Jean-Michel Jarre releases Brutalism, the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album Oxymore, scheduled for 21 October 2022, via Sony Music…
Jean-Michel comments: «Oxymore is an homage to the late French composer Pierre Henry, with whom I had been intending on collaborating for Electronica. For those who are not aware: Henry was an iconic figure in electronic and classical music. Since his death in 2017, his widow provided me with some stems of material which had been intended for use for this collaboration».
«Pierre’s work inspired me for Oxymore and working around his soundbites led me down a creative path that I may not have taken otherwise. I chose some of his sounds precisely from one track to another. Oxymore is also a tribute to the French way of approaching modern music, which definitely influenced the future of electronic music worldwide».
