Already 3 years ago, I was honoured to join Jean Michel Jarre production team with Joachim Garraud, Claude Samard with my old friend Marco Grenier for this incredible journey of collaborations with the legends of electronic music history.
“Electronic music has a family, it has a legacy and it has a future.”

Somewhere in december 2015 I had a chance to get my hands on a defect Hartmann Neuron Synthesizer. This is a rare synth and the chances to get my hands on a second hand unit around here were really close to none.
Pionnier et figure de proue de la musique électronique en Europe, Jean-Michel Jarre détient le record du monde du concert ayant attiré la plus grosse foule, soit 2,5 millions de personnes, à Paris, en 1990.

Here you can download the two custom made mixes that were played during the iHack 2013 night with the playlist. All tracks are again coming from Ektoplazm releases so be sure to head over there if you want to get your hands on the full albums you like !

Thanks to Ziphoid of SceneSat Radio for inviting me again !
Oh and… you may here soon a new remix of this track soon… and not from me ! Continue reading →

Most of the sound sources are hardware, the G2X providing the background noise and ambiance, the Virus for the CS80’ish sound, pads from the Wavestation, arpeggios from the DX11 (still can get usefull stuff out of this one too), even a little guitar in the break. Sometimes everything just fall right into place, making a perfect blend out of simplicity. Continue reading →
