Jean-Michel Jarre reveals “A Question Of Blood” collaboration with John Carpenter - August 2015
French electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre forthcoming album “E-Project” is set for release 16th October. The album features 16 different collaborators, including the so far revealed Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode), M83, Tangerine Dream, Gesaffelstein, 3D from Massive Attack, Armin Van Buuren, and more.
“A Question Of Blood” is the newly revealed collaborative effort featuring John Howard Carpenter, an American film director, screenwriter, producer, editor and composer. Although Carpenter has worked in numerous film genres, he is most commonly associated with horror and science fiction films from the 1970s and 1980s.
Jarre tells Bloody-Disgusting:
John brought his instinct characteristic style on the track, by adding one layer of melody, and also some layers of pads and kind of scratching sound, by listening to the track when he send back the result to me, I was instantly in one of the future scene of the next John Carpenter movie. What I feel is I feel the instant and definite John Carpenter’s stamp on it.
His first album in over eight years “E-Project” was conceived with Jarre’s wish to encompass the last few decades of electronic music with the participation of outstanding artists of all generations with whom Jarre feels especially connected with by a common DNA.
“I’ve wanted to tell a story for a while regarding electronic music history from my point of view and experience, from when I started to nowadays,” Jarre says. “So I planned to collaborate with array of artists who are, directly or indirectly, linked to this scene, over the last four decades I’ve been making electronic music. With people I admire for their singular contribution to our genre, that represent a source of inspiration for me but who also have an instantly recognizable sound. At the outset, I had no idea how this project would evolve, but I was delighted that everybody I reached out to accepted my invitation”. Jean-Michel Jarre
Original demos were composed & produced by Jarre specifically for each artist, and they in turn were invited to bring their unique spirit and signature to the recording, while he then completed the project.
