About this 2015 Remastered Re-Issue…

‘Chronologie’ is an album of electronic music that was released on the French Disques Dreyfus label and licensed to Polydor records in 1993.
It was Jarre's 8th overall studio album and was inspired by Stephen Hawking's book: ‘A Brief History Of Time’.
‘Chronologie - Part 4’ and ‘Chronologie - Part 5’ started out as a composition for the Swiss watch company Swatch. The sound of ‘Chronologie’ was based on a new wave of electronic dance music that had been developing since the late 1980’s. Like Jarre’s previous album: ‘Waiting For Cousteau’, ‘Chronologie’ charted at Number 11 in the UK charts.

The musician line-up on ‘Chronologie’ is: Jean-Michel Jarre (synthesizer / keyboards / Fairlight), Michel Geiss (keyboards), Dominique Perrier (keyboards), Francis Rimbert (keyboards) and Patrick Rondat (guitar).

The 2015 edition of ‘Chronologie’ was Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by David Perreau’s Yakuda Audio in 2014. The newly Remastered sound is excellent and packs a lot of punch over the entire frequency range. The CD has an 8-Page Booklet featuring sleeve notes by Phil Alexander, Editor-In-Chief of Mojo Magazine and the disc itself has a high quality, full-colour on-body Picture Label featuring the front cover artwork image, so all-in-all, this is a great value-for-money product.

About Jean Michel Jarre…

Jean-Michel Jarre first came to international fame with his number one hit album: ‘Oxygene’ which went on to sell over 18 million copies worldwide!
A pioneer in his field, Jarre has made an immense contribution to the fastest growing musical revolution of all times: Electronic Music - conceiving music in terms of sounds rather than only in terms of notes, thus allowing the composer to become his own craftsman.
Having followed formal studies of harmony and counterpoint at the Conservatoire de Paris, he was inspired to reinvent music at its core, with his own singular vision, deploying the technology and tools of today. This pioneering approach gave birth to worldwide hit albums such as: ‘Oxygene’, ‘Equinoxe’, ‘Magnetic Fields’, ‘Zoolook’, ‘Rendezvous’, ‘Waiting For Cousteau’, ‘Chronologie’, and ‘Aero’… and sold over 80 million albums to date!

Following through with his revolution in music, he also conceived a brand-new genre and format of concerts; breaking away from the traditional theatre and arena context, Jarre brought his music and vision outdoors to the masses. Often free and open-to-all, these state-of-the-art concert-spectaculars showcase the natural or urban environment in which they are performed – truly singular, sonic and visual 'land-art' events, conceived and performed on a unique scale for a one-off experience.
Jarre’s legendary concerts have attracted Guinness Record-breaking audiences across the planet!
They take place in exceptional settings, marking extra-ordinary contexts: he was the first western musician invited to perform in post-Mao Red China, Millennium at the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Houston City concert in collaboration with NASA in memory of the Challenger space crew, Concert for His Holiness Pope John Paul II, France’s Eiffel Tower in celebration of World Cup football victory, Gdansk’s shipyard at the initiative of Nobel Peace Laureate Lech Walesa, London’s Docklands, Beijing’s Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, the Sahara Desert … to the absolute record live audience of 3.5 million in Moscow.
Most recently, Jean-Michel Jarre embarked on his first ever world tour, which has already taken him to over 30 countries with over 220 performances. July 2011, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco called upon Jean-Michel Jarre to celebrate his Royal Wedding by creating and performing a concert/event in the Principality, which was broadcast worldwide. The French musician has a dedicated ongoing engagement to the United Nations via UNESCO, as Ambassador and spokesperson for Environment and Education. Jean-Michel Jarre was elected President of CISAC in Washington June 6, 2013, succeeding the late Robin Gibb.
At present (May 2014), Jarre is working on a new studio album.
