Jean Michel Jarre - Equinoxe

It’s Throwback Thursday on this New Sounds. Hear music by Jean-Michel Jarre, from back in the 1970’s; his eight-part suite, “Equinoxe.”  The synth washes and complex electronic multi-layering, along with the sequenced bassline, reflect a day in the life of a human being, from morning to night. Then, music from Manuel Göttsching from his 1984 album named after the most popular opening chess move, 'E2-E4'.  With its drum machine and pulsing guitar line, along with some light synthesizers, this record set the tone for electronic dance music, probably informing the two following decades of mainstream house. Also, listen to new music for electric and acoustic guitars, a Talkbox, drum machines, and sometimes a mandolin from Mark McGuire, also known for his work in Cleveland's drone collective Emeralds.  That, and more.
