Comprising of four parts- Soundscapes, Themes, Sequences, Explorations & Early Works -PLANET JARRE is unmistakably and utterly typically Jarre, highlighting a different creative focus of his work. Soundscapes taps into Jarre's natural sense for acoustic aestheticism and atmospheric composition translated into nine soundscapes that clearly reference his background in classical music and his passion for motion picture scores. Long and familiar ambient tracks like “Oxygene 1,” “Equinoxe 2” and “Chronology 1” seamlessly follow newer pieces like the original title track of Electronica - The Heart of Noise. Themes  features indestructible, timeless melodies and song-like structures such as “Oxygene 2,” “Oxygene 4,” “Zoolookologie” and “Industrial Revolution Part 2” that will resonate with everyone familiar with his repertoire.
