Progrography

Jean-Michael Jarre
Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Kitaro, Brian Eno and Jean-Michel Jarre represent a united notion of electronic music. Jarre gained international attention with Oxygene, the first of many album-length works broken into numbered chapters. Comparing Jarre to Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, his music would appear to be more stylish and accessible. For him, sound and spectacle were part of the same muse. In the '80s, he mounted expensive tours around the world that featured groundbreaking use of video and laser technology. His most experimental work is Zoolook, which featured words from over two dozen languages twisted into unrecognizable shapes accompanied by electronic music. His other works are generally less daunting, almost ingratiating.
