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.

Another new album by Jean Michel Jarre

They are all things we've already heard from the FranceInfo TV channel (at least, I 've heard them on that channel). Nothing in the previews give me the impression they're from the CD. In September, they re-recorded stuff with orchestra for this release, I can't hear any orchestra in the samples. So I'm a bit sceptical, but we'll know this Friday for sure.

This seems like more or less a full length track, could it have been just recorded off TV? Anyway I haven't heard this particular music yet.

Also, I didn't know there was a "re-record", although I recall something about orchestra being involved, but I thought it was just recorded like this from the beginning.
Because it's not a 'proper' album, per-se?
"Proper" or not, it's still a release containing music by JMJ, pretty sure a decent amount of people would be interested in it?

I think the preview 1 has some strings ...but for the whole album I think it will be a mixture on it. (The original recordings by Jarre and the later Modifications ) :wink:

Yeah but when has his record label ever done anything helpful?

Not sure what you are getting at, Electronica had excellent promotion, Oxygene 3 promotion was pretty decent, Radiophonie promotion is non-existent.

The bol.com page has been updated with a 'product description' but don't know how accurate it is!

De zender France Info bestaat sinds 1987. Het is een publieke nieuwszender. In 2016 lanceerde France Info een project van een nieuwe openbare service-informatie televisiezender. En het is Jean-Michel Jarre die werd gekozen om nieuwe muziek (jingles) te componeren voor France Info (radio en TV). Hexagone 1-99 is het voorbeeld van de nieuwe visuele en auditieve identiteit.

99 new Jarre tracks this year already! I think that's a record for him. ;-)

I've got the CD. And yes, it's got 99 tracks. Some are 9 seconds, some 10, some 2 or 3 minutes.

It's all small bumper tracks you can expect from a radio and tv channel. Some are extensive background tracks. Most are variations on one theme, the main theme of Franceinfo.

It's got a lot of ringtone material.

That sounds really good! I hope I'll be able to purchase it in a few weeks along with Return to Ommadawn!

Received "Radiophonie Vol.9" today. Most of the 99 tracks sound more or less the same (although vary in length), but there are some gems between them. For me the most interesting track is "Hexagone 61" which has the feeling of Jarre's pre-Oxygene(1) work. Nice!

My tip for listening to Radiophonie is to put all tracks into playlist and sort them by duration in DESCENDING order (longer goes first)!

Of the 99 tracks spanning 62 minutes there are a small handful of lengthy tracks, a few gems too. But the 80+ you could class as Jarre Alert Tones for your mobile devices. I am sure someone could have a field day taking all the segments and making one or two mixes. Certainly repetitive, but that is the point, and so its more a fan collectible as apposed to your standard album. Must be the largest amount of same name tracks with Jarre's name to it - HEXAGON 1 - 99

Haven't come across this CD anywhere and ordering will potentially take days to, if not, weeks. Really want to listen to this, but availability is a mess sadly :(
