Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Jean-Michel Jarre English Book
by Michael Duguay, translated in english by Nicolas Kern

Image

Release march 2019

A tape recorder. It is this device that served as the first electronic instrument to Jean-Michel Jarre: « My grandfather had given me a tape recorder and with my rock band, I recorded guitar solos that I was reversing, organ parts that I was slowing down. » Passionate about sound, the young Jarre applied to the Musical Research Group in 1968: 200 candidates present themselves for 4 places. Jean-Michel Jarre passes the exam and joins the GRM, which is then the best school in the world concerning electro-acoustic music.
Trained by Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer, Jean-Michel Jarre discovers an innovative approach to music at the time. Speaking of Pierre Henry, JMJ said: « He is the first, with Pierre Schaeffer, who said that the music was not only made of notes based on music theory, but sounds and that we could go out with a microphone and go record the sound of the rain, the sound of the wind, and make music out of it. »
On leaving the GRM, Jean-Michel Jarre becomes a composer, lyricist, arranger and producer. And then in 1976, in his apartment turned into a home studio, he composes a record of instrumental music that nobody wants: Oxygène. Producer Francis Dreyfus accepts to release the album and it's a revolution. Thanks to this record, « He [Jean-Michel] has made millions of people discover electronic music! » Moby

From Lyon to Equinoxe Infinity, discover the story of one of the pioneers of electronic music.

There was a google-translated publication of the previous edition. It was quite horrible. Human-translation is always better. Machines are not learning for a long time.

Oh, I disagree. Google's auto-translation has gotten "infinitely" better over the last couple of years. There was a Polish article about JMJ a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't believe how good the auto-translation to English was, bar a couple of idioms.

When I began to translate the book in English, I put it in Google Translation. Some parts were good, but some other were incredibly wrong, with the translation of the synth names, album names, people... :D

Well, to quote what I wrote on Facebook about this book:

"I started reading the English version yesterday, but I'm sorry to say that the translation (and I'm using that word very loosely here) is on par with Google translate. It's really bad and it's not something you should put on the market and charge money for.

I admire the effort to do such a book, and there are some bits which gave me info I didn't already know, but the English is so bad that it's often hard to understand what the info really means.

Maybe the book is a good read in its original version (even though it's a bit superficial), but not in English. Sorry."

I don't mean to be an a-hole, but this is objectively the truth. Thankfully I ordered the digital edition, because I only read as far as Equinoxe before I gave up.

If the other languages are also translated like this, you should pull them off the market. Someone will start demanding their money back.

Is that the old edition or the new one? Because it looks like the new edition has been re-translated from scratch.
