dreyfus both albums as one package to fulfil his contract obligations ...

We have more things that have allowed us to tell about the new album. The album will consist of collaborations only and exclusively unreleased tracks and track names that are titles, not numberos, Oxygene style 1, 2, etc ... The album will be released this year preceded by a single of which do not allow us to say the approximate departure but in principle not have to wait long. See if we can have more things soon.

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 worked with The Corrs for example...

Robi - Tue Feb 25, 2014 6:29 pm

(I think it is enough to title this topic 'studio album 2014', only one album has chance this year, imho)


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.

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 Carpenter's style.

I don't think it would be a big problem.

They just need to put a credit on the album's liner notes, for example "David Lynch appears courtesy of ________ records". You can find these kinds of messages on many album covers.

So Experimental 2001 has never been released?

Maybe just as well, as most of Sessions 2000 is just huge chunks of melodies that are taken from libraries, like the trumpet playing in the second track.

Because I have several of the passages in one my own sample libraries. I don't remember which anymore, but the first time I heard it, I did a double take.

And: The very same trumpet passage (the one Jarre pretends to play in concert) was included as a ring tone on a cell phone in the mid 2000s. Might have been a Sony or a Nokia. I owned one.

Do wspłpracy nad krążkiem zaangażował Trenta Reznora oraz reżyserw-muzykw Davida Lyncha oraz Johna Carpentera. Jak przekonuje ostatni z wymienionych artystw, materiał jest elektroniczny i bardzo klimatyczny, w typie ścieżki dźwiękowej.

More touring initially. I start a new album in May, I have just written film score, with Ade Fenton, for an animated film called From Inside that we will finish off in April as soon as the US tour is over. I hope to finish my first novel some time next year. I also have a collaboration song to finish with Jean Michel Jarre and another autobiography to pick up from where the first edition stopped back in 97. A lot has happened since then. Then we have more touring throughout the rest of this year.

Writing for film and TV is something Im very keen to get into more, so its a very important first step for me. I also have a song Im working on with Jean Michel Jarre for an album he is putting together. As soon as the US tour is over, though, I start on the follow-up album to Splinter which I would like to have ready by spring of 2015.

If there is any truth to this, it would be nice if this came from the horses mouth. Jarre seems to be putting his globe trotting adventures first. That's all well and good in the long run, but give us something solid to look forward too and something truthful. Too many years have elapsed of the same stories of a new studio album to suddenly be dashed time and time again. When things like this happen it is understandable that some fans feel let down by the artist they support. Such a shame :(

Regarding DVD / BD releases - the concerts would definitely benefit from a DVD release. Why not
1. remix them for 5.1 DTS surround
2. have the complete setlist of the huge Cities In Concerts gigs
3. extras etc. etc.

The Concerts In China could also be released on Blu-Ray, as it was recorded on film - assuming the original reels can be located.
While they're at it, someone could ask CCTV China very nicely to locate any recordings they may have of the original Chinese TV broadcast(s) - what an extra that would be :D

Unfortunately JMJ doesn't give a damn, or doesn't deign to tell the fanbase why none of this is possible or desireable ...
Any news we get now is via fans like Kanta and fansites working their socks off to give us something in the absence of anything official - much appreciated BTW :D

:? Why do you hate him ???

Ok, maybe he will never produce a new Album, or only an Album with " help" of so many other musicians, means this will be not his own (?) ....Ok ! Maybe you are right.
For me it seams also he will go out of the Business . There are so much signs, that he has other main interests as producing Music, and he distances himself more and more from the fans.

I have similar experiences as a fan, but no reason to hate him. It's his life and if he sees other duties for themselves for the rest of his life it is his decision. Is a shame, but we have to respect. :(

OK, now it's for sure. In 2014, there is certainly no new album. I really think Jarre absolutely little effort will do to bring new music. My suspicions still go out to a complete stop. If Jarre new music will ever release, yet this will be only via a download. But hope not.

Of course, if the new album ever came out the first reaction would be "This sucks" :P With that in mind, even I would focus on stuff like CISAC instead (despite finding the whole thing really silly, but alas).

Still, if anything, I'm still hoping that one day they'll release PLD on DVD and while that would already be quite fine for me (provided that it'd have a max 5 price tag), it'd be even better if they could supply a 2 CD set of the full PLD concert along with it ;) But as 11 years of being a part of the community has shown me, that's not gonna happen.

Shame.

Jon - Thu Apr 10, 2014 10:44 am

It is plain to see that Jean Michel is focusing more of his time on other things. He would not be doing them if they were not important to him. He clearly wants to make a difference. That is a positive note. However, the negative note is that it is taking him away from what fans expect of him. You could say we are very much to blame for this. He's not a recluse or a hobbit, he must read fans posts from time to time, if not, be told of what fans expect from him. He must think a lot of pressure has been put upon his shoulders as more time passes by. Maybe he feels he cannot meet fans expectations. You have to be in the right mood and atmosphere to produce works on his level. He is not a light you can switch on and off. He has said in the past he needs something to motivate him to work in the studio. Again, maybe, he has tracks done but not to his liking and what he feels should be released. After such a long length of time he wants his work to be right and for fans to like. The let down that was T&T still must plague him into wanting a album that is right, different but in all essence JMJ. But then fans want classic Jarre. Classic Jarre was the 70s and 80s, a time long ago... 30/40 years ago. Maybe, again, he doesn't want to create that style anymore and move along with the times. If the next studio album is of Jarre working with people such as Newman, Clarke, Carpenter and Lynch, then this is not a album of classic Jarre and Jarre as we have known him from the past half-a-century, its something radical and a big leap from Jarre. And that brings us back to expectations from fans. If this is the approach Jarre is doing, personally, I think it may be wise for Jarre to release a track and get feedback from fans of this new approach before committing fully to a album of this type. Then he and we will get the answer to our question.

Just my two-penneth worth on the matter :D

synthmann - Thu Apr 10, 2014 10:51 am

wasn't the album already in the mastering/mixing stage sometime summer last year?? I don't exactly recall the rumour history but there must be recorded/composed material ready now for at least three albums... So I don't care if this were to be download only, but just put it out there!

That it is possibly delayed to coincide with a big concert... If that is really the case I find it nonsense. As if record sales will be seriously affected by a big concert. These concerts are not even shown on tv so no one but the fan community, who will buy an album anyway-anytime, will view the concert on whatever crappy streaming website or attend physically. Moreover, the big concerts have been rumours themselves for the past years so if you wait for that you can wait forever, too. You miss maybe one or two years worth of record sales just by waiting for a big concert that may or may not ever happen. Therefore the wait to coincide with a big concert is something I find hard to believe and, if true, all the more silly.

I suspect inspiration has just dried up and we're not ever getting a proper, individually composed and produced, studio album anymore. That would be a pity for the fans but perfectly understandable from the artist view. He's made plenty of great albums and for everyone there's a time for retirement from active composing. The only thing I'd wish is that we'd simply get some words from the master himself about what's going on. Something like he's been trying to compose several tracks over the years but wasn't happy with them and he threw them away or he feels like doing other things or he might still compose a new album but we shouldn't count on it or whatever. No fan or other prospective buyer will buy any possible future album or other release more or less, by giving the fans these kinds of possible insights now. What's the whole point of the information silence?

In the meantime, there's great new music out there from for example Todd Terje ('It's Album Time', which even features an 'Instruments used' list in the booklet for us synthheads :) ) and many other artists like Sebastien Tellier, Junior Boys etc.

and equinoxe is timeless and unsurpassable so we can always continue to listen to that

@Jon : I like your opinion, point of view!

Velodynamic - Thu Apr 10, 2014 7:00 pm

I know it's a long shot but my guess about the constantly postponed new album(s) is linked to his work at CISAC. He doesn't release any new album, physical or digital, before he has made clear that he will have a good or decent profit out of it. It's my guess. That's what his work at CISAC is all about both for himself and artists at any level. I mean if his musical motivation/creativity is totally lost it shouldn't have been the hardest thing for a man in his position to tell it exactly like it is to his dispairing fans.
Kanta - Fri Apr 11, 2014 10:12 am

It is an honor for JM to be President of CISAC, a new role which he values. Should be accepted if it makes him happy. I can understand the time taken up with this role may effect his responsibilities as a musician but the waiting will be worth it for the "penciling" in for the new studio album in 2015!

