In 1981, just after the release of his third album, Champs magnétiques (which followed the success of Oxygène and Equinoxe), Jean-Michel Jarre managed to bag a hard-earned Chinese tour. It was the first time a Western artist had toured China under the communist regime, five years after Mao’s death. He would perform five shows at the end of October at the Beijing Sports Palace and the Shanghai Stadium alongside keyboardist Dominique Perrier and drummer Roger Rizzitelli. They were also joined by sound engineer Frédérick Rousseau, which gave the tour a slightly rocky edge. The band played hits like ‘Equinoxe, Pt. 4’ and ‘Chants magnétiques, Pt. 2’ for their curious Chinese audience, but they also included songs composed for the occasion such as ‘Orient Express’, ‘Nuit à Shanghai’, ‘Jonques de pêcheurs au crépuscule’ and ‘Souvenir de Chine’. The latter closes this stunning double album, newly remastered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this historic tour. And who can forget the laser harp? A science-fictional instrument created by Bernard Szajner and played for the first time in China. Jarre described this tour as ‘an encounter of the third kind’. It was, without doubt, an encounter that won over the audience, whose vigorous applause can be heard on this historic recording. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

Laurent Garnier, the fight for techno

As he recently celebrated the 30th year of his career in October 2017 at the Rex Club in Paris, Qobuz seized this opportunity to dive into the musical journey of Laurent Garnier, a pioneer of the French electronic scene who spent three decades fighting for the recognition of a music genre that had been ostracized by the media and institutions. Let’s take a look at this uphill battle for techno.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

Qobuz looks back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.
