At the invitation of the Paris City Hall, which had given up the fireworks display because of the curfew due to the Covid, Jean-Michel Jarre took us into the New Year with a live-stream trailblazing concert-spectacular set in the virtual environment of the planetary landmark Notre-Dame de Paris. The live show combined life-like concert visuals in VR with a real live studio performance from Studio Gabriel near the cathedral, while his avatar played inside a virtual Notre-Dame which had been entirely digitised before the fire in April 2019. The groundbreaking production left 75 Million viewers and virtual partygoers from around the world wondering which parts were real, and which were virtual. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) made the event available to their national TV and radio partners around the world free of charge. For ‘Welcome to the Other Side’ Jarre’s visionary creativity partnered with the French start up VRrOOm, the City of Paris and under the patronage of UNESCO – becoming the official midnight image and countdown from Paris. Created, designed and produced in record-breaking 3-months, the 50 minute mixed-media project gathered a team of 150 technicians to recreate Notre-Dame de Paris and achieve a masterpiece blending an array of formats and skills. Jean-Michel Jarre conceived it "both as a message of hope for 2021 in the difficult times we are going through, but also as an opportunity to pay homage to Notre-Dame de Paris weakened like all of us". This concert, featuring tracks from Jarre’s most recent album Electronica, as well as new reworked versions of his classics, Oxygène and Equinoxe, gave the world a virtual inside look at the legendary landmark in a futuristic and festive way. This spectacular event is a milestone today in setting new standards for music entertainment tomorrow. " Virtual reality is a little bit today to the live show what cinema was to its creation for the theatre", Jean-Michel Jarre confided during the rehearsals.

Planet Jarre is a compilation album by French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre, released on 14 September 2018  to commemorate Jarre's 50 years in the music business. A total of forty-one tracks were chosen by Jarre himself for inclusion, among them two new songs (Herbalizer and Coachella Opening). Jarre remastered, and in some cases "retouched", the tracks himself. During the process, he decided that he had pursued four quite different styles of composition and therefore divided the project into four "universes" - "Soundscapes", "Themes", "Sequences" and "Explorations and Early Works”.

What a long way for the pioneer of French electronic music since his departure from the GRM of Pierre Schaeffer – the father of musique concrète et électroacoustique (concrete and electroacoustic music) – where he spent two years (from 1969 to 1971) that turned out to be decisive for the remainder of his career. After fifty years of introducing an entire generation to electronic music and becoming the most famous French artist outside of his borders, Jean-Michel Jarre is revisiting his abundant discography with this Planet Jarre compilation that gathers 41 tracks divided into four parts.The first album features, like its title Soundscapes suggests, musical landscapes, contemplative tracks bordering with ambient music, including the melancholic The Heart of Noise (The Origin) as well as two extracts from Oxygène 3 from 2016, Parts 19 and 20. On the second, named Themes, Jarre compiled his most “catchy” songs, produced for the most part in the seventies and eighties (except for Bells and Chronology, Pt. 4), with the famous Oxygène, Part. 4, the Moroderian Equinoxe Part 5, and the iconic Fourth Rendez-vous. The third record, Séquences, focuses on more “hypnotic” titles, like Arpegiateur from 1982 and the psytrance Exit, composed with Edward Snowden in 2016, as well as the dance-floor bomb Oxygène 8, from the 1997 album Oxygène 7-13.This Séquences is reinforced with two previously unreleased tracks, Herbalizer and Opening Coachella, recorded during the Frenchman’s performance at the prestigious Californian festival. Finally, disc number 4, Explorations & Early Works, might be the most interesting of the batch, first of all because it features two minutes of Music for Supermarkets, his single-copy album released in 1983. Worth noting is the nerve-shredding Roseland (Le Pays de rose) he wrote for the film The Burned Barns in 1973 (featuring Delon and Signoret), and most importantly La Cage, a track composed in 1969 at the GRM with a musical saw, a rattle, a wooden spoon and a synthesiser (with Erosmachine on the B side with spring noises). Two tracks from another world sold in only 117 copies (!) that help us truly grasp how far Jarre has come… © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

The title gave us fair warning, but the world wasn't ready. In the year 2000, three years after he gave us a follow-up to his masterpiece Oxygène, Jean-Michel Jarre, now basking in the glory of a gigantic concert in Moscow's Red Square, brought out Métamorphose, which stunned fans because it contained vocals! The record opens with a collaboration with American singer Laurie Anderson, Je me souviens, over an Eighties electro instrumental, before Natacha Atlas comes in for the next piece. On C’est la vie, the diva of Transglobal Underground does what she does best, with her Near-Eastern vocal sallies, which producer Joachim Garraud, matches with percussion from the same climes, and trancey beats and keyboards with a slightly kitsch effect. Next up, Rendez-vous à Paris, in the hypnotic voice of Jarre himself, filtered through a vocoder against a glitchy, aquatic background, and accompanied by the Irish violinist Sharon Corr of the Corrs; Bells, one of the only completely instrumental tracks, while Tout est bleu and its techno beat marks a little departure from good taste. Despite a fine cast list, the record, which would not win the expected commercial success, was simply not understood by Jean-Michel Jarre's hardcore fans. Twenty years on, perhaps they'll give it another chance. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

It was the early 2000 and downtempo and acid jazz were being smothered by the rise of French Touch house. But they found an escape route when lounge music flared into life, with its 90 BPM tempos, played at cool hangouts like the Mezzanine de l'Alcazar in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Buddha Bar or the Costes hotel, all of which have brought out compilations in their own names. Although the movement wasn't quite a musical revolution, radio programmers took advantage of it to soften their playlists, and lounge invaded the bars and restaurants of Paris (soon to be replaced by Deep House, which was then languishing in a very deep basement indeed).It was in this context that the VIP Room discos, led by Jean Roch, commissioned Jean-Michel Jarre to produce this album of lounge music, which originally ran to only 2,000 CDs, and which is a part of the salvo of re-releases that the star French publisher is putting out in 2018. For this stylistic exercise, Jarre gives us a 40-minute demonstration of his mastery of the genre's codes – something he's not always managed to do with other styles – and offers up eight tracks of sensuality (an aspect emphasised by the title and the sleeve image of the pixellated pubis of his then-girlfriend, Isabelle Adjani), with Geometry of Love pt 1 as the climax, and some mystical moments (the Minimoog on Soul Intrusion), and others that approach ambient (Skin Paradox). While the record only offers a patchy discography of Jarre, it is nonetheless of great interest for his hardest-core fans, and it is a worthy testament to a certain era. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
