There’s been a fair bit of excitement around the series of Jean Michel Jarre concerts where he tours the 1976 Oxygen album using much of the original synthesizers. Seems like everyone I know has a ticket a part from me... After Dave Robinson from ProsoundNewsEurope recounted his experience of the Dublin gig on our Sonic TALK 080 podcast - and also kindly donated a few pictures from the show, we’ve also had come into our possession several clips from Thursday nights Birmingham show. One of the points made was that the synthesizers are presented as equal stars of the show, as you can see in the clip where JMJ talks of them as classics “like the Stradivarius or the Stratocaster�. This is at the opening, just after emerging from an egg and just before the extended tuning sequence – for they do need a lot of tuning up. The next clip, a large (like really massive) mirror is lowered from the ceiling, enabling the audience to see what the players behind JMJ are up to. Apparently, there was a certain amount of plugging and unplugging going on to get these “old ladies� to perform. Enjoy.
