Jean Michel Jarre From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Jean-Michel Jarre Background information Born August 24, 1948 (1948-08-24) (age 59) Origin Lyon, France Genre(s) Electronic music Instrumental music New Age Ambient Occupation(s) Composer, Musician, Artist, Producer Instrument(s) Synthesizer, keyboard Years active c. 1971。Vpresent Label(s) Disques Dreyfus Polydor Sony Music Warner Bros. Records EMI Website Jean-Michel Andre Jarre (born 24 August 1948, Lyon) is a French composer, performer and music producer. He is regarded as a pioneer in the electronic, synthpop and New Age, as well as organiser of outdoor spectacles of his music which feature lights, laser displays and fireworks. Jarre has sold an estimated 80 million albums and singles.[1] Contents [hide] 1 Musical career 1.1 Musical upbringing 1.2 Early years 1.3 The Dreyfus years 1.4 Metamorphoses 1.5 The AERO years 1.6 Back To Roots 1.6.1 Legal problems 2 Personal life 3 Awards and recognition 4 Discography 5 Chart positions 6 Concerts 6.1 Major spectacles 6.2 Other performances 7 Notable instruments 8 See also 9 References 10 External links [edit] Musical career [edit] Musical upbringing Jarre was born in Lyon on August 24, 1948, the son of Maurice Jarre, a composer of film music, and France Pejot, a member of the French resistance during World War II. His grandfather, Andre Jarre, was one of the inventors of the first audio mixing consoles used by Radio Lyon[2], and he was also involved, after World War II, with one of the first portable phonographs (the Tepazz) [2], which he gave to his grandson as a present. When Jean Michel was five, his father departed for Hollywood, and Jarre would not have much contact with him from then on [3]. It was at this time that Jarre began studying classical piano. His interest in music was not yet passionate, and he had to change piano teachers several times. It was only when he discovered a strange trumpet or violin instrument in a local flea market that his interest took off.[4] On his tenth birthday, his mother took him to a Paris jazz club, "Le chat qui peche" (The Fishing Cat), where he was introduced to saxophonists Archie Shepp and John Coltrane, and trumpet players Don Cherry and Chet Baker. Jarre stated in the 1997 documentary, Making The Steamroller Fly that this event triggered his passion for music. Jarre started courses in harmony and counterpoint at the Conservatoire of Paris under Jeanine Rueff. He was studying for a degree in law and economic science at the same time. Eventually he quit the classical studies and turned to modern music theory. [edit] Early years In 1964, he formed a band called Mystere IV ("Mystery 4"). He spent so much time in the group that his mother confiscated his instruments. In 1967 Jarre played guitar in the band "The Dustbins".[3] They played the hits of The Shadows and The Spotnicks. The group appeared on stage in a party scene in the movie "Des garcons et des filles", the soundtrack for which featured two of the band's songs. A single was released, but only ten copies were made. In 1968, he started experimenting with tape loops, radios and other electronic devices, and in January 1969, he joined the Groupe de Recherche Musicale (GRM), under the direction of Pierre Schaeffer, the "father" of musique concrete. Here he was introduced to the first synthesizers in Europe: the EMS VCS 3 and the Moog modular synthesizer. In GRM, Jarre was taught to think about music in terms of sounds instead of notes, and this had a huge influence upon him. He also studied foreign musics (African, Indian, Chinese and other oriental music) from which he learned a lot. For a period of two-three months, Jarre studied with Karlheinz Stockhausen in Cologne.[5] In his GRM period, Jarre had his own flat in Paris at rue de la Tremoille, not far from the Champs-Elysees, and it was here that he was able set up his first studio in a converted kitchen: an EMS VCS 3 and EMS Synthi AKS [4] synthesizer, and two linked Revox tape machines. To fund the studio's equipment and himself he painted pictures which he sold locally. For an exposition at the "Maison De Culture" (Cultural House) in Reims he wrote a five minute song called "Happiness is a sad song" (unreleased). Jarre released his first solo single "La Cage/Erosmachine" in (1971), but it was a failure. This was likely due to its experimental or futuristic sound. Only 117 singles were sold, and Pathe Marconi destroyed the remaining stock.