Röyksopp: "Electronic music would not be as it is without Jean-Michel Jarre"
Svein: Lovebirds, "Want You In My Soul" ! It's really good, everyone loved him. There are elements of house but also progressive house. It sounds like a classic but in a good way. Everything is there: the voice of the soul singer, the woman's voice on the chorus, the bridge ... it's a piece that unifies, I think that's why we played at the end. It is often praised Yello, Art of Noise, Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode, and of course Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis. Jean-Michel Jarre was a huge influence for us during our childhood and adolescence. The first three or four albums, Oxygene, Equinoxe ...
Torbjørn: Zoolook is not too bad! And the song " Computer Weekend "in Revolutions.
Svein And some Rendez-Vous also. Electronic music today would not be as it is without him. We met there a few times and he expressed our love for music. He returned the compliment us on our music and Senior. And this is not something that came out of his assistant, he actually control the thing and showed a deep knowledge in terms of electronic music. It was good to hear. In terms of influences, I think it has been abused and it is just a shame.
That's basically exactly the same things Röyksopp told me when I interviewed them here in Molde during Molde International Jazz Festival in 2011. I was wearing my Equinoxe t-shirt, and we talked quite a lot about Jarre after the interview was over.
Unfortunately this interview was never published, because while I was talking with Röyksopp, Anders Behring Breivik went apeshit and killed over 80 people at the labour party's youth camp at the island Utøya outside Oslo. Naturally the newspapers had other concerns the next day, and the concert with Röyksopp was cancelled when it dawned on us what had happened.
When I was supposed to interview Jarre in Bergen later that year I met them again. I was backstage, all ready to start talking to Jarre, when the duo walked in the door. Because of this I had to cancel my interview since Jarre was going to talk to them about a possible cooperation (I got to the interview later and it's posted in English here on this forum).
When Svein saw me he asked me if I was the one who had interviewed them on that dreadful day of all the killings. I confirmed and he said: "I should have known we would find you here".
This performance is bliss. This track like Jamie Irrepressible in general, had to grow on me, and now I simply love both the track and that very dark bright-voiced melancholi Jamie can perform and express.
The album hits the emotions of the theme invitable end super well. This is how you can close a chapter as well as other happier endings.
