JEAN MICHEL JARRE short bio + Audio cassette tape for sale

Jean Michel Andre Jarre (born 24 August 1948 in Lyon) French composer, performer and music producer. He is a pioneer in the electronic, ambient and New Age genres, and known as an organiser of outdoor spectacles of his music featuring lights, laser displays, and fireworks. Jarre was raised in Lyon by his mother and grandparents, and trained on the piano. From an early age he was introduced to a variety of art forms, including those of street performers, jazz musicians, and the artist Pierre Soulages. He played guitar in a band, but his musical style was perhaps most heavily influenced by Pierre Schaeffer, a pioneer of musique concrete at the Groupe de Recherches Musicales. His first mainstream success was the 1976 album Oxygene. Recorded in a makeshift studio at his home, the album sold an estimated 12 million copies. Oxygene was followed in 1978 by equinoxe, and in 1979 Jarre performed to a record-breaking audience of more than a million people at the Place de la Concorde, a record he has since broken three times.