[6] Jarre became the youngest composer to see one of his works played at the Paris Opera, at its reopening in 1971. It was the first time that electronic music had been allowed to be used, and Jarre even had to paint his speakers gold to match the decor of the opera house. There he performed with the Paris Opera Ballet and choreographer Norbert Schmucki. He created the first electro-acoustic opera called "AOR". This music is still unreleased as of 2008, with the exception of AOR Bleu, which was released on Live Printemps de Bourges 2002. Jarre composed the music for two additional operas: Le Labyrinthe (1972) and Dorian Gray (1973). He also wrote music for commercials and started to collaborate with artists like Dominique Webb, Samuel Hobo, Bill and Buster, Blue Vamp, and the group Triangle. Jarre also wrote lyrics for artists like Patrick Juvet and Christophe. In 1972, Jarre added a modified Farfisa organ and an ARP 2600 to his collection. He released several singles under aliases: 1906 - Cartolina/Helza, Jamie Jefferson - Black Bird/ Pop Corn. One of his first successes, the song Zig Zag Dance, was released in numerous guises, under various aliases, and differing slightly each time. His first solo album Deserted Palace (Sam Fox Productions/Dreyfus Records) was released at this time. Jarre composed the soundtrack for the film Les Granges Brulees (Dreyfus Records, not released on CD until 2003) in the following year. In 1974 he met Michel Geiss, an electronics wizard and musician. A friendship was struck between them that has lasted ever since. In 1975, Jarre wrote some music and lyrics for Francoise Hardy and Gerard Lenorman. Two of these songs were later to be re-used: La belle et la bete (which later became the basis for "Rendez-vous 2"), and La mort du cygne (which eventually evolved into "Rendez-vous 3"). He also acted as director for Christophe's Olympiashow that year, which featured a flying piano. [edit] The Dreyfus years In 1976 Jarre secured a recording contract with Polydor, signed thanks to Michael Hoppe (after the initial first release on Disques Motors) with his first major multi-million selling album, Oxygene (although it wasn't until 1977 when the album was released internationally after the initial release in France that Oxygene became world renowned). Oxygene is considered by some to be the most important and influential electronic music album ever. Contrasted with his contemporaries, such as the rather clinical, hard, futuristic sound of Kraftwerk, or the more 'cosmic' and murky Tangerine Dream, Oxygene had a lush, spacey and strongly melodic sound reminiscent of the sound of Wendy Carlos on the soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange released a few years earlier, and was a big commercial success worldwide. The track "Oxygene Part IV" was released as a single and became one of the best-known pieces of electronic music ever. Key components of Jarre's sound included his use of the Dutch organ Eminent (strings), Electroharmonix Small Stone phaser on the Eminent's string pads, and liberal use of echo on various sound effects generated by the VCS3 synthesizer. He also manipulated a Korg Minipops drum machine to create totally unique rhythms and drum sounds. In 1978, his second album Equinoxe was released. Jarre developed his sound, employing more dynamic and rhythmic elements, particularly a greater use of sequencing on basslines. Much of this was achieved using custom equipment developed by his collaborator Michel Geiss. A concert on the Place de la Concorde in Paris in 1979 followed the release. This concert attracted one million people, which was Jarre's first entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the largest crowd at an outdoor concert. In October 1981, Jarre was the first Western pop-artist to be invited to give concerts in the People's Republic of China. These concerts were the first to feature the Laser harp, one of Jarre's signature electronic instruments. Also during this year, Les Chants Magnetiques (Magnetic Fields - note that the French title is a pun - the literal translations of Magnetic Fields is "Champs Magnetiques", "Chants" meaning "songs") was released to much acclaim, and was followed by the release of Les Concerts En Chine (The Concerts in China) album in 1982 and is marked as his first live album release, comprising of recordings from his tour of China during 1981. The sounds of the Magnetic Fields album are primarily based in the Fairlight CMI synthesizer, and the album was a huge leap forward in both technical complexity and fidelity. In 1983, he created the album Musique pour Supermarche (Music for Supermarkets), which had a print run of one single copy. The music was intended to play at the "Supermarche" art exhibition, with Jarre suggesting that, as each artwork would be auctioned after the exhibition, so too should the music in the same way. Jarre destroyed all the master records from his studio work, allowed a radio station (Radio Luxembourg) to broadcast the album once and auctioned it, raising 「G10,000 for French artists. People recorded the album using their tape recorders while it was broadcast on the radio, so they can listen to that album, at a very poor quality though (the radio station was an AM station). Despite claiming to have destroyed all recordings of the album, songs from this album were later reworked into future albums in almost identical form. In 1984, Zoolook was