This is the first time I heard about that :?: And you :?:

The music in fact is the second part of ethnicolor 1, a bit revisited....
I played that game :D

I heard that version of "Ethnicolor" somewhere, but I don't play that game... :wink:

Greetzzz...

Nico_Noyau - Mon Jun 05, 2006 8:56 am

:D

Is it possible to have a record of that music ? :D

GeeJee - Mon Jun 05, 2006 12:41 pm

I knew that. It's LOL :D

looks oldschool... reminds me of good old times. I haven't tried it though.

Thank you for your answers ! I don't know if JM made other musics for video games ? I know that Paul Haslinger (ex-Tangerine Dream) composes for this industry (particularly for Ubisoft).

JMJ did NOT compose music for Captain Blood. The music featured in the game is a cover version of Ethnicolor by an unknown artist. ;)

I know that one. Jarre's music was used in several games back in the eighties.

A few weeks ago I have downloaded the game for my Amiga emulator. But I don't know what you have to do in this game, it's a very strange videogame I think... By the way - you can download it on this site:

The game "Bomb Jack" for the C64 used "Magnetic Fields 2", as far as I can remember....

Yes, that's true. Today I have played this game again on my C64 emulator - very funny! It's like a time journey back to the good old times in the 80's. Download the game here:

There are two versions of Captain Blood music, both are edited version of Ethnicolor I part 2.
There are lots of Jarre cover on Amiga demo; I have lots of modules somewhere.

I seem to recall seeing a CD, of Jarre music taken from games, for sale on ebay a few months ago.

Thanks, I didn't know!

Hi,

I recently dug up an email-interview I did with Mr. Philippe Ulrich, co-creator of the Captain Blood video game.
I thought you could be interested. :nod:

Here are my questions :
Quote:
Many Jarre fans are interested to know more about the "Ethnicolor" version from the "Captain Blood" game.
Was this version made by Jarre himself, or was it simply remixed by somebody else ?

Also, we would be very interested to know more about the collaboration with Jarre.
Did you showed the project to Jarre to obtain his agrement, or did you simply conclude a financial agreement for copyright.


Here is the reply, translated in English :
Quote:
Dear,

Didier Bouchon (the Captain Blood programmer & graphic artist) made for me a basic tool to manipulate samples on Atari ST.
I used 4 measures of Zoolook to make the entire music of Blood; playing forward, backward, slowed down, speeded up, etc...
One evening, I showed the game to JMJ, at his Chatou studio. He was an Atari fan.
He wanted to collaborate with us on graphic creations for a Tokyo concert that finally did not took place.
He was really amazed, and told me that those machines were not supposed to do what we programmed.
He asked me to change two measures for musical exactness reason and gave me the authorisation to use the music for free in the entire world.
Two days later, I received a telex from Francis Dreyfus (it acted as a registered mail at this time) giving me the authorisation to use the music.
I was amazed...
There was no money involved at all, it was just a matter of mutual admiration between artists, it still happens, I can attest it.
Jean Michel will eternally have my respect.
It was my friend Michel Geiss who introduce me to Jean Michel.
That's it.

Friendly.
Philippe Ulrich.

Cher xxx,

Didier Bouchon m'avait fait un petit utilitaire sur Atari pour traiter les "samples", j'ai utilisé 4 mesures de Zoolook pour faire toute le musique de Blood, a l'endroit, à l'envers, ralenti, accéléré etc...
J'ai montré le jeu a JMJ chez lui un soir, dans son studio a Chatou, il était fan d'Atari.
Il voulait qu'on participe a des créations graphiques pour un concert a Tokyo qui n'a malheuresement pas eu lieu.
Il a été réellement bluffé et m'a dit que ses machines ne pouvaient pas faire ce que nous avions programmé.
Il m'a fait modifier deux mesures pour des questions de rigueur musicales et m'a dit qu'il me donnait l'autorisation d'utiliser cette musique gratuitement pour le monde entier.
Deux jours plus tard je recevais un telex de Francis Dreyfus (qui faisait office de recommandé à l'époque) m'autorisant a utiliser cette musique.
J'étais sur le cul...
Il n'y a pas eu 1 centime échangé sur cette transaction, c'était un coup de foudre entre artiste, ça existe encore je peux vous l'assurer.
Jean Michel aura droit éternellement à mon respect.
C'est mon ami Michel gueiss qui m'avait mis en rapport avec Jean michel.
Voila tout

Bien amicalement

Philippe ulrich

Bonjour,

Je fais partie d'un groupe de discussion sur Jean-Michel Jarre, dont je suis fan.

Une question que beaucoup de fans se posent est de savoir si la version de "Ethnicolor" qu'on peut entendre dans l'écran d'intro a été faite par Jarre lui-même ou bien s'il s'agit d'une version remixée par quelqu'un d'autre (qui ?).

Egalement, nous aimerions savoir comment s'est passé la collaboration avec lui.
Lui avez-vous présenté le projet pour obtenir son accord et le motiver, ou bien s'agissait-il d'un simple arrangement financier pour les droits d'auteur ?


Je vous remercie d'avance pour les quelques minutes de votre temps que vous voudrez bien me consacrer.



Also, every version of the Captain Blood game, including the required PC emulator and ROM are available here :

Enjoy. :peacemaan:
