    Good stuff! The narrator touches it a little in their video, but do you know of interviews where JMJ goes more in details about his philosophy? (French is fine for me)

    I wonder how much money this guy had even before making the album? Shit, that must hundreds of thousands of dollars of Equipment right there.

    Saw that video before, he looks like a mad scientist who neglects his personal hygiene lol
    I think he's kinda music aristocracy, his father worked on Hollywood soundtracks and the guy was able to get into very prestigious music schools/programs, so I guess access wasn't too much of a problem for him.

    I came across that one yesterday, interesting too:
    Jean-Michel Jarre on the evolution of music technology: Part 1 | Native Instruments - YouTube

    E: actually, I'm full of shit regarding the "rich kid" part.

    He released an autobiography 3 years ago, it's called Mélancholique Rodéo. I think I'm gonna start reading it this week.

    That sounds like something the French gouvernment would do. I started reading his book and actually, his father didn't play any part in all of this, he divorced and left JM behind when he was 5. He grew up in public housing in Paris suburbs with his single mom, and it sounds like they were broke.
    In the first chapter, he talks about a big concert he gave in Russia (he has Russian ancestors from his father's side) and he insinuates that the gouvernment used chemtrails to clear the sky the day he was supposed to play lol