released, relying heavily on the sampler capabilities of the Fairlight CMI (which Jarre had been using, albeit on a smaller role, since Magnetic Fields). The album featured many different words and speech, recorded in different languages around the world, to create different sounds and effects. Laurie Anderson provided the vocals for the track "Diva". With its rock music underpinnings, Zoolook resides nicely[citation needed] amongst a mere handful of pop and rock albums (notably Kate Bush's 1982 album The Dreaming, Yello's 1985 Stella, 1984's Who's Afraid of the Art of Noise? by Art of Noise, 1982's Naked Eyes by Naked Eyes, and 1985's How To Be a Zillionaire by ABC) that made intensive and sometimes exhaustive use of the Fairlight. It is perhaps too easy to overlook the lengthy list of live (and much-sought) musicians that also made contributions to Zoolook, giving the album a cinematic scope and breadth, courtesy of Mark A. Fuller. Jarre recorded the album Rendez-Vous after being inspired by the sounds of the Elka synthesizer, which he employed on the record liberally. It also features his first heavy use of the Moog synthesizer on a studio album. In 1986, NASA and the city of Houston asked him to do a concert to celebrate NASA's 25th anniversary and the city of Houston's 150th anniversary. During that concert, astronaut Ronald McNair was to play the saxophone part of Jarre's piece "Rendez-Vous VI" while in orbit on board the Space Shuttle Challenger. It was to have been the first piece of music recorded in space, for the album. After the Challenger disaster of January 28, 1986 which killed McNair, the piece was recorded with a different saxophonist, retitled "Ron's piece" and the album dedicated to the seven Challenger astronauts. The Houston concert entered the Guinness Book of Records for the audience of over 1.5 million[citation needed]. During the concert, Houston native Kirk Whalum performed Ron McNair's saxophone part on "Ron's Piece". The concert featured giant projections of photographic images and laser patterns onto the buildings of downtown Houston, including a gigantic white screen on the front face of the Texaco Heritage Plaza building, which was under construction at the time. Due to vehicles stopping on the freeway passing the concert venue the freeways had to be closed down for the duration of the concert. Later in 1986, Jarre performed in his birth city of Lyon as part of the celebrations for Pope John Paul II's visit to the city. The Pope was in attendance and introduced the concert with a good-night blessing (a recording of which forms part of the album Cities In Concert - Houston/Lyon). In 1988 the album Revolutions was released. Jarre, along with guests such as Hank Marvin, the legendary guitarist from The Shadows, performed this album and selected highlights from his discography at an event entitled Destination Docklands in front of 200,000 people[citation needed] (not including the thousands of observers who witnessed the event from outside the official concert gates) in two concerts on October 8 and October 9 1988. The event utilized the industrial backdrop of London's Royal Victoria Dock in the East End. The original show was supposed to be scheduled as a one off on the 24 September 1988, but due to safety issues with both Newham local council and London Fire brigade the license was turned down for the larger event. After Jarre's crews failing to maintain crowd safety, and after several vigorous meetings and negotiations (and Jarre potentially looking for other sites including Tilbury docks and Edinburgh castle to host the event), the application for the license was finally granted, but for two smaller audience capacity shows. Although the shows went ahead, they were not without hiccups. Bad weather had threatened to break Jarre's "Battleship" floating stage from its moorings, risking safety to the crew and also musicians and choirists. Although the original plan was to have Jarre float across the Royal docks it was deemed too unsafe due to the weather and hence was chained to the dockside. Despite this the concerts were well received, although the audience was soaked due to pouring rain and biting winds, but it was deemed a success and many of the British public attending will recall it as a very special and unique experience, including Diana, Princess of Wales who attended the concert and became a friend and fan of Jarre's music over his career. One aspect of the show was during the transportation of several large mirror balls (some 4m diameter), which Jarre had commissioned for the show to be hung from the large dockside cranes. Whilst en route to the docks, one of the lorries had lost one of the balls on the roadside. On the same night a satellite was due to enter the Earth's atmosphere from space. A member of the public reported the sighting of a sphere like spacecraft rolling on the road, and hence caused major panic as police feared it was the satellite. On July 14, 1990 Jarre broke his own record in the Guinness Book of Records again with a concert at La Defense, Paris where 2.5 million[citation needed] people watched Jarre light up the Parisian business district. The album En Attendant Cousteau (Waiting for Cousteau) was also released in this year, and was dedicated to the French sea explorer, Jacques Cousteau. During early 1991, Jarre started promotion for a concert to take place in the Pyramids of Teotihuacan, Mexico during the great solar eclipse of July 11, 1991. Some sources mention problems with several sponsors and local authorities as the reasons that halted the project.