Today on 16 November 2018 Jean Michel Jarre releases an album called “Equinoxe Infinity”. It is a sequel to his fourth studio album, “Equinoxe”, which was released 40 years ago.
In 1978, Jean-Michel Jarre composed and produced an album that reflected the music of our future and thus revolutionized electronic music history. As a supporting element on “Equinoxe” was about the Watchers (the observers), who were seen on the original album cover in infinite numbers. Who are these watchers? Are you watching us? Are you a friend or an enemy?
In 1978, in an emerging era of technology and innovation, these Watchers were a symbol of machines watching us, an early vision of what the future would bring us. On “Equinoxe Infinity”Jean-Michel Jarre continues this idea. The new work will be released with two covers. One version embodies a future in which man lives in harmony with nature. The other version shows the destruction that machines and humans could bring across the planet.
For the well-known as innovator and pioneer Jarre, the topic of Artificial Intelligence and Man vs Machine is the most important and explosive topic for the future of humanity. For his thoughts, Jarre was honored in 2017 with the Standing Hawkins Medal of Science.
“Equinoxe Infinity” is the soundtrack for this two-sided vision of the future. The cover can not be selected when ordering. The selection is made at the request of the artist randomly.
Without further ado, here’s the album:
