Info for OXYMORE (Binaurel Headphone Mix)
Electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre releases his 22nd studio album OXYMORE, and one of his most ambitious projects to date.
OXYMORE is an homage to the late French composer Pierre Henry, with whom Jarre had been intending on collaborating for Jarre’s GRAMMY-nominated project album ‘Electronica’. Henry was an iconic figure in electronic and classical music, and one of Jarre’s mentors at the Groupe de Recherche Musical (GRM) where he studied. Since his death in 2017, Henry’s widow provided Jarre with some stems of material which had been intended for use in this collaboration.
OXYMORE is a musical journey where Pierre Henry’s sounds interact with Jarre’s new composition in a sonic game of mirrors, where the creator of Oxygene finds his inverted doppelganger in OXYMORE, opening a vortex that sucks the listener into an anachronistic back-and-forth where analogue and digital find a common playground.
The project is inspired by the French movement ‘musique concrete’ (concrete music), a genre of music composition that utilises recorded sounds as raw material. The movement was first developed in the 1940s and went on to revolutionise the way music is produced. With ‘OXYMORE’, Jarre takes this concept and reinvents it with the tools of today.
Jean-Michel Jarre has always been a futurist in his field. Throughout his illustrious career, the composer, performer, producer and cultural ambassador has continued to break new ground with his music and his mastery of creative innovation. From his early pioneering role in electronic music, his use of multi-channel audio technology and production, to his recent explorations into the realms of VR performance and the metaverse, technology is at the forefront of everything he does. He is quoted as claiming that “today is the most exciting time to create, to make music, and to share across so many mediums”.