So many years have passed when i have looked at this forum for updates only to be constantly disappointed. JMJ collaborating with Gary Newman ( a has been from the 80's), a new ablum in 21xx (pun intended). Sadly now i believe the next release will be found in the bargain bucket at Lidl, if it indeed ever happens.

JMJ - playnig the same old set list year after year after year is tiresome and one I am loathe to lsten to. It is blatantly obvious during Oxygene 2 that you are key synching as nowhere is there a wrong note played.

JEAN MICHEL JARRE: NEW SONY RE-MASTERED ALBUM RELEASES

After half a decade of going it alone without being signed to a major record label, Jean Michel Jarre signed a new contract with Sony Music last year, ahead of his proposed new studio album release, which is currently pencilled in for an early 2015 release.

This will be his first new studio album release since 2007's 'TEO & TEA' on the Warner Music France label (not counting the re-release of 'OXYGENE' on the EMI label later that same year).

The new contract with Sony Music allows for the re-mastering and re-releasing of Jean Michel Jarre's entire back catalogue, and the first of these re-mastered releases should be available from April 25th 2014 in both digital and physical formats.

Jean Michel Jarre's Management have confirmed to JARRE UK, that the re-mastered releases are expected to be released over the coming months, and although some will have updated artwork, there will be no changes to the tracklisting from the original album releases, and no bonus tracks added.

The first wave of remastered releases appears to include 'OXYGENE', 'EQUINOXE', 'MAGNETIC FIELDS', 'THE CONCERTS IN CHINA', 'CITIES IN CONCERT: HOUSTON / LYON' and 'DESTINATION DOCKLANDS' at the time of writing.

Jean Michel Jarre's Management have also confirmed to JARRE UK that there are no current plans for any of Jean Michel Jarre's previously released videos and DVDs to be re-released on Blu-Ray, and this includes any previously unreleased footage. There are also no current plans for any major concerts to take place this year.

JARRE UK would like to thank Aero Productions for this information.

We can now confirm the rumors circulating the net: The new album again postponed, this time until January (third or fourth week) 2015 (in principle, of course, with Josmar never know).
The reasons for this umpteenth are strategic delay by Sony Music. Originally it was going to release a single before summer and then release the album in the last quarter of 2014. However, Sony Music, according to company statistics, have you found that when there is a sporting event in this case the World Cup , sales and media attention regarding new releases fall a lot, which consider that harm the global distribution of the disc, so have decided to delay this launch to January.

International Superstar Jean Michel Jarre Chooses SSL AWS 948 For New Project

The AWS 948 is so much more rewarding to work with than a controller

PARIS International Superstar Jean Michel Jarre recently added a Solid State Logic AWS 948 Hybrid Console/Controller to his private JMJ Studio facility to fulfill his need for high quality audio production. Over the years, Jarre has sold over 80 million recordings of his brand of electronic music, achieving record-breaking attendance at live shows (World Record No. 1 at 3.5 million in Moscow and No. 2 with 2.5 million in Paris), while producing a constant stream of projects featuring new creative directions. A long-time user of SSL equipment, Jarre sees the AWS 948 as a return to his analogue roots, with the added benefit of being able to control DAW workflow from the console.

Early on, I had a massive SSL G-Series console that eventually gave way to a controller, but I was never really happy with the controller direction, says Jarre. I decided to go back to the more noble way of recording and purchased the AWS 948. The console is a true analogue console with real, great sounding preamps and a platform where I can record and mix through analogue processing. I also get the best workflow for both analogue and DAW situations with the console. The AWS 948 is so much more rewarding to work with than a controller.

Jarre is in the process of creating a new, in his words, fairly ambitious double album project, and the AWS is front and center, supporting the creative effort. The AWS made a noticeable difference in sound quality from the controller I had been using with Pro Tools, states Jarre. Putting them side by side, the sound of the AWS was immediately warmer and crystal clear. I create many of my tracks with synthesizers going directly into the AWS and the sound quality was superior to that of the controller. I feel like I am sonically real with the AWS and that it helps me to achieve the sound I am looking for.

Beyond the new release project, Jarre has booked in several soundtrack projects and works with friends on their productions, who are also suitably impressed with the new setup. The console is going to be used on a lot of projects in the coming years, continues Jarre. The technician and sound engineer working with me full-time noticed that when anybody enters the studio and sees the AWS and the SSL name, they are immediately confident. But what they really like is the results and they are very impressed by how compact the desk is related to what you can do with it. This is a big plus for me because the AWS 948 is really a big, professional desk in a small form factor. In these days, when more and more people are working on home studio situations, I think the AWS 948 is an ideal tool.

Solid State Logic is the worlds leading manufacturer of analogue and digital audio consoles and provider of creative tools for music, broadcast, live and post production professionals. For more information about our award-winning products, please visit: www.solidstatelogic.com.

Boris Blank from "YELLO" (duo with Dieter Meier) said in this interview :

Quote:
Gibt es weitere Kooperationen?

Das neuste Projekt haben wir mit Jean-Michel Jarre. Der franzsische Elektronik-Pionier fragte uns fr eine Compilation an, auf der Artisten wie Massive Attack, Portishead, Moby, Laurie Anderson, Air, David Lynch versammelt sind. Alles grosse Stars, und da hat er Yello gebeten, auch ein oder zwei Tracks beizusteuern. Jarre ist gegenwrtig mit der Endabmischung der Platte beschftigt. Sie wird wohl demnchst rauskommen.

The latest project we have with Jean-Michel Jarre. The French pioneer of electronic asked us for a compilation on which artists like Massive Attack, Portishead, Moby, Laurie Anderson, Air, David Lynch are gathered. All big stars, and since he has Yello asked to contribute one or two tracks. Jarre is currently busy with the final mix of the plate. You will probably come out soon.

Today we can confirm a new partner in the disk Josmar. Apparently this contributor added a photo to Facebook in December 2013, but this was quickly withdrawn, so it went unnoticed. Pictured Josmar appeared in the study of this musician and corresponded to the first preliminary meeting between the musician and Josmar musical collaboration prior to itself, that is, that day nothing was recorded. The collaboration was recorded, however, throughout these months of 2014.'s Partner in question is none other than the renowned film composer Hans Zimmer.

Okay, until now I had thought that you had translated the Spanish lines to English via Google and it would have translated "Jean-Michel" or just "Jarre" as "Josmar"... but apparently that's the actual word they're using. ... anyone have a modern Spanish slang dictionary nearby?

I think all of those to the studio of whom he went are to include them on the Jarre album. And maybe some artists will collaborate on several tracks, like stated by Boris Blank from Yello.

International superstar Jean Michel Jarre select the SSL AWS 948 console for ambitious new project
International superstar Jean Michel Jarre has recently added a Solid State Logic AWS 948 in his private study (JMJ Studio) to meet production needs required for their next job.
User equipment attached to the SSL, Jarre has sold over 80 million copies and scores attendance records at their concerts, the composer now sees 948 AWS as a return to their analog roots.
"At first, I had a SSL G-Series that eventually gave way to a controller, console but I was never very happy with the result of the controller," said Jarre. "I decided to return to the noblest form of recording and bought the AWS 948. It's an analog console with great preamps and a platform where I can record and mix through analog processing. Also I have the best workflow for both situations, analog and DAW with this console. The AWS 948 is much more rewarding to work with a controller. "
Jarre is in the process of creating a new project, which he said, "is a rather ambitious double album format," and AWS is the protagonist. "The AWS has made a noticeable difference in sound quality compared to the driver who had been using Pro Tools," says Jarre. "The sound of the AWS was warm and clear. I think many of my songs with synthesizers go directly to the AWS because the sound quality is superior to that of the driver. The console helps me get the sound I'm looking for. "
Beyond the ambitious and anticipated new work, Jarre is involved in several projects, working with friends in their productions has also been impressed with the new equipment in the studio. "The console will be used in a lot of projects in the coming years," concludes Jarre.

80 million records sold now? It keeps increasing for every article. It was 35 million in 1989. I don't believe for a second that it's more than doubled during the 90s and 00s.

