Jean-Michel Jarre in the Echoes Podcast - Listen to the Jean Michel Jarre interview - October 2015
Legendary French electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre has his first album in 8 years and perhaps his best since 1984’s Zoolook. Jarre is renowned for his best-selling debut Oxygene in 1976.
The son of famed film composer Maurice Jarre and a student of French musique concrete pioneer Pierre Schaeffer, Jarre is steeped in the lineage of electronic music. So on his new album, Electronica 1: The Time Machine, he creates his own trip through electronic history, collaborating with contemporaries like Tangerine Dream, electronica artists M83, Moby, Massive Attack and Air and techno artist Armin Van Buren. In an exclusive interview, Jean-Michel Jarre plugs us in to an electronic history lesson.

My vinyl gatefold copy of "The Time Machine" arrived today on 'Back to the Future day' (without the deLorean)
Ok so own up who has had any sensations of AMSR (head/ear/spine tingles) during Electronica ?
I find some of the sounds/music challenging to listen to like the beginning of "Close your eyes". It's like tinnitus.
Some of my favourite pieces of music are almost too painful to listen to eg the rubber band sounds in Royksopp's Monument (The inevitable end version). But in a GOOD way. They create a physical reaction/response.
Art and music are supposed to challenge your senses sometimes and Electronica certainly does for me.....
I'm still listening to it properly on headphones for the first time, and am discovering more.