[7] However, in the documentary Making the Steamroller Fly included in the Oxygene Moscow DVD, Jarre and other collaborators mention that the concert was cancelled due to the fact that one cargo ship containing a specially built, pyramidal stage and other technical equipment sunk during the trip to Mexico, making it impossible for the crew to replace it in time for the concert. Jarre says that his disappointment was such that "he could not cope with Mexican food for two years". In 1993, Jarre released his first work to be largely influenced by the techno-music scene that had been developing since about 1989. Entitled Chronologie, the album was, from a technical standpoint, a revision to a concept employed by Jarre in his Oxygene/Equinoxe period, where a grandiose overture provides the emotional feel and sonic timbre for the rest of the following, more rhythmic pieces. This time, however, the tracks would feature newer state-of-the-art synthesizers, swooshing sampled clocks (fitting the theme of the album) and contemporary rhythms driving the tempo 。V a style that became threaded throughout most of the work that followed. In inspiring a generation of electronic musicians with his work from the 1970s and '80s, Jarre in turn found himself drawn to the trance genre which followed him in the '90s. He enlisted several artists of that generation, including Praga Khan, to remix tracks for the B sides of the singles. Jarre followed through the promotion of the Chronologie album with a tour, the first large scale tour Jarre had undertaken since the mini tour of China back in 1981. The tour entitled Europe In Concert was a series of concerts on a smaller scale than that of previous one-offs, but heavily featured a backdrop of makeshift skyscrapers and also skytrackers, laser imaging, and fireworks. This took Jarre across several European cities, including Lausanne, the Mont St Michel, London, Manchester, Barcelona and the Versailles Palace near Paris. Jarre did one final concert in Hong Kong in 1994, unfortunately due to laws, fireworks were omitted from the show. Jarre released a double live album of Hong Kong, which featured many of the same renditions of the Europe In Concert tracks, with some reworkings of the older album versions. However, to fans reminiscing for the subtle tonal quality and phased sounds of Jarre's early work, 1997 would not be a disappointing year. Oxygene 7。V13 was released to reveal that a coherent sonic story over the course of an album was something that Jarre could still achieve in the sequel-of-sorts to his 1976 landmark release. This album brought back the VCS 3 synthesizer, Eminent 310U, and Mellotron, among others. One can hear inspiration from "Oxygene (Part IV)" and "Equinoxe (Part II)" in the two-movement piece "Oxygene 7", while many of the other techno-based tracks on the album suggest a combination of Jarre's inspiration from both the Oxygene and Chronologie periods. "Oxygene 10" would also be the first piece composed by Jarre to feature him playing a theremin. Jarre once again toured Europe to support the album, this time focusing on smaller, indoor venues with a stripped down version of his large outdoor extravaganzas. Jarre visited several countries he had never played before. On September 6, 1997, Jarre played in Moscow to celebrate the 850th anniversary of the city. The Moscow State University was used as the backdrop for a spectacular display of image projections, skytrackers and fireworks, with an audience of 3.5 million. "Jarre breathes again with Oxygene". Retrieved on 2008-05-06. This was Jarre's fourth record and entry into the Guinness record book for the largest free concert audience ever. The concert was also the same day that the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales took place. Jarre spoke of his friendship with her and requested a moment of silence and then dedicated a song in her memory called "Souvenirs" (aka "Souvenir of China"). [edit] Metamorphoses This period was marked by big changes in Jarre's personal and professional life. Starting with his separation of his former wife, a dispute for unknown causes with his record label (Disques Dreyfus) and a change in his musical style. On 31 December 1999 Jarre held a spectacular music and light show in the Egyptian desert, near Giza. The show, called The 12 