In a french magazine called "keyboards" from july 93 (dedicated to the release of JMJ Chronology) they say that more than 43 millions had been sold. That is 8 millions more in 4 years ! And at that time time he was already no more "genius". Certainly 50 millions is more right. Which is very good indeed !

Finaero - Sat Aug 09, 2014 7:45 pm

Didn't the old Jarre.net site mention that he had sold 56mil records by 2003?

I vaguely remember seeing that number mentioned on a number of sites back in the day, until Dreyfus made their shoddy The Essential 2004 album and mentioned "80 million records sold" in the press release, after which it was edited into Wikipedia et al.

Well, it's not particularly relevant these days, but you'd think that someone who has sold over 40 million records would be able to come up with proper official "Essentials & Rarities" releases that would actually include rare (and essential... and essentially rare, or rarely essential!) stuff. A lot of other bands seem to be making some/enough money out of such releases, but eh, I guess I should permanently give up on such material actually ever surfacing.

RemarkableRadio - Wed Aug 13, 2014 4:13 am

For now, a new album is Essential, although Rare.
Does that cover it for you?

Finaero - Wed Aug 13, 2014 9:23 am

Seems apt.

But yeah, I'm still not actually looking forward to any new albums (even though one would be nice), but there's tons of stuff from the past that could, nay, should be revisited.

Most likely he's always just busy with something else/new to focus on anything like that (which isn't a bad thing per se.......). Or maybe he's just not marketable enough for any rarities to please non-fans. C'est la vie. :P

I hope Jarre is not after a new Guiness book of records entry, because:

Portishead 11 years between Portishead and Third
The Verve 11 years between Urban Hymns and Forth
Van Halen 14 years between Van Halen III and A Different Kind Of Truth
Guns N' Roses 15 years between The Spaghetti Incident and Chinese Democracy
Kraftwerk 17 years between Electric Cafe and Tour de France
The Cars 23 years between Door To Door and Move Like This
The Who 24 years between It's Hard and Endless Wire

True, even though they didn't go entirely release-free in this time period.

And by golly, I think The Mix is still one of the finest examples in terms of compilation albums. The then-new versions of the tracks may or may not be better than the originals (IMO some like Die Roboter and It's More Fun To Compute are), but that's really the right way to make a "Best Of" record.

Neither John nor the server has heard a single note of the disk. The only people who have heard it have been, to our knowledge, the Josmar, Fiona and our source (which, by the way, I wanted to again thank you for your generosity and confidence and tenacity ignoring those that refute their information or even claimed that there was absolutely nothing recorded). As we said this person listening to this record has been a roller coaster since the first demos sbicas to a more than promising and exciting end result, but not free, and in such a long drive, some other qu tallow. But, if in his opinion, the disc will like, surprise and excite his followers.

Can't wait to buy the disc, put it in the stereo, turn up the volume loud and experience again the magic of hearing a new Jarre album for the first time. There are few things that compare to such moments. Still remember hearing the opening notes of Oxygene 7 for the first time and then the track really kicking in, shivers!

It's also nice to notice that most of the tracks are labeled 'instrumental', except Falling Down (Miami Vice) which is labeled as 'chant'.
Robi - Mon Aug 25, 2014 10:36 am

"when the album was supposed to be released in September this year, a single was planned to be out on June with a video clip to be recorded in April. Curiously enough the collaborator (collaborators in this case) these collaborators seems to be out of the project at the moment. I don't know if the track is going to be on the album with this collaborators or not.

There is a "new" track by Jean Michel Jarre on Youtube until the 30. August 2014.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qScxLcJ4GgE

I met Jean Michel today in Berlin at the IFA. I asked him, maybe he has published a song before the Album will be out. But it sounds a little "unready". I show him this track on my Iphone and he was astonished. He said to me, its not his song. He like the song very much too, but for him it was a violation about his brand.

I found it a bit sad that it is not his song. :mrgreen:

melo - Fri Sep 05, 2014 8:26 pm

This is very strange ... many people identified this music as a studio version of concert in Okinawa, The ViZitors (2001). Strange that Jarre has not identified it.

1) Not sure if it's a "studio" version, I think you can hear some of the audience sound at the very end.

2) It would still be nice to have that Vizitors studio album.

3) Maybe he doesn't remember that track because the concert was one of the worst playback-fests in his career. Or maybe it's because he considers it to be more of Tetsuya TK Komoro's work than his own.

4) Is it me or are those ostensible new album track names really Teo & Tea 2.0 like?

Except for the intro it kind of reminds of how Francis Rimbert use to compose music.

shadow - Fri Sep 12, 2014 5:44 pm

Still extremely saddend that that concert never got released physically. It's a really good concert and some sweet tunes which never got released like that in the end. There's the more calm rendition of 'Childeren of Space' on GoL and another one released as a single 'Je te flashe, je te love' I believe it was. What an awful single that was by the way...

Edit: Also god-damn Akropolis without the audience is amazing! :D
Edit 2: Is it me, or is the amounts of Vangelis vibe in Akropolis damn high? I swear if I didn't know better I would've said he composed and arranged it!

Also the 'Studio Version' of Overture is either cleaned up somewhat (or compressed) or it really is the studio version. The actual broadcast recording has quite a bit of crackling, almost as if it was recorded from a brand new and well cleaned vinyl record. This one has non of those problems. It doesn't suffer from much other than being uploaded onto YouTube.

In late of September there was another annual convention Jarrefans from Spain.
A video of congratulations from Jarre was displayed at the convention, and he promised "many surprises" for the month of October ...

My bet is that reveals Jarre's new album in the next Amsterdam Dance Party (16 Octuber)....

Wonderful for JMJ to take time to acknowledge the event and pass us his best.

I saw the video, he did not promise any surprises specifically for October...he.said he will come to us soon with surprises.

So that means anytime soon, which may or may not be in October!!

La Cage - Fri Oct 03, 2014 6:38 pm

There's a mistake in the Spanish subtitles on the video.

Jarre's voice:
"And I'm really with you with all my ART" (unless he omits the sound of "h" and wants to pronounce "heart").

Translation on the video:
"I'll be with with you with all my SUPPORT".

2013. oktber 29., London, United Kingdom krnykn
(29 October 2013, London)

"Id been thinking about Lou Reed after meeting Jean Michel Jarre last Saturday. He is a friend of Lou and Laurie Anderson. My heart goes out to Laurie whom I met briefly when Lou played with me at Rachel Fullers ATTIC JAM at Joes Pub in NYC. Lou seemed to have fun that night, and it was wonderful and easy for me to perform with this clear-sighted musician who I had expected to be so difficult."

Nobody said anything, but Rimbert had sold the house and moved in Croissy somewhere else.
I know he set up new project with other artists, including Rondat, "Mephisto".

Naturally we asked Dominique also whether he now only pursue their own projects, or even collaborate with Jarre. Further cooperation, he is apparently not averse, but Jarre currently working on his new album, and if this is done, you'll see. The work on the album would last very long, as Jarre here with a lot of people working together and a lot of conversations and telephone calls were made??. In fact, already some time ago announced that Jarre would produce an album together with a number of French electro-musicians. Accordingly, these are apparently not a remix album, but actually is a studio album of new music produced Jarre in collaboration with other artists. Dominique estimated that up to completion still could pass three or four months and then it might be published in March just to match the planned concert in Perth.

7 Nov 2012:
David Muoz, from Fairlight Jarre (Spain), was in Alcal and take some words with Jean Michel Jarre:

I think he dont meant not to bring a song to end. I'm sure he meant that it is difficult to switch off the creativity at some point as it flows and flows. I know that too. :nod: One thinking about every idea after, will always find something new, possibly better and thinks that it could still be better. As a perfectionist you will always continue to seek the addiction of optimizations. This is very difficult to find an end.

You know, just perfection. I just had a very interesting conversation actually, with Jean Michel Jarre, and a couple of other friends just being at my studio.  And Jean-Michel Jarre was explaining, really where electronic music came from, and he said, and I think its very true, that in Europe, we were so influenced by American music, I mean The Rolling Stones took their name from a Muddy Waters song.  So the blues was everywhere.  And we continental Europeans wanted to find our language in a funny way, so most of the electronic music is, theres much more classical harmony on your [music].  And I think that is just something that stuck.  You know, stuck to my DNA.  When I was 13, when I was 14, when I was in England, yeah all I wanted to do was go and see The Who, go and see The Stones.  I saw David Bowie do Ziggy Stardust.

