Must be the largest amount of same name tracks with Jarre's name to it - HEXAGON 1 - 99


Begs for ONE MORE though, doesn't it? ;)


99 is the maximum nuber of tracks according to the red book standard.

Haven't come across this CD anywhere and ordering will potentially take days to, if not, weeks. Really want to listen to this, but availability is a mess sadly :(


I ordered it at Plato and it only took a few days. But be quick; I think the release is getting rare.

If you for some reason can't or don't want to buy but still listen to it the whole thing is on YouTube. :wink:

I have it ordered, but still waiting for it to be shipped. I'll see once it arrives.

This disc seems to contain a mastering designed for radio broadcasting.

There is a cut at 15 khz (like with an mp3 @96 kbps), ie Hexagone 14 :


Someone suggests this mastering could come from Netia software used by Franceinfo FM radio to broadcast in "mp2 @256 kbps". :idea: (http://forums.lenodal.com...=504504#p504504)

This counts for the entire album?

Yes. (It may sound strange for a "CD-DA" but I think it was done intentionally.... I have none of the previous "Radiophonie" to compare. :| )

That's quite a shame that the whole thing is of lower quality. Might be worth a shot to send an email to see if it was deliberate or that something went wrong.

I understand from this discussion that apparently even despite 99 tracks the CD does not include everything? There are supposedly "more orchestral" versions used by franceinfo?

I read somewhere that Hexagone was composed in 10 days, and JMJ provided about 230 tracks to "franceinfo:". (Due to Red Book limitation we can have 99 tracks on a CD-DA.)

It seems that some are a little bit more orchestral and not on the CD.

For those who may have downloaded the tracks from somewhere but missing the artwork.

They should've released it as a digital download and that would solve that problem...

Could've also just make it a three disc edition. Would've been pretty cool having all the tracks instead of this. But still.
