Teraz Rock - Jean-Michel Jarre: Third season [INTERVIEW] - 04/07/2017

July 8 Jean Michel Jarre will perform at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk as part of the Electronica World Tour. A day later you will see him at Tauron Arena in Krakow. Exactly forty years after the breakthrough album Oxygene , upcoming concerts and exciting future plans, he told us personally in a special conversation for

Are these the only tracks remaining after the Electronica project?

No, such unfinished ideas are more. I would like to finish it all. I worked, among others. With Adrian Utley of Portishead or Wille Gregory of Goldfrapp. It's not finished yet, but I want to spend it sometime. One of the British journalists told me that I created something that is an endless album. Why not? All the time there are some opportunities to work with someone. Like Damon Albarn, on the occasion of the new album Gorillaz. So I'll probably do something with Damon for my project too. And as such things get more, probably another album will come out, but for now I have no specific plans.

I translated the interesting bits


JMJ: I chose only the tracks that I could perform myself, sometimes with playback vocals or vocoder. Besides tracks from the Electronica album I also decided to perform several reworked tracks from my past, and also since last year I also added some new tracks composed especially for these concerts. Those things from the past, from Zoolook and other obviously sound much different.

TR: Any chances of this new material being released in one way or another?

JMJ: No idea yet. I like the idea of composing tracks exclusively for a live performance. They might appear on a concert album which will be released at some point, but I don't have any plans regarding that for the time being.

TR: I've obviously seen last year concerts and I have to admit that the biggest surprise was the guitar! I knew that you played this instrument at the beginning of your career, but I haven't seen you with a guitar for ages...

JMJ: This was actually purely incidental, as I didn't have plans for that. I created this piece with Gessafelstein and since the very beginning I had a heavy-metal guitar in mind. Something in the vein of NIN. Gesaffelstein had a more minimalistic approach, so we kept a minimalistic version on the album, but I wanted to bring back this idea on stage - the idea of dirty, metal guitar performance with electronic sequences.

TR: When we spoke a couple of times during past months you made a point of not planning to release an "Electronica 3". What is going to happen with remaining compositions, like for instance the other parts of Travelator recorded with Pete Townshend or the piece you recorded with David Lynch?

JMJ: It's all about finding a suitable moment and occasion. I don't want to release them purely for the sake of releasing them. I intend to release them when an appropriate moment comes.

TR: Are those the only pieces remaining after Electronica?

No, there are actually more of such unfinished ideas. I'd like to finish them all. I worked with Adrian Utley from Portished or Willem Gregory from Goldfrapp. All this is not finished but I plan to release it at some point. One of journalists from UK told me that I'd created something that is a never-ending album. Why not? Opportunities to work with someone pop up everytime. Like for instance with Damon Albaran with new Gorillaz album. So I'll likely do something with Damon with regards to my project. When more of such things accumulate there'll likely be a new album, but I don't have any precise plans at the moment.

The artist announces that it is quite different concerts. New songs composed specifically for this tour, and older ones re-arranged. In addition to nice things for the ear cannot miss a feast for the eye. 3D visuals and laser effects will surely raise the level of reception of the entire concert.

Jean-Michel Jarre in Krakow

Since the 1990s, Jean Michel Jarre has discovered that electronic music has turned toward techno, with better or worse effects trying to adapt its work to this trend. He does not forget about what brought him the most fame - and regularly creates more variations on the album "Oxygene". All of this was heard live on Sunday evening during the concert of the French virtuoso synthesizer in Kraków Tauron Arena.
