Today 50 years ago man walked on the Moon - that moment was the biggest collective emotion shared by the entire planet… My friend Arthur C Clarke dreamed of this a year earlier in his novel 2001, Space Odessey and he always saw the moon as our stepping stone into outer Space, and that is exactly where we are today, 50 years later… -------- Il y a 50 ans aujourd'hui, l'homme marchait sur la Lune - ce moment a été la plus grande émotion collective partagée par la planète entière… Mon ami Arthur C Clarke en avait rêvé un an plus tôt dans son roman 2001, l’Odyssée de l’Espace, considérant déjà la Lune comme notre tremplin vers l’espace, et c’est exactement là où nous en sommes aujourd’hui, 50 ans plus tard…

Exactly 40 years ago for Bastille Day, July 14, 1979, I gave my first outdoor concert in front of 1 million people at Place de la Concorde in Paris : it was said that 7 babies were born during the show, so Happy Birthday to them! Il y a 40 ans aujourd’hui, je faisais mon 1er concert en extérieur le 14 juillet 1979, devant 1 million de personnes. On m’avait dit que 7 bébés sont nés pendant le show, je leur souhaite un très bon anniversaire!

I want to thank Billboard for making me part of their 2019 International Power Player List as president of CISAC. It is another recognition of the creators rights we are fighting for. https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/8513059/international-power-players-2019-list “Jean-Michel Jarre, 70 President, CISAC Electronic music pioneer Jarre has long been one of the world’s most relentless activists for creators’ rights. As president of CISAC (the Paris-based organization representing 239 authors societies), he successfully fought for passage of the new Copyright Directive to ensure rights holders were fairly compensated. “In this struggle, we face giant opponents: the Goliaths of the tech world,” says Jarre. “These companies are essential partners for us, and they have produced fantastic innovations. Yet we can never stop getting the creators’ message out: It is us -- the creators, not the tech companies -- who are providing the fuel of the digital world.”
The Podcast I did with Side Jams is out now. Enjoy your weekend https://sidejams.podbean.com/e/episode-2-jean-michel-jarre/

I had the great pleasure to speak to Jo Wood in her podcast Alien Nation. „The French Electronic music pioneer talks to Jo in his Parisienne flat about his love of space, his friendship with Arthur C Clarke and his belief we are not alone in the universe.“ Sounds interesting? Then head over to Spotify, Apple and other streaming platforms to listen