I guess he will continue making music even without making albums, basically because music piracy and streaming music is progressively killing the idea of making albums

Make a good album and people will still care. The idea of an album isn't dead, Daft Punk proved that with RAM. However the way it's being distributed as one package is pretty much dead unless the album is stellar. And I doubt Jarre can create a brand new album that will be interesting throughout the entire thing.

J'ai contact aussi Edith Napias en MP sur Facebook , elle m'a dit que Jean-Michel Jarre doit rendre le master de son album (celui solo je suppose) avant le 10 janvier 2015.

I also contacted Edith Napias PM on Facebook, she told me that Jean-Michel Jarre has to make the master of his album (the solo I guess) before 10 January 2015.

Well maybe it's just me misunderstanding the choise of words.
In an aspect were JMJ completely left his discography after the GOL album, or maybe at some degree after the Teo & Tea album
and after doing a lot of things related to his earlier tracks and albums it is in fact a kind of "return back" for him to continue his dicography with brand new albums (hopefully composed by JMJ himself).
It's just a matter of interpretation of words I guess. 8)

Who is this woman Edith? Who knows if that's true? There are so many people who think they know something, and know in reality nothing. :wink:

With today's social medias any artist which is good at what he/she does should get their message through one way or the other without "the big guy's" promotion.
Besides how many people in the world with the slightest interest in electronic music today doesn't know who Jean Michel Jarre are?

Or contract signed for remasters only?

I agree ! And I hope it is. It is known that record companies try to squeeze their artists like lemons. Especially Sony has a bad reputation

Sony Music Entertainment is not in Berlin. They are in Mnchen. In Berlin Sony manages the classical music range......maybe JMJ is classic now !? :mrgreen:

Robi - Tue Dec 23, 2014 11:28 am

Can you imagine, guys, that albums release as digital download first on iTunes and some time later they get physical release?
Many bands prefer this way in recent years, just as an example, Duran Duran.

Finaero - Tue Dec 23, 2014 1:54 pm

At this point just about every other artist on the planet is releasing new AND old stuff far better than JMJ is ... or ever has, now that I think about it.

Come to think of it, Kraftwerk isn't actually doing much better on that front either at the moment. Of course, Der Katalog (2009) was beautifully and properly remastered and their album concert tours (2012 onwards) are just a delight for everyone involved (tho' JMJ did it first with Oxygene ;) ). Even if technically only one original member of the band is left, but then again, it's the same situation with other old bands from the era like Deep Purple and whatnot.

But I've never ever understood why JMJ and/or his record companies are so reluctant to actually dish out proper releases these days, and if it's up to JMJ and his "perfectionism", well, that's just a damn shame.

shadow - Tue Dec 23, 2014 8:33 pm

Well if the remasters have proven one thing, than it's that his 'perfectionism' is worthless...

You hear some right horror stories about Sony and how they treat artists who try and leave their contracts. Look at some artists who got sued by Sony for terminating their contracts early. If Jarre was assigned to a contract and finished it, now doubtly he would have been sued by Sony unless they terminated it. That depends on the story of Sony and Jarre seperating of course.

Velodynamic - Sun Jan 04, 2015 2:35 pm

I never knew that Jean Michel Jarre is owned by Sony? Is he really??
As an ordinary arts consumer I don't care if he releases his music through Dreyfus, Warners, Sony, EMI, Virgins, Laurel & Hardy...
All I care about is that he is well and actually is working on a new album or albums and which in some fashion or the other is going to be released before the man himself is dead.

no a single music magazine which would mention his new album as seen on the horizon.
Consequence of Sound interestingly also left him from their "most antivipated albums of 2015. but, e.g., giorgio moroder is mentioned. And a plenty of noname acts.....or noname only for me.....

this may or may not also shows how minor jmj has got.

the music world still no aware of his comeback?

Well thanks Robi for the info even if it doesn't makes the slightest sense to me.
"It's not ok remastering with a bunch of loudness although it was jmj's choice and the correct compromising to do because the tracks are going to be played in playlists with other all sorts of music and "some people" likes it that way and after all fans has always got a choice as the older remasters are still available."

yes, I do not think the shootings will affect work within the studio, but if an album was due to be released in the next week or two, I think the events could delay the promotion and launch of that album

Off topic: Kanta, the whole thing was a false flag operation in order to move a specific group of people (Europeans) in a certain direction, a direction favourable to those who need that to occur. The media is utilized as a tool of programming - the mental aspect of a person, ie the propagation of the story that you are fed to believe and then reinforce. The reality is totally different. The concept of terrorists is utilized because it is a concept that can be perpetuated indefinitely.

Now, don't get me wrong - I sure as hell don't trust entities like the American government or such - but these sort of tragedies do take place when deranged individuals takes their orders or inspiration from hateful organizations (and/or people) instead of being a part of a conspiracy.

But alas, I'm glad Jarre took a stance on the freedom of speech issue - befitting his status as the head honcho of CISAC and someone who's been involved with the UN for over two decades now. :)

Sounds like some ordinary background music to some wildlife documentary, nothing to get excited about IN my opinion :lol: And the fact that Jarre's name is attached to it doesn't mean anything to me, I'm not 12 years old anymore :wink:

But there's a whole album coming, I know, but this little snippet doesn't do anything for me :D

I'm with you, I'm not liking it at all, but at least there's a glimpse of possible new material. What I'm afraid of that with all these collaborations, the album will be a collection of random songs rather than a more coherent unity.

Jean-Michel Jarre​: an album on the horizon after eight years of absence

Jean-Michel Jarre, announced to his fans the upcoming release of an album. And a first extract made with M83 is available.

The last album of Jean-Michel Jarre was the trippy To & Ta, released by Warner Music France in 2007. Since then, except for a few appearances at public events and compilations, the French composer had not released an album.

Only clue revealed its collaboration with M83 for at least one track of this next album, available in excerpt: "Glory" is the soundtrack of Emic, the next film under Google Play and Interstellar which will celebrate the life and experience humans on Earth. It looks very very good stuff.

Source: http://www.traxmag.fr/jea...album-huit-ans/

There was a problem with the sound in the first link, fixed now : http://youtu.be/_30SH9J038Q
Finaero - Wed Mar 18, 2015 7:35 pm

Hey, nice stuff! With collaborative tracks it's always somewhat hard to figure out how much the artists have really contributed to it, and I haven't listened to M83 at all so I don't know what kind of a "signature sound" they'd have anyway.

But hey, nice for Jarre to get his music featured in a rather notable project (something related to Google Play instead of, like, The Crypto-Zoo-Jazz Artists of The 9th Arrondisement).

(And on a darker note, yes, my premonitions from years past were on the mark. Not that you should automatically like the new stuff from him or anything, but still, no surprises here)

(Oh and, Michael, very off-topic but if you ever want to feature my music in Radio Equinoxe, feel free to do so ;] )

synthmann - Wed Mar 18, 2015 11:46 pm

I don't like it either. Too much seemingly random and out of rythm annoying drum sounds as if a kid without musical sense is just slamming them and these 'soccer anthem' male choirs are so lasts year's run of the mill pop tune. Well i do have high hopes for the track with Armin van Buuren. Two very talented melodic electronic composers together. And of course for the real Jarre-only solo studio album that's hopefully also coming soon. That's the one I'm most eagerly awaiting. Hopefully a successor to equinoxe or somethjng of similar style and quality as anything pre-teo&tea. I liked everything before including metamorphosis and geometry of love in which you still clearly hear Jarre melodies and sound/melodic landscape sculpting.
docklands88 - Thu Mar 19, 2015 3:56 am

I may be going crazy but to me this almost sounds like a continuation of metamorphosis in my opinion, it shares the same DNA which is something I've just picked up on after listening to metamorphosis and this new work. Particularly Miss Moon & Give Me A Sign.
Elf - Thu Mar 19, 2015 7:35 am

The new track with M83 is pure M83. If you know of M83 (I quite like him) and you've heard his music before, you would automatically think this was a new solo track from him.

