We are thrilled to announce the guest star of this year’s ArtTech Forum :
Jean-Michel Jarre has always been a futurist in his field. Throughout his illustrious career, the composer, performer, producer and cultural ambassador has continued to break new ground with his music and his mastery of creative innovation. From his early pioneering role in electronic music, his use of multi-channel audio technology and production, to his recent explorations into the realms of VR performance and the metaverse, technology is at the forefront of everything he does. He is quoted as claiming that “today is the most exciting time to create, to make music, and to share across so many mediums”.
Jarre is UNESCO ambassador for education, science and culture, an unconditional defender of the planet and the environment and Laureate of the Stephen Hawking Medal for scientific communication.
Jarre’s current catalogue, which includes 21 studio albums, has generated sales of more than 85 million worldwide, and earned him countless awards and nominations.
Throughout his career, Jarre has taken as canvas, some of the most iconic landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage sites around the globe for his creative, cultural and environmental message. He has also set new Guinness World Records for live audience attendance at concerts in several emblematic locations. He was the first western musician to be invited to perform in China, and has also created and performed concert-events at the Great Pyramids in Egypt, the Sahara Desert, the Forbidden City & Tiananmen Square, the Eiffel Tower, the Dead Sea, Al Ula… He has consistently sold-out arena and stadium tours across the continents, as well as performing at major festivals including Coachella. In 2021, he rang in the New Year with a groundbreaking livestream broadcast worldwide from a virtual Notre Dame in Paris – US Pollstar states that the Livestream attracted record breaking audiences of over 75 million viewers worldwide across various platforms, television and VR.
His most recent release Oxymore, conceived in immersive audio, was received with critical acclaim as a true ground-breaking approach to the art of composing, producing and experiencing music.
To accompany this release Jarre created his own metaverse, Oxyville where he hosts his live performances, interviews and masterclasses in virtual reality .
