Anyone remember which video this screencap is from?

http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.p ... 527#191527

In any case, that's from the "JMJ praises Crapwater's work" video I mentioned at some point before. So with Sony as his record company and Perreau employed by them, we're not gonna get rid of him even if JMJ himself said that he didn't like the masters anyway.

But the eternal question remains, are the radio live recordings of Paris La Defense stored in an (extant) lossless format in the Europe 2 archives (or Mike Mansfeld's bathroom)? :punch:

The more I listen to Oxygene 3 ... It's far too squished, it doesn't suit the material at all, which needs to be light and ethereal.
Which is why I ripped from the vinyl - here's a Oxygene 17 comparison

I really can't shake off the thought that this album is more or less "Sessions 2017". While Oxygene 17 is one of his most brilliant tracks in his repertoire, Oxygene 19 has a hint of Bourges going on and the latter half of Oxygene 20 is elegant and moving in its simplicity... the Electronica albums are far far far better than this one.

Which all makes sense, of course, considering that JMJ didn't really feel like making this album and put it together in a few weeks.

Which only makes O17's greatness a wonderful dash of genius. ;)

Oxygene 3 is a masterpiece in my opinion. JMJ pulled off the very difficult trick of a current album with Oxygene style themes without falling back on old glories. As JMJ said it's Oxygene as written today ...

Oxygene 14, 15, 17 and 20 are as good as anything JMJ has ever written. Remarkable considering the tight schedule and pressure. Then again JMJ said these constraints were an
aid to composition, and were similar to the situation surround the recording of the original in 1976.

If anything 'The Train and the River' is closer to Sessions 2015/16/17 than anything else ...

The Train and the River being very close to Sessions 2000/Bourges was the first thing I said about it when I heard it. It's a great track. Though I do have to wonder why this album never got the 5.1 surround sound mix. We went from being promised to having all future albums be in 5.1 to the weird 3D mixing of a few tracks on Electronica: The Time Machine and now were back to stereo and nothing else :|

Well, it was bound to happen. The only album that was actually done in 5.1 was Aero. And even that was mostly reworked old material. And even that sounded pretty forced, in most cases the sounds were traveling around in a seemingly random fashion and the final product ended up sounding very "thin" because if you start distributing instruments across 5 channels whereas they were originally distributed across just 2 you get, um, shall we say gaps.

I'm not counting T&T 5.1 and Oxygene 2007 5.1 because they were (if I'm not mistaken) simple 5.1 up-mixes of the original stereo mix. Something that 5.1 systems can do on the fly.

I believe we are not getting them anymore, because
a) the mixing/mastering process is non-standard and cumbersome
b) the target audience is very limited and you still have to prepare a stereo mix for the majority

I'd much rather prefer to get a digital download of a "vinyl master" instead of a 5.1 mix :)

Yeah the 5.1 mixes weren't really that amazing, but that's just because they were done very lazily. Honestly after hearing some of Mike Oldfield his remixed albums I can't stand it was just dropped altogether. Ommadawn in 5.1 is insane!

Come to think of it, the latter part of Oxygene 20 reminds me a lot of the last part of the title track from Pink Floyd's "A Saucerful of Secrets", which sort of can be interpreted as "a requiem for Syd" (AFAIK it wasn't really meant as one). So I guess O20 can work as a "requiem for Oxygene".

Part 17 is still rockin', at any rate. ;)

The making of:

Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene Trilogy Poster - White Duck Editions

Image

In 1976, Jean-Michel Jarre made the opening statement in his musical magnum opus with the release of the original Oxygene. 20 years on, he released the second part, Oxygene 7-13. Now, a further 20 years down the line, and a full 40 years since the release of the classic first album, Jarre has, with the release of Oxygene 3, completed the trilogy that will define his life’s work in music.

For the project’s artwork, Jarre revisited the classic skull artwork of the first album, originally created by Michel Granger. Jarre reworked the skull into a 3D model, and then captured it from new angles to give it a fresh sense of purpose. Of the skull, Jarre notes:
“The cover artwork became famous, like an ecological warning signal, dark and surreal, evoking both outer space and that of our vital living space: this image, for me, has become inseparable from the music.”

To coincide with the release of Oxygene 3 and the completion of the trilogy, White Duck was enlisted to produce the worldwide edition of this iconic skull poster.
Screen printed with metallic silver and gold ink, onto 270gsm ebony black stock, and in an edition of 400, the poster has a lustrous, timeless feel.

The poster is available from Jean-Michel Jarre’s own online shop: https://jean-michel-jarre-eu.myshopify. ... ned-poster