Truth be told, I don't hear anything here that reminds me of Jarre. It's just an average M83 track, nice to listen to.

I'm mostly excited what Ryksopp and Jarre did together. Hope that will be on the album as well.

Jon - Thu Mar 19, 2015 12:21 pm


Rubberlips - Thu Mar 19, 2015 2:09 pm

Nope. Doesn't do anything for me.

I must admit I'm surprised. Jarre knows what his established fan base think of Teo and Tea and he's admitted it was a bit of a mistake himself. Of course, as an artist he's free to do as he pleases, but to continue to plough the same "Teo & Tea" furrow?

Surely not?

It might work in a large public arena, greeting Olympic athletes who are waving flags around, but that's about the only context I can think this would work.

I really hope that the release of the music is simply to support the film release and is not representative of a lead single used to promote a record.

I feel the fear.

a cut version (edited) so it takes off the real harmony of the song! and for surprise of everybody... this track has more from Jarre than from M83.... here is how Jarre Masters everything about music... he composed everyone of the tracks thinking about the collaborators...... to make an even better fusion

Come to think of it, the "collaboration" album might just turn out to be another Odyssey Through O2 (which is currently considered a part of the JMJ discography canon whereas Images isn't).

Perhaps accompanied by another "concert" where the Eiffel Tower is nearly set on fire.

I agree, the old ones resembled as a classical music concept, which we like. :)
Perhaps I was too strict? "Glory" is film music based on another basis, namely add sound to a concept movie. Maybe it is unfavorable to select this song for a preview ?

Let's see what about the other songs. !?

It's Jarre name on Teo & Tea also, and I don't like that album at all. Despite his name is on it.

Yep, I say that 2 mins of "song" (which instead is excerpt) isn't enough for a judgement. You haven't even heared the other tracks with orther collaborators! OK, you dislike this "song", though, it seems (maybe it's not about you...) that some "feel the fear". :lol:

If I'm being brutally honest, for the first track off the album after a 8 year break, you would expect something a bit more... you know, something with a certain wow factor considering who it is. I was left "meh" over it and even though the track is 4.01 in length and we have already heard 2 minutes, I doubt the remaining 2.01 will be blowing the socks off many.

You only have to hear 30 seconds of a track to know if it captures your attention AND imagination. This failed for me.

This article is about the IRCAM, where former le tribe Frederick Rousseau, works since 2008. Jarre praises the IRCAM, and soon after there is this little stretch.

Pioneer of electro made in France, it also works on his new album with (among others) use the Trax software, the other great success of IRCAM, which changes the real-time voice of breathtaking way.

Some of them here living in this bubble! And they don't accept anything out of that! I don't like everything what Jarre does but my mind is more wide and don't judge immediately. I will listen first carefully. Not judging 2 minutes or even 46 second of music. Ok, if you don't like it since the beginning, I understand. But how you can judge a whole album only from a short part of a song that will be including on the new album. Poor people, go back in your cave and listen 24h/24h to Oxygene or Equinoxe. :wink:

Robi, you are acting as if you composed the track(s) and who has taken offence to others views on it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion so there really is no need to shoot people down for having an opinion which differs from yours.

Lets not forgot the countless posts from you complaining of no news from Jarre, his team, management, release date of new material, album news, album delays, and with a major bulk of that in this very thread... the list could go on. If anyone has done the most complaining it is you. So please give others a break considering what we have had to tolerate over the past years from your complaints.

Anyway.

Some of them here living in this bubble! And they don't accept anything out of that! I don't like everything what Jarre does but my mind is more wide and don't judge immediately. I will listen first carefully. Not judging 2 minutes or even 46 second of music. Ok, if you don't like it since the beginning, I understand.

"Who has expected an Oxygene / or Zoolook / or Chronologie style album in 2015?"

WE don't expect anything. WE hope (for Jarre's own sake) that it's a damn good quality album. And WE don't care in which style that is.. And I'm happy to repeat that for those (Christophe/Robi) who really seem to have a VERY hard time understanding this:

"And WE don't care in which style that is". Got it now?? No?? Well, I didn't this so..

Christophe, as always you sound like a child with a very very low .. :roll:

"But how you can judge a whole album only from a short part of a song that will be including on the new album. Poor people, go back in your cave and listen 24h/24h to Oxygene or Equinoxe. :wink: "

Again I will ask, WHO in here has made an judgement of the whole album?? I haven't heard it yet.. Anyone else heard it?

Poor poor Christophe, if only YOU would come out of YOUR cave, then maybe, just maybe, you would evolve and possibly grow a .... (And I'm not talking about a beard)

Robi & Christophe: This forum is NOT a kindergarden, this is a forum for grown ups, and if you don't like peoples opinions on stuff, then go to your parents about it..

Black Bird - Wed Mar 25, 2015 10:08 pm

Thats right :)

This is not the expected studio album, but a small part of the cooperation with one of the other artists.

He will polarize and stimulate discussion. The idea of temporary cooperation of similar products are also used in other industries with success. (For Example : I go to the nail designer, I get a good discount voucher for a special hairdresser not far away, there are coupons for the nail designer and manufacturer of cosmetics distributed) Mutual advertising. That's not bad. I personally havn`t known about a group called M83 before. I have now looked at several videos on Youtube of them. I know them now, but sorry, I do not like anything. ( It could be otherwise) Many people under 35 do not know about JMJ. He has his prominent time just now long behind him. For him a good way for him to become well known among fans of other groups and artists.
Perhaps no one will find all tracks of the album good . He will probably not expect.
The track does not sound like JMJ, but I think that will not be wanted. On the one hand, there is a cheat pack for JMJ fans. Chronic critics will say he alone can compose no more. But why should M83 contribute to a song if it sounds by JMJ? That's probably it will be the same with the other tracks. Hans Zimmer will sound like Hans Zimmer and Tangerine Dream like Tangerine Dream (unfortunately the last piece of Edgar Froese), etc. etc. Probably!

Perhaps it would have been better if the album will be out under the heading: "JMJ presents his favorite artists" , and nothing told about collaboration.???

I will judge about the album when I heard everything, but I can judge about a single track like this before. Its not my music, but about the album probably... I will like some tracks, and some I don`t. It's all a matter of personal taste.
It's great everyone can pick out and buy his own raisins :mrgreen: Not the unwanted

True, but a track featuring Natasha Atlas still sounds like Jarre, just like a track featuring Sharon Corr.

Post subject: So long good times?
After promises year on year, there should be something we can remember from Jean - Michel Jarre (note he has put the - back (surely this means something great?)) I am sad to say that as a fan since 86, this will be my last venture unless it provides something I can once again jump around my living room to. Of course everyone is welcome to their own opinion and should not be slagged off (as there are fans doing so here) for voicing their opinion. Just because JMJ releases a new album does not mean we should not all worship the ground he walks on. I think we are all in agreement we are looking for something creative, artistic, innovative and in keeping with the style he has (lost or) been famous for in the past. For me, this snippet does not make me go (wooooooo, wow, amazing, best thing ever,) and pre order a copy. Berate me off if you like for voicing my opinion (and I do not have Oxygene or Equinoxe on repeat constantly,) but it simply sounds like something on loop and doesn't fill me with joy like the prospect of a new CD used to. I wait with baited breath. ????

I agree with you Christophe. its not possible to judge anything from what we have heard. I am expecting good things from this album however the first single is obviously going to be sony's choice and possibly the most commercial track on the album so I am am looking forward to hearing the whole lot. after all, he has spent a considerable amount of time making it. there also still is the possibility of an entirely solo album, which he has mentioned a few times. I think the collaboration album is to gain some credibility with the wider electronic community and a second solo effort will surface in time.

I never heard about these two ladies, but I`m interested to hear more about Natacha Atlas. Thank you for the " recommendation" Dr.Jones :)

Finaero - Sat Mar 28, 2015 2:00 pm

I remember when for a brief moment, people here thought that Chromatics - Tick of the Clock was a new JMJ track since it was featured in some JMJ car video. Hell, even I thought so for a moment. And it's quite a nice track, at that, and also quite Jarre-like (QVDUS comes to mind).

