Jean Michel Jarre Rarities Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview
Here is a selection of tracks composed by Jarre before the success of Oxygene. "At the age of 14 or 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 illstrates a few examples of my work during this period." — Jean Michel Jarre
