Jean Michel Jarre Rarities on 180g LP

"For the very first time compiled, here is a selection of tracks I composed before the success of Oxygene. At the age of 14/15 when I first started to play in a band, I very rapidly became interested in transforming the sounds of guitar, organ, flute by manipulation, varying pitch, adding distortion, recording backwards, creating echo effects and such, on a small Grundig tape-recorder that was given by my grandfather, André Jarre.

When I entered the GRM (Musical Research  Group), I realized that what I intuitively wanted to achieve was in fact a revolution initiated years before by a French composer, engineer and acoustician, Pierre Schaeffer. Schaeffer developed a genre of avant-garde music known as Musique Concrète, considering music not solely in terms of notes and traditional solfeggio, but in terms of sounds ; he was my master during three years.

Also influenced by my early study of classical harmony, I was interested in creating bridges between musique concrete, electronic, classical, pop…bringing together experimental sounds and melody. The selection of tracks in Rarities illustrates a few examples of my work during this period." - Jean Michel Jarre