Dreams of the Sun, celebrated the new millennium and 5,000 years of civilization in Egypt. It also offered a preview of his new album, Metamorphoses. The concert which started on new years eve and followed all the way through to the dawn of the new millennium in a 12 hour spectacular which including many performances from local artists and musicians, the concert used the backdrop of the great pyramids to project images onto, but fog during the evening concert by Jarre caused the projections on the facades of the pyramids to be blocked from view. Jarre played for around two hours during the build up to the new millennium with a countdown at midnight and spectacular firework display and then returned on stage in the early morning to perform a second slot to see in the first sunrise of the new millennium. Jarre released Metamorphoses, his first fully-vocal album, in 2000. The compositions and their arrangement on this techno-based album co-produced with Joachim Garraud are extremely imaginative, and marked a departure from Jarre's previous style. He began integrating sound effects, including the radio interference from mobile phones (used on the track "Tout est Bleu") and also sampled his coffee making machine and also from Apple computers, including an implementation of Macintalk, a Macintosh program that allowed Jarre to have a computer generated voice speak his strange lyrics on the song "Love, Love, Love". Laurie Anderson made her second guest appearance in the Jarre discography on the opening track. The listener was also treated to collaborations with Natacha Atlas on vocals, and Sharon Corr of Irish pop group The Corrs on violin. Metamorphoses was not released in the USA until a couple of years later. In 2001 Jarre performed a concert in collaboration with Arthur C. Clarke and Tetsuya "TK" Komuro in the Okinawa beaches, to celebrate the "real" beginning of the new millennium. The concert was called Rendez-vous in Space and the short-lived group called itself The ViZitors. Later that year, Jarre played at the Acropolis in Greece a charity concert for the Elpida Foundation. [edit] The AERO years In 2002, Jarre performed a concert called AERO at Gammel Vra Enge wind farm, just outside Aalborg in Denmark, to a rather wet audience of approximately 50,000. AERO, a studio-album of mostly retooled Jarre classics, was later released in 2004 in combined DVD and CD forms. The DVD featured 5.1 sound, with DTS and Dolby Digital tracks. Jarre affirmed that this was the first musical work ever conceived for 5.1 sound. The video to accompany the musical tracks was a fixed very close-up shot of Anne Parillaud's eyes reacting in real time to the music. Inside the sleeve, the album also featured notes and a collection of various pictures and artwork of Jarre's fans from around the world. This concert marked a change in direction in Jarre's live concerts. Since Jarre's first large scale concerts in 1986, he had always been accompanied on stage by a full compliment of live musicians. This had included several fellow musicians on keyboard, live drums, live percussion, live bass guitar and live lead guitar. The live performances of these musicians truly made each live concert experience. For example the different musicians and styles employed by drummers Joe Hammer, Chris Deschamps, Laurent Fauchex and Gary Wallis over the years, made every concert and performance a unique one. The different eras in Jarre。ヲs live performances can be marked by the band of musicians he had on stage. The combination of Laurent Fauchex on drums, Dominic Perrier on percussion, Guy Delacroix on bass guitar and Patrick Rondat on lead guitar during the 1993-1995 live period is one such era defining compliment in Jarre。ヲs live performances. The live recordings of this period, including the video 'Europe in Concert' and the cd release 'Jarre in Hong Kong', could not be confused with another due to the performance of these talented musicans. However from Aero onwards Jarre was no longer accompanied on stage by a large number of musicians. His concerts from 2002 onwards only feature himself and 1 or 2 others in the main, with guest appearances or the compliment of an orchestra or choir on certain tracks. Gone were the live drums, percussion and bass and with it much of the 。・live。ヲ feel to the concerts. Many observe that many of the tracks from the Aero concert, along with the concert in China that followed in 2004, sound no different from the Aero album. It could be stated that from 2002 onwards Jarre。ヲs concerts became more of a 。・show。ヲ than a 。・live。ヲ concert. A good casing point of this can be seen in the 12 Dreams of the Sun concert on Millenium eve. This concert was one of Jarre。