Jean-Michel Jarre interview in Rolling Stone (French Magazine) - October 2018

There is an interesting statement in this interview:
"The last track, Équinoxe Infinity, was made together with a group at Microsoft that specializes in artificial intelligence. I added to the algorithm my "personal big data" made of samples, loops and sounds, in which the machine dug to generate a new result."
The rest is standard Q&A.
One of Jarre's statements is very inaccurate. He states that his Electronica tour was "made up of 250 concerts, with only 7% played in France"... All in all, I counted 73 Electronica concerts (45 in 2016, 17 in 2017 and 11 in 2018), out of which 10 were in France, that almost 14%... I can understand he doesn't know the exact number of concerts in his tour as much as the fans who follow his career, but there's a big difference between 250 and 73!
That's with this kind of exaggeration that we've ended up with "80 million albums sold"
