Seedy, sometimes I'm really Jealous that you missed some European legends of electronic music and you get to experience them now, post-30 :)

Jarre is a bit commercial, poppy, but still a BIG innovator & true pioneer in the world of electronic music, creation, production, synths, all of it.

Of the top10 biggest (with audience) concerts in the history, I think 6 belong to Jarre - His concerts are insane.

Cairo, Oxygene in Moscow, China, AERO, Rendez-Vous in Space (playing with NASA made synth of lasers), Poland, Concorde... the list is huge...

Here's what I have (it's over 33GBs)

oh don't get me wrong....i'm surely way late to the game but i discovered his genius a few years ago ;)
just started watching those docs the other day and really digging into these huge and tailored concerts he's done and then realized that some of them are not commercially available as far as I can see.

i have one officially released DVD though can't recall which show it was
beyond that in audio I have the live albums our little paradise has

i might need your help bro :)

I'd never use poppy as a criticism. Jarre's done some shit, but it's never been because of its accessibility.

On the other hand, music has always been a very personal thing for me, and I can't think of anything totally at odds with that than those big Jarre concerts. It's incredibly rare you'll find me at a gig with an audience of more than 50-100 people.

Aye Jarre's performances are the David Copperfield of live shows - all flashy flash

You explained it better Ross :)
But flashy flashes aside, some of his stuff is essential.

Oxygene in Your Livingroom is a masterpiece (IMHO) :)

Also, these late projects of his, Electronica 1 & 2, have some serious gems in them, (as well as some serious shit) :)

PART 2


...You can just see the passion oozing out of him talking about all that gear :)

oh i've got no problems with nothin :)
i think the huge concerts are an awesome undertaking and I would have no issue being at one though I would probably be fighting my way close to the stage hayoooooo lol
i also don't mind the occasional pop or cheese that he produces. the overall body of his work is superb imo

watching those docs it's amazing to see just how involved he is in all aspects of those productions. groundwork for something like the cairo show started 2 years in advance!