ヲs biggest spectacles and included many unique performances of Jarre tracks new and old. The employ of British drummer Gary Wallis and many local musicians gave the performance and a very unique feel and allowed the tracks to have the Egyptian feel required of the concert. The tracks performed on this night are all true live performances and do not simply reproduce exactly the sound on the original recordings. However the concert post 2002 lack this unique feel and often sound like pre-recorded re-mixes/versions of the original studio recordings. This has led some fans to morn the death of the Jarre concert as a truly live spectacle. 2002 would also mark the release of Sessions 2000, a set of experimental synth-jazz pieces that were stylistically distinct from anything Jarre had previously released. The work on this album is decidedly less rhythm-oriented than Jarre's previous work from Equinoxe on. It is also rumoured to have been a quick ditch effort album for Jarre to get out of his contractual terms with Francis Dreyfus. In 2003, Jarre released the album Geometry of Love for dance club VIP Lounge, in Paris, taking the 'inspired by the club generation' all the way. While Jarre's contemporary albums found themselves drawn to the pulsing rhythms of the dancefloor, Geometry of Love had its spiritual home in the chill-out room at the back, with lush, sprawling, sublime works washing over the listener. On October 10, 2004, Jarre performed two consecutive concerts, first in the Forbidden City, followed immediately by a smaller concert in Tiananmen Square in China, to commemorate open China。ヲs "Year of France" cultural exchange season. Choosing a picturesque location at Wumen Gate in the Forbidden City, Jarre performed with both modern and traditional Chinese orchestras, choir, opera singers, and several guest musicians including Chen Lin, and guitarist Patrick Rondat. Jarre was prevented from performing with China。ヲs Cui Jian whose songs were sung by student demonstrators in 1989. While it is the first section of the performance that is of historical significance (the Forbidden City being very much as its name suggests - the audience comprised of about 15,000 spectators, most of them special guests), the second half had a more muted stage arrangement, providing the closest Jarre had ever had to an 'after-gig' show - with an audience of 9,000 expectant Chinese. This concert was broadcast in HDTV with 5.1 sound by some satellite channels. 5.1 sound was also used on the stage. A combined DVD/CD of these concerts, Jarre In China was released in 2005 with THX-mastered sound. On August 26, 2005, Jarre performed a long-form concert called Space of Freedom in Gdansk, Poland to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Solidarity. Around 170,000 people attended the paid-entry concert. Lech Walesa was present on stage. On September 10, 2005 Jarre made a short-form concert at the LinX Live Show for the official opening of the Eurocam Media Centre, containing Belgian HDTV Company Euro1080s new HDTV Studios, in Lint, Belgium. In September, 2006 Tadlow Music released a special symphonic album, titled "The Symphonic Jean Michel Jarre" with 20 cover versions of Jarre tracks on 2 CDs. Jarre has supported this album, including his voice in one track. There is also a special limited 3-disc set with a bonus DVD containing 5.1 surround mixes of all the tracks. In his role of UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, Jarre performed a concert named Water for Life in the Sahara Desert, near Merzouga, Morocco on December 16, 2006, to celebrate the year of desertification in the world.[8][9] Jarre released a new original studio album, being his first real studio album since "Metamorphoses".[8][10] This new studio album, entitled "Teo & Tea", was released by Warner Bros. Records and iTunes on March 26 2007. Jarre has stated that this album comes after a dark period in his private and professional life.[11] However, this album can be considered a commercial failure. During 2006, Jarre was stated to produce an experimental TV series titled Mort-Mouvance, directed by Ellibert Mozart Fuzzkhan, who also produced a fake website of AeroProd, the company which produces Jarre's projects. The TV series and web sites turned out to be a hoax, and Jarre is pressing legal charges against the owners of those sites.[12][13] In 2007, Jarre arranged the soundtrack for a movie directed by Volker Schlondorff,[11] using old material. The movie is named Strajk - Die Heldin von Danzig,[14] its international English title is Strike.[15] [edit] Back To Roots In August 2007, Jarre switched record companies again, this time signing with EMI France. He released an anniversary package containing a special live recording of his classic work, Oxygene, in 3D DVD, live CD and normal 2D DVD formats in November 2007, named Oxygene: New Master Recording.[16] This is a first in Jarre's career, as it was played totally live, without tape or harddisk playback, by Francis Rimbert, Claude Samard, Dominique Perrier and Jarre himself.[17] Jarre has gone on to state he plans on integrating the original analog synthesizers from Oxygene for his next album and is building a new private recording studio on the outskirts of Paris.