What you will hear

The musical agenda includes parts of his recent opus, Electronica, which was nominated for a Grammy Award. The music works of Jeff Mills, Rone, BoysNoize, Armin van Buuren and Massive Attack and new remixed versions Oxygène and Equinoxe provide additional music.

“Virtual reality is a living spectacle today just as cinema was to theatre in its beginnings; a curiously new style. Virtual reality (VR) is similar; tomorrow’s medium of expression,” says Jean-Michel Jarre. (The actual quote: « La réalité virtuelle est aujourd’hui au spectacle vivant ce que le cinéma était au théâtre à ses débuts, une sorte de curiosité. Comme lui, la VR va devenir demain un mode d’expression à part entière » dit Jean-Michel Jarre.)
