|Titel||Planet Jarre (2-CD Deluxe Digipack Edition)|
|Genre||Electronic / Synth / New Age|
|Omschrijving||Sony has released Planet Jarre in September 2018.
It`s a 50th anniversary Jean Michel Jarre anthology
that is available in three physical formats,
including a super deluxe edition box set.
This new set features 41 works “hand-picked” by
Jarre himself and re-mastered to deliver what the
label describes as “a new and sparkling freshness
to the sound of the package”.The super deluxe (or
‘Ultimate’ box set) comprises two CDs and two MCs
(yes, cassette tapes). The vinyl box is packaged as
a ‘book’ and has all the audio across four vinyl
records, and there is a two-CD set also.
Jarre has divided the audio offering into four
different sections and he explains the methodology:
“Going through the body of my existing work for
this project, I realised that I have four quite
different styles of composition. There is this
common idea that people are focusing on shorter and
shorter moments of music by zapping constantly.
This is not necessarily true. We are also spending
more and more time in our day-to-day life listening
to playlists. Wherever we are and whatever we do.
This is the reason why I decided to divide this
project into four different parts, four different
worlds that make up my own world…my own planet. And
I hope that you will enjoy the journey.”
The four parts are: Soundscapes, Themes, Sequences,
Explorations & Early Works. Sequences features two
new tracks: Coachella Opening and Herbalizer. The
last disc features the previously unreleased demo
recording of Music For Supermarkets, Jarre’s 1983
project which saw him press one copy of the album
for auction before ordering the master tapes to be
destroyed. Erosmachine from the same disc dates
