The project was conceived with JARRE‘s wish to encompass the last few decades of electronic music with the participation of outstanding artists of all generations with whom he felt especially connected with by a common DNA .The album features 16 collaborations, including the so-far-revealed M83, Tangerine Dream, Gesaffelstein and 3D from Massive Attack.
“I’ve wanted to tell a story for a while regarding electronic music history from my point of view and experience, from when I started to nowadays,” JARRE says. “So I planned to collaborate with array of artists who are, directly or indirectly, linked to this scene, over the last four decades that I’ve been making electronic music–with people I admire for their singular contribution to our genre, that represent a source of inspiration for me but who also have an instantly recognizable sound. At the outset, I had no idea how this project would evolve, but I was delighted that everybody I reached out to accepted my invitation.”
Original demos were composed and produced by JARRE specifically for each artist. They in turn were invited to bring their unique spirit and signature to the recording, after which he completed the project.