But it made me realize that JMJ isn't exactly a pioneer of sound these days.

And there are loads of artists trying to emulate (or succeeding at it) the 1970s analogue synthesizer sounds of JMJ, Tangerine Dream and the whole lot. So JMJ going that way would be yet another instance of "trying to relive past glories, eh?", which also was a somewhat common reaction to Oxygene 7-13 (which will turn legal later this year).

So the soundscapes of the new album will likely sound like just about any other record from the 2010s, but if the music is great, I don't give a hoot. Too early to tell if this is gonna be the case.

I think the song is cool and actually quite 21st century.

I am interested to see what will come.

I did crack up about some people on this thread telling each other if you can or can not judge a song by hearing it for 50%. I am pretty sure this song is not an audio version of the movie From Dusk Till Dawn!

Anyone, keep it up, it was an enjoyable read.

"EMIC" M83 and Jean-Michel Jarre together on the track "Glory" - 16 April 2015

The collaboration between Jean-Michel Jarre and M83 should not go unnoticed. Both composers reveal the title "Glory", created for the soundtrack of the short film "EMIC".

Almost 30 years apart but their passion for electronic music brings them together in 2015. The two French producers Jean-Michel Jarre and M83 have worked together on the track "Glory". This song will be available on download platforms on 15 May 2015. It was specially composed to accompany the images of the short film "EMIC" to discover exclusively on Google Play. This joint project of Google Play and Paramount Pictures was mentioned for the first time in November 2014. It had announced at the time a documentary inspired by the movie "Interstellar" by Christopher Nolan (2014) and called on users to contribute in its development by submitting their own video.

David Brodie and Angus Wall, Editor for "The Social Network" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" took care to select images from the 8,000 submitted videos. The result is impressive and wants to witness the world as men perceive it today, for future generations. The descendants of Jean-Michel Jarre and M83 is assured.

Yes, it has the same "darkness" and I recognise some drum sounds which sound like QVDUS.

I can say I like this track. A lot better than Glory. A lot. There's two parts in the song: a sequenced bit and a chorus with "choir". The choir has a typical JMJ flavor to it, sounds, drums. This feels more like a joint effort than M86's Glory is.

The JMJ remixes are quite identical to the original mix, which is how it always should have been since the 90s. Both have a guitar-sound halfway, which make it sound a bit like Rammstein. In fact, I can hear Till Lindemann sing over this song quite easily. There's a nice 'piano' line in it too, which is not heard in the original mix, the non-extended remix having it more than the extended mix. The original mix has an interesting transpose and some sequenced effects which remind me of Equinoxe 6.

Oh, you can buy the single release on BeatPro for 6.51 .

Scratch that, it's 8.50 (for me) when it adds bleedin' tax on top of it.

Oh wait, it's now 10.75 * when I choose WAV as the format since, y'know, lossless.

Yeah, I don't think so, chief.

It's a good track, though, now that I've listened to the samples a few hundred times. But still.

Oh wait, it's now 10.75 * when I choose WAV as the format since, y'know, lossless.

Yeah, I don't think so, chief.

It's a good track, though, now that I've listened to the samples a few hundred times. But still.

* = And yes, I was the one prepared to pay 500 for the original Kraftwerk red vinyl edition of Die Mensch Maschine. Sure, it's rare, but still...

Jean-Michel Jarre teams with Gesaffelstein for new single Conquistador
Written by FACT Team on 20 April 2015

The iconic French composer and producer is back with his first piece of original music in eight years.

Last month Jean-Michel Jarre teased that a new album was on the horizon and today fans get their first taste of it. Jarre has teamed with Gesaffelstein for Conquistador a song that will appear on the LP.

The new single for the still untitled album comes with a pair of alternate versions including a remix by Jarre and an extended mix. Listen to all three via Beatport and look for Jarres album later this year.

Listened to the track numerous times now. I have mixed feelings for it, I like it while not liking it* . I spot some elements of Globe Trotter in there, a possible nod towards Alabama 3? (Woke up this Morning), the Water For Life beat also. My only criticism is that they have made a 4 minute track out of 30 seconds. Its too repetitive*.
Dr_Jones - Tue Apr 21, 2015 2:36 pm

I think it's also got something of Eldorado (the female choir part). Which made me think: is there a connection between Conquistador and Eldorado? In history there is, so maybe JMJ had this in mind when composing?

Jean-Michel Jarre​: His new album in 2015!

Known especially for his mega concerts, Jarre release a new album in 2015. In the introduction, the famous French musician has already released two songs recorded duet Glory (with M83) and Conquistador (with Gesaffelstein).

Celebrated as a pioneering one of the major trends in the music industry today, electronic music composer Jean Michel Jarre elevated the style to the heights of popularity never reached in the 1970s and 1980s, 60 million albums sold worldwide to date. Emerging at the same time as an international star, he created a new kind of outdoor events, concerts which remains absolutely unique.

In 1976, Jean Michel Jarre made a spectacular breakthrough in the music business with his Oxygene album that gets the Prix de lAcadmie Charles Cros Award in France and climbs to the top of the charts worldwide. This international success is unmatched today in the French record history, with nearly 12 million albums sold.

After Geometry of Love (2003), To & Ta (2007) and the re-release of Oxygene - precursor album, which sold 12 million copies - in high definition (2007), the pioneer of electronic music announces the release of a new album in 2015. His first titled Glory extract is a collaboration with artist M83, used as soundtrack of the short film EMIC.

Another was announced simultaneously Conquistador recorded this time with the French artist Gesaffelstein. "I wanted to work with him. His music is very dark, mystical," says Jean-Michel Jarre. For its part, the Lyon musician does not hide his pride: "When I started music, I went to the side of the pioneers of electro interested to work for synthesizers and technology of the time. His music is in the collective unconscious. It is a classic of electronic music."

I am the same. I listen to them over and over and loose track. But do not want to effective others around me so I hear them also on my headphones. But the AeroSystem One blasts them during the weekend in intervals.

Jote - Fri Apr 24, 2015 9:01 am

I'm really surprised that people find Conquistador "jarresque". I might be too conservative with regards to what I perceive as "jarresque" but Conquistador to me is "Teo & Tea meets Metamorphoses". I don't find the gated choirs, electric guitar and piano "jarresque" at all.

I also feel that the general consensus here is that so far those tracks would go unnoticed if they weren't bearing the "JMJ & X" sticker, and that there is "95% X and 5% JMJ" in those tracks. I would submit that this will be the case with all the remaining tracks. JMJ said that people will know who did what in "Conquistador". Oh sure, the cliche "phased strings" are "obviously JMJ".

That being said, I kind of like "Glory". Yes, it does sound like a "football anthem" a bit, but I'd say I feel more of a JMJ vibe in it than in "Conquistador". Maybe it's because of the arpeggio and the odd "synthesized-voice-alike" hook. I could see this track played at concert finales, much like RV4 or Chrono 4 in the past.

There's also one more thing about "Glory" that speaks to me much better than "Conquistador". It has MELODY. A catchy one. I can actually HUM IT. I guess I like tracks I can replay in my head without actually listening to them.

What is truly "Jarresque music" anyway? He has got so many different styles from one album to an other and different people to work with through the years so for me it's quite difficult to even tell.

While listening to Gessafelstein's latest work I can't help but feeling more and more fascinated by his sound. How come I never heard of this man before?
If JMJ wasn't still among us I would say he could've been a right down reincarnated Jean-Michel Jarre because you can find that same mystique and sometimes spoky sound as you can find in JMJ's early work.
Gesaffelstein is using modern DJ-equipment in a far more "Deserted Palace" way then JMJ himself will ever be able to do!

I fully agree ! :) I also think he has showed so much creative facettes of electronic Music through his life. I think everybody will find his favourite style.
Im also interested to hear more about Gesaffelstein now :)

But I wondering why they sold downloads only on beatport ? I think Amazon and ITunes are much more popular for musicdownloads.

I see your point. But if he did the same thing over and over again - wouldn't we get bored at some point? Then people would complain he is doing the same concept over and over again without moving forward. Either way, people would still complain. In the end it's a matter of taste. I didn't enjoy most of his work since 1996 the same way as before. There were some ups, but also downs. But then again - it's a matter of taste, right?

