Jean-Michel Jarre Reveals More Time Machine Details

(Prog) Jean-Michel Jarre will launch latest album Electronica Part 1: The Time Machine next month - and he says it's his "most ambitious project" to date. It features guest appearances from 15 artists across the electronic music spectrum, including the late Edgar Froese, Air, John Carpenter, Moby, M83 and 3D of Massive Attack.

Jarre has aimed to explain the history of the genre with the work. He says: "I've wanted to tell a story for a while, regarding its legacy from my experience, from when I started to nowadays.

"So I planned to compose for and collaborate with an array of artists, with people I admire for their contribution to our genre, that represented a source of inspiration for me. I had no idea how the project would evolve - but I was delighted that everybody I reached out to accepted my invitation."

Jarre worked with each collaborator personally, rather than via remote connections. Moby says: "It would be very easy for him to sit in Paris, email people and have them send things back." Read more and watch the trailer here.
