A Tribute to the French Pioneer
Childhood is bathed with influences. I don't know where my passion for synthesizers came from, but Jarre and Vangelis were certainly around when it happened. Jarre I remember for his plethora of electronic sounds, and Vangelis for his musicality. Following Slow Motion - my tribute to Vangelis - here comes Hydrogen XII - its Jean-Michel Jarre counterpart.
Jarre fans will easily recognize the multiple references to the Oxygen album: the title, the background image and the sounds of course! With this soundscape, we are reaching the limits of myNoise. The audio engine on myNoise was never intended to play synchronized tracks, which means that they can get out of sync after a while. Still, it was dear to me to feature the sounds of one of my heroes, on this site. Who never dreamed of being able to mix the different tracks of a song independently? I was, when I was listening to Oxygen as a teenager and wondering how Jarre was able to fit all these sounds on a 8-track recorder. Now, on myNoise, you can enjoy playing with the individual track balance.
