Jean Michel Jarre - Second Rendez-Vous
Hey there music lovers!!
Last night Sweden, Stockholm had a visit of the master of instrumental electronic music, Jean Michel Jarre with his huuuge amount of keyboards and lotsa laser :)
Stones took some pictures of the show, enjoy!!
I took a tune from his album from 1986 "Rendez-Vous" Its kinda funny the tracks are called "First Rendez-Vous", "Second Rendez-Vous", Third and so on, to "Last Rendez-Vous".
To you that dont know much about this guy, he is 63 years old and released his first single in 1969 and the album came 1972 and the last album 2007. Jean Michel plays
electronic music on his keyboards without singing, the music its kinda outer space mixed with classic music, or futuristic electronica. Jean Michel is born in Lyon, France.
Raised by his mum and granparents.
Jean Michel Jarre was born on 24 August 1948 in Lyon, the son of composer Maurice Jarre and French Resistance member and concentration camp survivor France Pejot. The two separated when Jarre was five years old; his father moved to the United States, while his mother remained in the suburbs of Paris to look after their son.

Jarre did not meet his father again until he was eighteen. Jarre's Grandfather, André Jarre, was an oboe player, engineer and inventor, who also designed an early audio mixer used at Radio Lyon. He also gave Jean Michel his first record player. For the first eight years of his life, Jarre spent six months of each year at his grandparent's flat along the Cours de Verdun, in the Perrache district of Lyon. Jarre has cited the street performers he watched from his window there as an influence on his art (traces of this can be found on his album Équinoxe, particularly "Équinoxe Part 8")
Ladys and Gents, here is Jean Michel Jarre with Second Rendez-Vous.