[18] Meanwhile, Jarre's former record company, Disques Dreyfus, has released another package, containing the original versions of Oxygene and Oxygene 7-13, plus a recopilatory of "unreleased" remixes of tracks from Oxygene 7-13. Jarre performed 10 concerts (Oxygene Live) in Paris, from December 12th 2007 to December 26th 2007. The concerts took place inside the Theatre Marigny, a small, 1000 seats theatre located in the Champs-Elysees. Later in 2008, Jarre performed several concerts to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Oxygene in theaters in Europe (see main article). After the Royal Albert Hall concert, Jarre met Brian May, who proposed him to create a concert in Tenerife for the UN Year of the Astronomy. An Israeli Internet Paper confirmed that a previously planned Large Outdoor Concert to take place this Summer in Jerusalem to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Israel has now been officially cancelled.[19]. The Oxygene IV piece has been used as part of the soundtrack for the popular videogame Grand Theft Auto 4.[20] [edit] Legal problems In 2008, The Mail on Sunday newspaper distributed more than 2 million copies of the Oxygene 30th Anniversary CD to its readers in the United Kingdom. Francis Dreyfus Music is starting legal actions against The Mail on Sunday and EMI, as FDM claims the CD does not come from a new re-recorded master, but from the original master the French label owns the rights to.[21] [edit] Personal life Jarre was married to Flore Guillard from 20 January 1975 until 1977.[22] Later he was married to British actress and photographer Charlotte Rampling from 7 October 1978 until 1998.

Figlio di Maurice Jarre, compositore di colonne sonore per il cinema, e France Pejot, Jean Michel Jarre e considerato uno dei pionieri della Musica elettronica e un innovatore per quanto riguarda l。ヲorganizzazione dei suoi concerti dal vivo, caratterizzati da giochi pirotecnici, raggi laser e da una spettacolare scenografia che fa da cornice alla sua musica eseguita spesso con strumenti futuristici, alcuni dei quali di sua ideazione.

Da adolescente formo un gruppo chiamato Mystere IV. Alla fine degli anni sessanta comincio a sperimentare dispositivi elettronici e a lavorare con i loop di nastro e, nel 1968, si uni al gruppo Groupe de Recherches Musicales di Pierre Schaeffer, considerato il padre della musica concreta, che avvicino Jarre all。ヲuso dei sintetizzatori. A meta degli anni settanta Jarre firmo un contratto discografico con la Polydor. Il suo primo album con la nuova etichetta, Oxygene (1976), e considerato il suo capolavoro. In contrasto con i lavori di contemporanei come i tedeschi Tangerine Dream, tra gli ideatori della Kosmische Musik, Oxygene e caratterizzato da suoni ampi e melodici avvolti dai phaser ed ebbe un grandissimo successo commerciale. La quarta traccia del disco, Oxygene Part IV, uscita come singolo di lancio, permane uno dei pezzi piu conosciuti della musica elettronica di tutti i tempi. Nel 1978 usci il suo secondo album: Equinoxe. In Equinoxe Jarre sviluppo i suoi suoni in chiave piu ritmica, curando maggiormente le sequenze di basso, e il disco pur elogiato dalla critica, forse piu del precedente, non ne doppio il successo di vendite. In seguito all'uscita di Equinoxe, Jarre tenne un concerto a Parigi in Place de la Concorde (1979), a cui assistettero un milione di persone, record che fu registrato nel Guinness dei primati. Nell'ottobre del 1981, Jarre fu il primo artista occidentale ad avere l。ヲautorizzazione a tenere un concerto a Pechino (Cina). Nel 1983, scrisse l'album Musique pour supermarches (Musica per supermarket) che ebbe una tiratura di soltanto una copia. L'album fu composto da Jarre per esprimere il suo disgusto verso il mercato musicale. Distrusse tutte le registrazioni originali ma permise ad una radio (Radio Luxembourg) di trasmetterlo una volta prima di metterlo all'asta. Qualcuno rimise insieme l'album utilizzando le registrazioni su nastro fatte durante l'unica trasmissione radio, ma la qualita risulto molto scarsa anche perche la stazione radio trasmetteva in AM. Alcuni pezzi furono rielaborati e inseriti in lavori successivi. Nel 1986, la NASA e la citta di Houston, chiesero al musicista di tenere un concerto per celebrare il 25「X anniversario della NASA e il 150「X anniversario della citta di Houston. Durante il concerto, l'astronauta Ronald McNair avrebbe dovuto suonare il sassofono nel brano Rendez-Vous VI in orbita sullo Space Shuttle Challenger. Avrebbe dovuto essere il primo brano eseguito dallo spazio. Purtroppo il disastro del Challenger, dove trovo la morte lo stesso McNair, vanifico il progetto. Il brano fu registrato con un altro sassofonista e reintitolato Ron's piece (Il pezzo di Ron), l。