'Conquistador' sees Jarre and Gesaffelstein team up for a track that combines the best of what both producers have to offer.

The track will feature on Jarre's new album, and demonstrates Jean-Michel's desire to work with leading producers from the new generation.

I think I would've preferred being "bored" than "meh".

Also, I'm not keen to believe we are hearing much JMJ's work in these tracks. I think it's a 95:5 ratio ("Phased strings, see? Wink wink"). His name is just slapped on some random tracks, because "JMJ" is still a powerful brand. Imagine such a win-win: JMJ finally releases an album without doing much work and some artists will get broader recognition - how many of us have heard about this Gesaffelstein guy before? How many of us are suddenly keen to explore his other works?

I'd love if he focused on catering to his older fanbase - you know, releasing the unreleased and so on.

(My own conspiracy theory is that JMJ has been using "help" like this (in smaller or larger extent) since 1997 - there was a sudden change in his choice of chords and harmonies)

Christophe - Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:12 pm

I know the music of JMJ since I was a child of 1 year old. My dad let me listen to Oxygene and Equinoxe, 2 LP's that he bought in 1979. I became a fan since 1991. I like most of his music but not everything. There are some things that I really dislike for example some remixes or parts of albums. But I think that is for everyone the same. Following Jarre blind and like everything that he does is foolish and idolize him. That is wrong in my eyes. Of course there will be good and bad moments in the new collaboration-album. And everybody need to choose for themselves what he like or dislike on the new album. You can not choose for other ones what they need to listen. For example Conquistador can be a masterpiece for me and you but for others can be the biggest trash that JMJ ever made. I see this forum as a place for to share your opinion with others. And respect others opinion of course. :wink:

:) Yes I agree with you fully. I feel the same, I like most of JMJ had made, depending on the feeling it changes from time to time, but never like all at the same time. I'm also a big fan of other artists (for example, Schiller, Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Vangelis, Pink Floyd) none of the artists I like everything, usually between 70-80% maybe. I also think that its normal. People who like everything're probably in love with the artist... or like sectarian. :nod:
I also find the discussion here interesting, but I do not like it so much when people want to dictate which pieces are great, which not. This is still a matter of taste, a matter of current feeling.

You have a point here. It's quite obvious that Jarre seems to have lost certain parts of his creativity to some degeree over the last 15 years or so. And maybe he turned out to be more a kind of "producer" rather than "composer" nowadays. But I hardly doubt he did all his pre '97-work entirley on his own, too. On a certain level, it's nearly impossible to do everything on your own. That's why artists work with producers, composers, lyricists, managers and the likes. And of course successful artists are brands and some might draw more attention because of their names than others. I would also not be suprised if the fact that he's the son of the great Maurice Jarre had hepled him building his career in the past. The brand "Jarre" was already there and that was a main benifit for JMJ, for sure.

I don't think it is because JMJ doesn't care, but more a question of rights and availability of quality masters.

(My own conspiracy theory is that JMJ has been using "help" like this (in smaller or larger extent) since 1997 - there was a sudden change in his choice of chords and harmonies)


Wasn't that the time when he and Michel Geiss parted ways? I think that Michel Geiss had a major influence on his work.

The extent of their collaboration/relationship was actually covered in a series of nice interviews last year, very interesting stuff. Here's the thread! http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6134

I know the music of JMJ since I was a child of 1 year old. My dad let me listen to Oxygene and Equinoxe, 2 LP's that he bought in 1979. I became a fan since 1991. I like most of his music but not everything. There are some things that I really dislike for example some remixes or parts of albums. But I think that is for everyone the same. Following Jarre blind and like everything that he does is foolish and idolize him. That is wrong in my eyes. Of course there will be good and bad moments in the new collaboration-album. And everybody need to choose for themselves what he like or dislike on the new album. You can not choose for other ones what they need to listen. For example Conquistador can be a masterpiece for me and you but for others can be the biggest trash that JMJ ever made. I see this forum as a place for to share your opinion with others. And respect others opinion of course. :wink:

:) Yes I agree with you fully. I feel the same, I like most of JMJ had made, depending on the feeling it changes from time to time, but never like all at the same time. I'm also a big fan of other artists (for example, Schiller, Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Vangelis, Pink Floyd) none of the artists I like everything, usually between 70-80% maybe. I also think that its normal. People who like everything're probably in love with the artist... or like sectarian. :nod:
I also find the discussion here interesting, but I do not like it so much when people want to dictate which pieces are great, which not. This is still a matter of taste, a matter of current feeling.


+1. As Black Bird mentioned Schiller: He's currently working on an new album and mostly fans want him to go "back to the roots" again. Why not let him evolve? :?

I don't know what that is, but having just bought the official release I can definitely say that this is NOT the "JMJ extended RMX". It might be an early version (a "demo", precisely) - the structure is different and mixing seems to be slightly off.

A quick diff between the "original mix" and "JMJ" versions:
- the original mix features a key change
- electric guitar and the powerful drums are only in JMJ's mixes

Da hast du recht, ich wundere mich darber auch. Fans knnen manchmal sicher demotivierend sein und wie Bremskltze auf die Kreativitt der Knstler wirken (wenn er verunsichert ist, und sich nach deren Meinung richtet) .Schiller hat mit den letzten beiden Alben sicher eine Menge neuer Fans dazugewonnen, gerade weil Christopher von Deylen mal abseits seiner bisherigen "Reiseroute" gegangen ist.
Man kann es ohnehin nie allen recht machen. Entweder freuen sich die Leute wenn es eine Weiterentwicklung, neue Kreativittsschbe gibt, und meckern wenn die Knstler ihre eingefahrenen Straen nie verlassen. Oder sie erwarten gerade das von den Knstlern: Neue Inspiration, neue Ausdrucksformen, und Mut auf sich auf neue Wege zu begeben.

Das ist bei Jean Michel Jarre ebenso. Er kann tun was er will, es wird immer Leute geben, denen es nicht gefllt und die bis zum Abwinken Oxygene hren wollen.

You're right, I am surprised too. Fans can sometimes be sure demotivating and as brake pads on the creativity of the artists work (if he is insecure, and guided by their opinion) .Schiller has won with the last two albums certainly a lot of new fans, just because Christopher von Deylen went off his previous "itinerary". :wink: One can never going to please everyone. Either enjoy the people if there is a further development of new bursts of creativity, and complain when the artist never leave their retracted streets. Or they just expect this from the artists: new inspiration, new forms of expression, and courage to embark on a new path.
(that`s me )

This is just as Jean Michel Jarre. He can do what he wants, there will always be people who do not like and want to hear ( until you drop) Oxygene-style

Really? I love it when Jarre plays around with sounds instead of creating melodies. That's why my favourite tracks with him are the ones that only have hints of melody. And sometimes he even manages to make his tracks catchy without much melody, like Arpegiator (give it a listen, there's really not much melodies and tunes going on there).

My favourite parts of his albums are always the ones where there's little melody going on. Best track on Chronologie is Chronologie 7, for instance.

I thought Oxygene 7-13, Aero (new tracks), Geometry of Love and a couple of tracks of To & Ta fit right in the Jarresque category. The only real one I see as something completely non-Jarre is Sessions 2000. That album is just boring with exception of March 23.

Also, so far I haven't actually given Glory completely a listening. Just find it awful along with Conquistador. Hopefully the actual album will have some good stuff, but so far it does nothing for me...

No, not really. It's precisely this album where JMJ started using new chords and harmonies that are not in line with his previous work - the one I fell in love with.

Velodynamic - Wed Apr 29, 2015 7:43 pm

I remember when I was 15 and I found the album Revolutions in a store (1990). When I got home and listened to it for the first time I found myself in a state of chock!
I couldn't for my life understand what the hell Jean-Michel Jarre was doing in that album because it was so totally different from what I used to like about his music and it took me years to finally appreciate some good stuff in it.
I still have some hard times with Tokyo Kid, Computer Weekend and September. This is just one out of several path changes I've discovered through his career. JMJ has always been unpredictable and will always be.

