Bus lightyear

On the way to Budapest in the tour bus, I am writing these few lines while everybody is sleeping. I love travelling in the bus. It's comfortable and fun with the musicians, Chris, Louis, Pierre..etc.

These days you can go around the world through the web, yet travelling like this, reminds you of real distance and how life is in Europe outside cities, a mix of beauty and desolation..

Bucharest was warm and sunny, charming people, warm audience, we played well and I broke my moog drum hitting it too strong..
I am going to sleep now. Good night.

Quel plaisir que de voir un grand artiste comme vous prendre le temps de communiquer jour après jour avec ses fans du monde entier. Moi qui ne suis qu'un québécois de Montréal, j'espère voir cette tournée débarquer près de chez moi, mais en attendant j'y rêve en écoutant votre musique qui rythme ma vie et mes passions.
Je me sens ainsi un peu plus proche du continent de l'Oxygène.
Bonne continuation et très respectueuses salutations du Québec.

Felicitations pour votre concert a Bucarest. Je suis un des centaines de gens qui vous ont acclamé. Il y a avait beacoup de gens dans la salle pour lequels votre musique etait la musique de leur adolescence, mais j'ai vu aussi des enfants ou bien des vieillards.On a vu un très, trés bon concert, et tout le monde pouvait dire que vous étiez sincérement ému a la fin. Merçi pour les deux chansons finales, et soyez de retour vite.

Dear Jean-Michel, Bucharest concert was great too and you were outstanding and marvelous. Please in future don't pass away your fans after the concert (nevertheless of the "securitate romanian guard demagoghia". It hurts a lot, esp. when we are travelling thousands of kilometers with out last expences and dreaming for such a moment almost whole life! Fortunately we succeeded to touch you in Beograd. Take care&bon voayage! See you soon! Keep the your spirit&energy for us! From/for the better public in Bulgaria

Dear Jean-Michel, I'd like to thank you very much for the beautiful moments you offered to us last night in Bucharest. I've been waiting for you for almost 20 years ( I'm 29 :) ) and finally, yesterady, my dream came true... When the performance was over and I stepped outside the musica hall into the park, I felt like landing from the outer space on the Earth, but your music eas still echoing in my mind carrying me far beyond the limits of space and time, to the very heart of the universe...
I wish you good luck with the tour, God bless you and keep you in good health ! Maybe next year you'll come in Romania with an outdoor performance, as you said...
Sincerely yours,
Sebastian

Hello, Jean Michel!
We are Vanello and Cristina from Bucharest, we met after the concert at the exit of Sala Polivalenta on 10 nov and you gave us an autographe. We wanted to say thank you again for this great show. You , the team and the ”old ladies” were just marvelous. We are musicians too (Cristina is a singer and I am a composer who makes electronic music from 15 years) so for us meeting you even for a few seconds is like a dream that came true. You are our number one artist and we look forward to see you in a concert in Bucharest next year. We will be there in front of the scene waiting for you to change our lives again.
We love you!
Vanello and Cristina from Bucharest.

Hi JMJ, thanks for the late night comment. You have a way of seeing things in different perspectives and taking in the beauty of those differences that more people should have. And it isnt necessarily about big things - just from travelling in a bus, you are getting some impressions that are quite interesting to think about. Yes, we probably do forget about real distances, now that we travel everywhere on the net. Thanks for reminding us.

Thank you so much for the beautifull moments in Bucharest. My eyes were full of teasrs at the start and end of the concert. I grew up on your music and I was a child again Monday. Thank you so much for coming to Romania. Multumesc

alin a dit…

Bon jour, JM!

I'm one of the milions of people, not so lucky to be indoor at your concert. In fact, i was one of the 3 - 4 hundred, spending 2 hours outdoors, hoping in a miracle because 100 euro/ticket x 2 people, coming from the same poket....was too much.
I really hope that is going to be a "next time", may be next year, when to have a second chance of seeing you in Bucharest. God Bless You. A la prochaine....

This friday it will be one week, since you have had a concert in Ljubljana. The feelings are still so strong. I think i was waiting for that moment at least 16 years and i cant wait to see one of your next bigger project in future. I dont doubt, about your succes on this tour. Thank you you very much Jean-Michele. Greetings from me my friend Marko his whife Janja and Jr. A child of Marko and Janja who will be born somewhere in month of april. I bet, that Jr. has also enjoyed. And..I promissed Marko that i will ask you, if you would like to be this child godfather. I kept my word...now it is up to you. Good luck and greetings from Slovenia.

