New Jean Michel Jarre Album To Explore The Sound Of Silence

jean-michel-jarreJean Michel Jarre has announced that he’s taking a break from touring to explore the sound of silence:

Now that I have more time, I want to explore different directions, and in particular the notion of silence.

I am sure you have noticed how the first few seconds of silence at the end of a track feel like they still belong to that track. To the best of my knowledge, the only work of importance ever composed in this field is the minute of silence played in solemn occasions, but I find the arrangement a bit basic.

I would like to compose a silent album that would retain melodies, and mix the warm grain of analog silence and some sampled silence as well.

Expect to hear something soon. Or not.

Sounds like Jarre may be getting a No Pass Filter for his Moog modular before long.

  1. Maybe he will do a cover of John Cage's 4'33''. I need to get that No Pass Filter. All i have is a digital NP filter, but it doesn't have the same warmth.

  4. Let's see if we can get a law passed. Anyone of any age who covers said classics should have a grape Nehi poured into their most expensive instrument while its plugged in. I love those pieces, but sheesh, they're been so overexposed, I can see daylight through the tread. The day someone covers Johannes Schmoelling or Michael Brook I'll be one of the first to tip my hat.

  5. I'm too burned out on every other person under 40 who owns a synth doing endless "covers" of "Oxygene," "On the Run" and the opening to "Baba O'Reily" to care. Big filter sweeps are for guys with manginas.
