Michel Geiss veröffentlicht Track auf YouTube

Hallo Leute,

hoffe, dass das hier die richtige Stelle im Forum ist.

Michel Geiss, ehemaliger künstlerischer Mitarbeiter von Jean Michel Jarre, hat seinen ersten Track auf YouTube veröffentlicht. Der Titel heißt "Avatar".

Link: Avatar

Es gibt auch schon eine Art Review zum Track:

Emerging from the uber-shadow of Jean-Michel Jarre

Good things come to those who wait. And we waited a very long time and now it's going to happen: Michel Geiss, former long-time artistic collaborator to Jean-Michel Jarre, finally pre-released his very first track Avatar on YouTube and even a complete album is about to follow soon (hopefully).

Although he already created for example jingles for companies such as Gaumont Pictures, he never published them officially and thus his name was always a sort of insider's tip. While his work for Jean-Michel Jarre is more evident, he always preferred to keep on the sidelines. Besides his work as sound and recording engineer he also invented and built some spectacular instruments for Jarre such as the most-famous Matrisequencer which was used heavily on several albums of Jarre and he created remarkable remixes of Jarre's tracks as well such as his remix of Chronologie 8. But now he emerged from the shadow of the self-proclaimed "godfather of electronic music", always with the risk to be blamed for just copying Jean-Michel Jarre's style.

And yes, Avatar sounds a lot like Jarre or is it in fact vice-versa?! In fact, it's the best Jarre track since his 1993 Chronologie album. Just kidding. Although one clearly can recognize on which album Geiss was the artistic collaborator, Jarre of course has his own style.

Michel Geiss' YouTube debut consists of swirling sequencer sounds, a rather dashing lead sound and even some vocoder voices. This musical recipe makes Jarre-fans hearts leap for joy! But to be more precise: Geiss is not copying Jarre.

The track Avatar is very promising and whets the appetite for more music from the man and mastermind behind the "godfather".