Finaero - Wed Apr 29, 2015 7:52 pm

The main thing that bothers me with these collaborations - and not just JMJ's - is that you really just keep on wondering how much of it is really by one artist and how much is the other's work. Songs like Under Pressure by Queen/David Bowie is one of the rare ones where it doesn't matter at all who made what, because the song itself is just so damn good. With these glories and conquistadors (I still prefer the latter, it's very QVDUS), there's no similar feeling, to be honest.

(My favorite post-1997 Jarre work would still be Paris Bourges https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DxcrB2M71A )

I have a soft spot for Revolutions. It came out on my 16th birthday, and it was the first Jarre album I knew would be coming out in advance, so I was painstakingly waiting for it. And when you are 16, you still haven't become cynical about music, so I didn't care that it wasn't a ground breaking or forward thinking album.

Nowadays I realise that the album is filled with presets, and synth-wise it's a bit lazy. The music is also very over the top, and I fully understand why some people really loathe Jarre's music.

But it doesn't matter. There are some great soloing going on, and listening to the album I'm filled with great memories of an innocent and fun time. And I think that's the main point with music. So I like it, even though I know that if it had been released today, I most likely wouldn't.

Tokyo Kid is the best track on the album. It's the only song on there that shows any sign of real creativity, and it is actually quite fresh, displaying a style that others wouldn't really do until the mid 90s.

Maybe it is that annoying "trumpet" sound (whatever) that really puts me off. Sure it could maybe sound great to the more Jazz oriented people. I don't know of that.
The bombastic parts of Industrial Revolution is rather my cup of tea I guess.

Let's hope JMJ has got a back-up plan if this collaborations album doesn't turn out well.
Something like a second album all by himself.

Wow, aren't we positive today? I have no doubts that they will sell out. A lot of people buy vinyls, and Jarre still has a fan base.

Of course, Vinyl Factory (like the name implies) caters especially to vinyl aficionados. And just take a look at their ridiculously expensive PSB special sets (Yes and Electric), they've got their audience marked down to a T.

Anyway, of all formats I like collecting vinyl, but that doesn't mean I get picky over the other formats (like some people do). Of course, this has been discussed before.

In any case, who can forget how in 2005 the vinyl version of Depeche Mode's Playing the Angel was truly the best one since it wasn't tainted by the Loudness War as its other formats were.. whereas in 2011, JMJ's Essentials & Rarities reminded us that yes, you can screw up vinyl mastering as well.

Yeah one pound is just barely 1,40. Two years ago it was just 1,16...

Thanks Obama! :evil:


Edit: I orderd all three. Why the hell not?

I love the track by Tangerine Dream !!! For me its the best until now. :nod:
But I dont order this at this british seller. He is a bit suspect for me. No Impressum and he want to know "everything" about me and told only a litte about this company. Youl will know about the Price after registering and how to pay. Thats not fair. On the other hand he tell nothing about what he will done with my data (especially the Telefonnumber) and other questions about warranty. Its to expensive to risk it.

I think I will buy a CD later or will buy a download by ITunes or Amazon.....I waited such a long time , so I can wait a little longer :wink:

Also for comparison, Kraftwerk doesn't rely on a massive ad campaign for their album concerts either. They mostly seem to follow the pattern of "concert dates get featured on the site, 20 minutes later they're sold out". In their case, the hear-say is of course quite more widespread than with JMJ.

@Black Bird: Vinyl Factory is a professional trustworthy source (they're more or less the company that has made these special records to begin with), even if they ask too many questions.

Above & Beyond Official SoundCloud - 12 May 2015
Jean-Michel Jarre & Tangerine Dream - Zero Gravity (Above & Beyond Remix)

Release Date: 19 June 2015 on Beatport & iTunes
Limited release vinyl pre-order: vfeditions.com
Follow on Spotify: po.st/sAB

"For me, Jean-Michel Jarre is one of the founding fathers of electronic music. His music has always been sonically and musically creative, so when I first heard his music as a kid it was one of the main things that inspired me to want to make electronic music. Jarre also created the big show format for an electronic performer.

With the remix of Zero Gravity", the idea was to draw on the early influences from Jarres music combined with ideas from the track itself and inject some Above & Beyond into the mix."

Jarre is doing good business.

I already spent 5 times the amount of a regular full length album.

Yes definitely the most interesting tracks so far.
I use my old mobile phone specially for situations like this. It has been kept activated and loaded with about 10 for many many years with its only perpose to take care of telemarketers or other tricksters. Most of them are blocked away in the phone's "black list" memory.
Though I never call from that phone. I use a newer phone with an other number for private calls with people I know and trust.
It's always a risk buying stuff online.

I personally recommend just waiting a few days for someone to make a rip of the vinyls with some insane gear. That's what I do with quite a few albums. Random Acces Memories sounds absolutely terrific on that rip! :nod:

Finaero - Wed May 13, 2015 4:53 am

Those rips are nice. Doesnt even come close to putting the needle on the record on your own player, however. :]
Jakob BC - Wed May 13, 2015 6:24 am

I did not even have time enough to give the tracks a listen. About one minute of Zero Gravity, and I just jad to put my name on the preorder. JMJ and TD on the same track!! Just couldn't miss out on this one :-) reading that this was some of the last tones of Froese, this one is very unique and special.
The massive attack stuff did not catch my attention yet. Im looking forward to the forthcoming album.

No confirmation here either. Only from paypal. Last time I ordered from them (about a year ago) I received a confirmation instantaneously from both paypal and VFE. And the shipping costs were a third of the amount they charge now.

The products they deliver are stunning. It's all heavy weight vinyl, strong cardboard covers and unique recordings.

Jakob BC - Wed May 13, 2015 6:42 am

The shippingcosts to my country was about 5. Thats less than what I would have to pay for sending it to my neighbour. The price is fair from that point of view. That was for one record only. I don't know how much it would be for all three.

Dr_Jones - Wed May 13, 2015 10:07 am

We finally get track-expanding remixes on the single releases instead of those dull dance remixes (with the exception of Zero Gravity whose remix is utter crap). This makes me happy.

Best tracks (so far) for me is Glory and then Conquistador. Zero gravity is less good.

Electronic maestro Jean-Michel dedicates Zero Gravity to late Tangerine Dream mainman

The late Edgar Froese is featured on an EP to be launched by Jean-Michel Jarre next month.

Zero Gravity was recorded in collaboration with Tangerine Dream before Froese died in January aged 70. It's one of three titles to be released in a limited-edition vinyl run of 1000 copies each.

The track is described as a journey across a host of ambient, electronic and synth-heavy sounds. It's accompanied by Watching You, featuring Massive Attacks Robert 3D Del Naja, and Conquistador with techno artist Mike Levy, aka Gesaffelstein.

Jarre has issued teasers of Zero Gravity and the other two pieces, all of which will appear on his next album. The EPs arrive on June 19 via The Vinyl Factory, pressed on 180g vinyl, and they're now available to pre-order.

So, "Zero Gravity" is pretty much "Night in Shanghai 2.0"?
millau - Thu May 14, 2015 8:24 am

Ok, the Tangerine dream track is the most boring track ever, even the remix sounds so old. It is back to 1993(the remix) the Original (OMG, what a bullshit) I don't like Tangerine dream. They are so old in music. Always the same and the same. It is like synthesiser greatest music. Music for the older men. Nobody cares about tangerine dream. I hope that Jarre will collaborate with Kraftwerk. These guys are the inventors and the masters of electronic music of today and the future.
Finaero - Thu May 14, 2015 8:44 am

Each to their own, and Tangerine Dream's audience reaches far far far more people than just "old men". ;)

In any case, I'm really glad that the whole "collaboration album" didn't turn out to be just mere rumors or unrealized ideas and that he's actually working with greats such as Tangerine Dream (or rather, did work, RIP Edgar Froese) and other popular electronic artists (like Massive Attack). Then again, where's Daft Punk? ;)

And on that note, a project like this would have been totally unheard of 10 years ago, when JMJ was still more of a "pariah" of the (electronic) music community. Good to see that he's earned more respect from his fellow musicians (and other people) in the mean time.

Even then, a full unedited concert video of the Paris La Defense concert is still the Holy Grail of JMJ releases that they should just get around to making and releasing on DVD or BluRay (even if the video quality wouldn't be up to the BR standards).
