MKL discover the concept behind the synth legend’s new album
Famed for his stunning live concerts and the multi-million selling album Oxygène of 1976, French composer and electronic pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre is still going strong. Having studied music in the ’50s, Jarre has a unique and fascinating insight into the unfolding history of electronic music, and has continued that legacy of experimentation throughout a career spanning five decades.
This year, Jarre reveals a huge project that sees him join forces with an army of collaborators whose own forays into electronic music have played an inspiring role. The first album, Electronica 1: The Time Machine, is released this autumn, with a second volume to follow in April 2016. Meanwhile, Jarre has plans to take it to the road for another live spectacular.
