The sale raised about 70, francsand in protest at the "silly industrialisation of music", [13] Jarre promised to burn the original tapes in the presence of a bailiff. Zoolook features snippets of words and speech from languages across the globe.

A long list of musicians, including Adrian Belew and Marcus Milleralso made significant contributions. I've always been involved in ethnic music, though I thought the way a lot of people have been using ethnic music was a little superficial.

Sometimes it works, like the Brian Eno stuff, it worked the first time, but for me what was more interesting was not making a particular statement about recording in Africa or in China, but taking some sounds and having exactly the same attitude as when you were in front of a Moog 55 or a modular system, replacing the oscillators with a bank of actors or people, treating them through the Fairlight or the EMS synth, and establishing an orchestration using only voices.

InJarre was invited by the musical director of the Houston Grand Opera to perform a concert celebrating Texas 's th anniversary on 5 April Although he was busy with other projects and was at first unimpressed by the proposal, on a later visit to the city, he was immediately impressed by the visual grandeur of the city's skyline and agreed to perform. Also, marked the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the Lyndon B.

Consideration was given to the cancellation of the concert; but McCandless contacted Jarre and urged him to proceed, in memory of the shuttle's crew. I remember just before take-off, Ron calling me in Paris saying "Everything's ready, see you in a week's time, watch me on television for the take-off" I will really, keep always, the bit of Ron's smile and Ron's face in my heart.

About 2, projectors shone images onto buildings and giant screens up to 1, feet m high, transforming the city's skyscrapers into spectacular backdrops for an elaborate display of fireworks and lasers. The display was so impressive that a nearby freeway was blocked by passing vehicles, forcing the authorities to close it for the duration of the concert.

In Jarre released Revolutions. The album spans several genres, including symphonic industrial, Arabian inspired, light guitar pop and ethnic electro jazz. Early in Jarre met with local officials and members of the community, [48] but Newham Borough Council expressed their fears about the event's safety and delayed their decision on whether to allow the concert to proceed until 12 September [47] eventually rejecting the licence Equinoxe Part 7 - Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe (CD.

The local fire service were also concerned about access in the event of a fire. Site work continued as Jarre's team searched for alternative locations in which to stage the concert, but following improvements to both on and off-site safety Jarre eventually won conditional approval on 28 September to stage two separate performances, on 8 and 9 October.

The floating stage on which Jarre and his musicians performed was built on top of four large barges. Large purpose-built display screens were built, and one of the buildings to be used as a backdrop was painted white. One large mirror ball being transported to the event fell onto the roadside, causing a degree of confusion as some people mistook it for a fallen satellite. World War II searchlights were installed, to illuminate the sky and surrounding architecture.

Inclement weather had threatened to break the stage from its moorings, putting paid to the original plan to float the stage across the Royal Victoria Dock. Wind speeds were so high that television cameras Album) blown over. On the second evening the audience, which included Diana, Princess of Wales[46] was soaked by rain and wind. However, with only weeks to go, important equipment had not arrived and the sinking in the Atlantic Ocean of a cargo ship containing the purpose-built pyramidal stage and other technical and financial problems made staging the concert impossible.

Jarre's disappointment was such that he "could not cope with Mexican food for two years". About two years later he released Chronologiean album influenced by the techno-music scene.

In a sense, Chronologie is a kind of mixture between the sounds of the '70s and the sounds of the '90s. Chronologie was performed at a series of 16 performances across Europe called Europe in Concert. These were on a Equinoxe Part 7 - Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe (CD scale than his previous concerts, featuring a miniature skyline, laser imaging and fireworks.

The Eiffel Tower was specially lit for the occasion, prompting the installation of a more permanent display. The excitement of being able to work on sounds in a tactile, manual, almost sensual way is what drew me to electronic music in the first place The lack of limitations is very dangerous. It is like the difference for a painter of getting four tubes with four main colours or being in front of a computer with two million colours. You have to scan the two million colours and when you arrive to the last one you have obviously forgotten the first one.

In the Eighties we became archivists and everything became rather cold as a result. In September that year he set his fourth record for the largest-ever outdoor-concert audience with a performance at the Moscow State Universitycelebrating the th anniversary of Moscow.

Sound effects used include radio interference from mobile phones, and Macintalk, a Macintosh program used to generate lyrics on the track "Love, Love, Love".

I had to go somewhere completely different. Metamorphoses is like a blank page for me, a new beginning. The same year he composed, with Francis Rimbert arrangements, the music for the short-lived French channel Match TV, and contributed music to the soundtrack of the film Who wants to be a Star. In he released Sessionsa set of experimental synth-jazz pieces distinct from his previous work.

Sessions was well received by Billboard Magazinewhich said "He's created a deeply nuanced soundscape that invites repeated listening. Room' nightclub in France. It contains a mix of 'electro-chill' music, with touches of his more traditional style.