ヲalbum dedicato ai sette astronauti scomparsi nell'incidente. Il concerto di Houston fece registrare un nuovo record nel Guinness dei primati per la presenza di oltre 1,5 milioni di persone e fu caratterizzato da grandissime immagini proiettate e raggi laser diretti sugli edifici del centro di Houston, incluso uno schermo bianco gigante sulla facciata del Texaco Heritage Plaza, che era in costruzione. Nel 1988 Jarre, assieme ad altri musicisti come Hank Marvin, leggendario chitarrista dei The Shadows, tenne un concerto intitolato Destination Docklands, di fronte al complesso industriale East End Docklands di Londra. Il 14 luglio 1990 Jean Michel polverizzo il suo stesso record con un concerto tenuto a La Defense, Parigi a cui assistettero 2,5 milioni di persone. Il 6 settembre 1997 Jarre suono a Mosca durante le celebrazioni del 850「X anniversario della citta. La facciata dell'Universita statale di Mosca fu utilizzata come sfondo per la proiezione di spettacolari immagini, fuochi artificiali e giochi di luce alla presenza di 3,5 milioni di persone, un altro impressionate record tuttora imbattuto. Nel 1999 offri uno straordinario spettacolo di musica e luci nel deserto egiziano, vicino a Giza, intitolato The 12 Dreams of the Sun (I 12 sogni del sole). L'evento celebro il nuovo millennio e i 5000 anni della Civilta egizia oltre ad offrire l。ヲanteprima dell。ヲalbum Metamorphoses. Nel 2001 Jarre tenne un concerto in collaborazione con Arthur C. Clarke e Tetsuya Komuro nelle spiagge di Okinawa, per celebrare il reale inizio del nuovo millennio. Il concerto fu intitolato Rendez-vous in Space e il gruppo chiamato The ViZitors. Nello stesso anno suono anche all'Acropoli di Atene. Il 10 ottobre 2004 tenne un grande concerto nella Citta Proibita e in Piazza Tiananmen, che fu trasmesso da diverse TV satellitari con audio 5.1. Il 26 agosto 2005 ha celebrato il 25「X anniversario di Solidarnosc con un concerto a Gdansk, Polonia. Il 10 settembre 2005 ha suonato al LinX Live Show per l'apertura ufficiale dell'Eurocam Media Centre a Lint, Belgio. Il 16 dicembre 2006 ha tenuto il concerto "Water for life" nei pressi delle dune di Merzouga in Marocco per celebrare la fine dell'anno dedicato ai deserti e a alla desertificazione promosso dalle Nazioni Unite, e supportare la campagna 2005-2015 indetta dall'UNESCO a favore della tutela delle risorse idriche. Il 26 marzo 2007 Jarre pubblica il nuovo album "Teo&Tea", eseguito interamente con strumentazione digitale, ispirato al mondo del web e al tema degli incontri amorosi attraverso le chat, nei club e nelle discoteche. Nonostante una massiccia campagna promozionale condotta sulla rete attraverso concorsi per remix e lancio di video su Youtube, uno showcase allestito il 29 marzo 2007 negli studi dell'Alfacam, l'accoglienza di critica e pubblico e cosi negativa da costringere alla cancellazione di quasi tutti gli showcases previsti in Europa. Anche il concerto di Jarre previsto per il 26 luglio 2007 ad Albanella in provincia di Salerno, ad apertura del primo Powerstock Festival, verra cancellato una settimana prima, per motivi non del tutto chiari. Il 19 settembre 2007 Jarre tiene un concerto a sorpresa senza pubblico negli studi dell'Alfacam. In occasione dei 30 anni di Oxygene vengono recuperati tutti i sintetizzatori analogici utlizzati nel 1976 e, insieme a Francis Rimbert, Dominique Perrier e Claude Samard, vengono suonate dal vivo tutte le sei parti dell'album. Il concerto viene filmato in 3D in previsione di una sua pubblicazione su DVD entro la fine del 2007.

Warner Music Poland, 2005.10.31 Zapis koncertu Jeana Michela Jarre'a, jaki odbyl sie 26 sierpnia w Stoczni Gdanskiej w zwiazku z obchodami 25. rocznicy podpisania Porozumien Sierpniowych. Wydarzenie ogladalo 120 tys. widzow w stoczni. Bylo ono tez transmitowane na zywo przez telewizje i radio. Na plycie wsrod szeregu utworow francuskiego artysty znalazla sie nowa wersja "Murow" Jacka Kaczmarskiego. "Bardzo sie zaangazowalem w przygotowywanie CD i DVD. Calosc miksow wykonalem sam, poniewaz bardzo chcialem stworzyc cos, co wykroczy poza to, czego doswiadczylem na koncercie. czym innym jest doswiadczanie koncertu bedac czescia publicznosci, a zupelnie czym innym jego ogladanie na ekranie" 。V mowi artysta o zapisie koncertu gdanskiego w wywiadzie dla "Uwazam, ze koncertowe CD i DVD daja nieco inne spojrzenie na to wyjatkowe wydarzenie. Pozwalaja dostrzec inne jego aspekty". "To byl chyba pierwszy wystep w calym moim zyciu, kiedy bylem na scenie zrelaksowany. Ale zawdzieczalem to rowniez publicznosci, a moze przede wszystkim jej. Czulo sie, iz wszyscy zebralismy sie tam z tego samego powodu. Nie bylo bariery miedzy artysta a scena. Wszyscy bylismy rowni. Mialo sie wrazenie, iz koncert nie odbywa sie na wielkiej przestrzeni tylko w jakiejs malej salce. To troche dziwne, jesli wezmie sie pod uwage gdzie byl ten koncert i ze nie jest to typowe miejsce na tego typu wydarzenie. Wtedy w stoczni wszyscy celebrowalismy to samo wydarzenie. Z pewnoscia bylo to dla mnie wyjatkowe doswiadczenie, ktore bede pielegnowal w swojej pamieci do konca zycia" 。V dodaje.,51953,61569,plyty.html
