‘Oxymore’, a musical journey inspired by the “musique concrete”
In Jarre’s own words: “ ‘OXYMORE’ is a musical journey in which the sounds of Pierre Henry interact with Jarre’s new composition in a sonic game of mirrors, in which the creator of ‘Oxygene’ meets his inverted double in ‘Oxymore’. Opening a vortex that sucks the listener into an anachronistic swing in which the analog and the digital find a common playing field”.
In addition, the project is inspired by the French movement ” musique concrete” . Through this ‘Oxymore’, Jarre recovers this concept and reinvents it, with today’s tools.
