Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

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.

Talking about Igor Wakhevich, I've just read an interesting interview where he talks about JMJ and their friendship in the GRM era...

Wow, what a brilliant anekdote!
After few months plunged in this strange ambiance, Jean-Michel and myself decided together to leave the G.R.M. at the same moment in order to imprint our mark on the minds. Making a last scandal, we slammed the door using for that our best oscillator-generator’s envelop without any filter and any delay. But a big big big reverberation at 100%. A monumental electronic fart that you can find in the INA and GRM archives. “Jarre-Wakhévitch” are the coauthors of a “plug-in” known as “Wakhévitch-Jarre’s scandalous behavior”. We earned a lot of money with our plug-in; we still share the royalties of our tonitruant departure from the G.R.M.
and... is he indicating that he and JMJ were lovers??

Funny how amidst the long paragraphs of philosophy there's:
Is there any unreleased material?

I.W.: Yes.

Just read that long interview. I'm quite familiar with what he is saying, much of the "cosmic" or "out there" cosmology and spiritual philosophy he is espousing as "the ultimate truth" is actually of Satanic origin. (Even though he immediately makes sure to tell you in his answer that he doesn't worship Satan.) The exact same concepts and teachings about reality are taught in various schools of Satanism and occultism. The new age movement and Eastern religions also teach the same false concepts, because they all come from the same source. The usual result of study of these deceptive doctrines is that individuals begin to perceive themselves as highly enlightened/evolved in comparison to everyone else, they believe they are in tune with the so-called "real" truth which is hidden from everyone, but what they are really in tune with, is real evil - masquerading as good. In these vast false teachings, all kinds of concepts are thrown about, with snippets of vague truth intertwined with unverifiable information and outright lies/deceptions. As all Satanic knowledge: it is meant to shock you into awe and acceptance, so that you ask for more. It's all about converting/changing you gradually. Making you believe it's a path of self-development, beneficial in every way, yet it's precisely the opposite of that: the path to self-destruction.

Anyhow, that explains the guy's weird nature and outlook. It's quite sad seeing what human beings do to themselves, going down these paths. This guy's just one amongst millions.
Without faith nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

Speaking of AOR, I remember when Jarre.net had some excerpts of it available for download. And I still remember this one (at 3:56) the best due to thinking "You know, that really sounds like one of the Ethnicolor samples".

(Well, it still does... and probably is?)

But now, roughly 15 years later, it got me thinking of how crisp and clean those Jarre.net AOR recordings sound. In fact, the AOR track performed at Bourges in 2002 also sounded quite slick (now, if I remembered anything about the synths he used in that performance, maybe it was just "easy" to be recreated or some such).

So... what do you people think, did JMJ re-create (all) AOR tracks for the Jarre.net downloads or did he use the original recordings?

Those were the original recordings. They got those snippets from JMJ.

Bumping an old topic: French newspaper Le Monde have an archive now. Archives are cool. Their review of the AOR ballet is there too:
https://www.lemonde.fr/archives/article ... 19218.html
47% of the article is readable, the rest is for subscribers :-(
Here [the Paris Opera] is enriched with a creation called "Aor", entrusted to Norbert Schmucki, a child of the house (he left it barely a year ago to go to Zurich to support Michel Descombey). This boy with the fine mustache, with long hair, who made a lot of talk about him at the last festival in Avignon, offers us here, on the immense stage of the Opera, a sumptuous, completed work of a richness, of an unsuspected rigor, an outburst. How will the subscribers, the "old" ones, react to the stridencies, to the "spatialized" dullness by Igor Wakhévitch and Jean-Michel Jarre (Maurice's son)? One may ask. The "modern", the young, will surely see the opportunity to venture out, often for the first time, to the henhouse of our venerable academy.
There the article stops though :-(

Still waiting for the day more gets released rather than just the short pieces and AOR Blue.
Doubt it's anything great, but it's been such an interesting piece of obscure stuff I want to hear.
