DCO 2004 cover  

Y our space face placed against a glass case of pastries / interstellar salivating notwithstanding / which would you choose / the chinese trinkets / or les histoires de la lune? / evanescent notes like seeds on the wind in the magnetic fields of our mind / or a brief peek at a zoo of a very different kind? / Donít decide / this dessert cart is yours for the taking / seize Jarre and ingest the music heís been making / Itís all essential for a moment / flavors blossoming and yielding / in the aether, in the fields / in the hip and trendy clubs / beneath the shadow of pagodas / where the ghosts of history stood / all of it is Jarreís world / the deepest sea, the deepest space / and here, distilled, the essence of it / give your mind a taste.
