Had the honor of being in the presence of not one, but several, gods of electronic music last night. Pioneering french producer, composer, and musician Jean-Michel Jarre assembled a panel of five of the more than thirty collaborators on his Electronica double album project — the first edition of which, Electronica 1: The Time Machine, is in the running for a Grammy this Sunday in the “Best Dance/Electronic Album” category.
Nic Harcourt moderated the discussion between Jarre, Hanz zimmer, Gary Numan, Moby, Little Boots, and Julia Holter at the intimate Americana Lounge at The Record Parlour in Hollywood. You can view the conversation in its entirety here or in the player below:
We’re keeping our fingers crossed for Sunday — if anyone deserves a grammy for electronic music it’s Jarre, who’s contributed so much and inspired so many.
