I am thrilled to announce my partnership with TheWaveVR today. TheWaveVR is the world’s first social VR platform and community that provides new ways to experience, create, and share music and visual arts. The team has partnered with incredibly talented comic book illustrator and digital artist Sutu who has created bespoke 3D artwork inspired by ‘Equinoxe Infinity’ for the partnership. Users will be able to incorporate these images, featuring the ‘Watchers’, into their live shows in order to create reality bending, audio reactive environments. Mark December 12th in your calender, where I will be hosting a one-off Q&A in TheWave. Check www.thewavevr.com for more info.

Reminding you that next time you want to have a nice Podcast listening experience I can recommend my conversation with Matt Berry on "Planet Jarre - The Podcast". We talked about the Oxygene album, playling live, recording the Electronica project and Equinoxe Infinity. Listen to it now if you like. https://lnk.to/JMJ-PlanetJarre-ThePodcast
With Equinoxe Infinity there is of course new music out now but if you want to listen to a classic, there is now a video also for La Cage on YouTube: https://youtu.be/TKfdCTxJAJ8
My inspiration for this brand new music came to me when I was asking myself what ever became of the « watchers » I had on the cover of Equinoxe 1978, exactly 40 years ago. For me, at the time, the cover of Equinoxe 1978 was illustrating the future of our planet being watched and observed, following the rater dark premonition of the Oxygene cover illustration. I asked myself what became of those « watchers » over the years, what did they see, what happened to them and what do they see lying ahead for us in the future… And then, I imagined them to have become whistleblowers, alerting us on the possible evolution of mankind and our planet in the face of our dealing with climate change, with technology and A.I. today. Will the future be peaceful, green as blue or will the future be apocalyptic and on fire? That was my inspiration for the music, like a soundtrack to those two different worlds & I asked Filip Hodas a young Czech graphic artist I discovered on Instagram, to take Michel Granger’s “watchers” and to depict them in two separate visions I had in mind, 2 different artworks for the same album, partly sunny, partly dark, as the mystery remains as to what truly lies ahead for us... I have a video for you, check it out it is the special one: https://youtu.be/pxs06JL19Jk