Excellent show, dear Jean-Michel, and thank you very much for your work who inpired for my entire life! I was dreaming since I was a child to be live and alive (!) at one concert of you, but I never thought that my hands will shake so hard (because of the strong emotions) when you passed less than half metter near me (and I'm 33 years old)!!! Please, as soon as possible, come back to Bucharest and play this Divine music to awake our Divine souls! God bless you! Michel-Adrian

I will try to tell you in a few words what cannot be expressed by words.
In my childhood the first thing that touched my soul and opened my eyes that behind this rough material world exists something else, something more… was your music. This music guided me into places where time and space dissolved and just the shadow of senses remains in the limitless emptiness… You are the one who opened the door and laid me on the Path of searching…
In 93’ and 97’ I couldn’t even dream to participate in Budapest to your concerts. Yesterday on 12th November 2008 at Full Moon this dream came true. I could be there with other hundreds of people. I could be so closed to you and to Oxigen. It was a unique experience! I hope I can meet you again here next year!
Thank you for everything you gave me, for everything you gave to this World.

Yours faithfully.

Devine ma devinette : De quoi peut manquer un artiste riche, célèbre, qui fait jeune, avec une très joli brune (Anne Parillaud) et qui a fait des concerts dans plein d’endroits peu habituels ?

Plus d’argent ? Ca ne doit pas être sa principale motivation dans la vie.
Une autre femme ? Pas besoin de faire un concert pour cela.
Une visite culturelle a Bucarest , le petit Paris ? Personne ne peut être attire par la pollution, le trafic infernal, le froid et le « manele » (musique d’un genre douteux qui surgit parfois des voitures et maison de Bucarest).

Etre proche du public, voila le secret et la motivation du concert de Bucarest. Apres des années de concerts gigantesques, où la relation avec son publique était très distante (comme par exemple lors de son concert au pied de la tour Eiffel en 2000, juste après la victoire des bleus dans la coupe mondiale de foot, nous on était plus d’un million de gens et lui était une notion plutôt abstraite, un point en mouvement qui sortait des sons et des images) m Jean Michel Jarre a senti le besoin primordial de tout artiste , ressentir la réaction de son public. D’où un concert intimiste a Bucharest , l’artiste est venu avec ses instruments sur lesquelles il avait débute il y a vingt ans pour chanter live , en analogique complet , sans ordinateurs ou samplers.

Très respectueux avec l’audience, il s’est exprime en anglais et français, sa voix roumaine étant assurée avec de l’humour par … Zoltan (un prénom typiquement hongrois, d’où la réaction amusée du public). A raison, Jean Michel a prouve que, de la même manière qu’un violoniste est fier d’avoir entre ses mains une Stradivarius , lui il est aussi fier de se produire en utilisant les magnifiques instruments analogique qui ont eu une durée de vie injustement courte a cause de l’apparition des ordinateurs et des samplers.

Que ceux qui se sont plaint que la durée du concert a été courte essayent eux-mêmes de chanter simultanément a 3-4 instruments éparpilles sur 15 mètres cares. La performance a été exceptionnelle, nécessitent un effort permanent de concentration. En même temps, la proximité avec l’artiste nous a permis d’apercevoir un Jean Michel qui a pris le temps de s’amuser visiblement en jouant , le sourire était souvent sur son visage .

Le cote magique du spectacle fut assuré par trois instruments analogiques : l’antenne mystique que l’artiste l’enchantée comme un prêtre voudou , le sabre de jedi agitée dans toutes les directions et la lampe magique ont fait le délice du public qui se demandait s’ils étais en train d’assister a un spectacle de cirque, a une messe sans paroles ou bien au concert sérieux pour lequel ils avait casse leur tirlire.

Le publique a été extraordinaire, si on tient compte de l’intensité parfois extrême de la musique, qui te scotche littéralement au siège. Il y a eu beaucoup d’applaudissements, même des bis, comme si c’était un ordinaire concert de jazz ou rock.

A la fin du concert on a pu voir un tas de gens légèrement abasourdis par la force du spectacle mais qui en voulait toujours plus et un artiste heureux , Jean Michel , qui a eu ce qu’il voulait : il nous a donne de l’oxygène contre de la chaleur humaine.

Hei. Thank you so much for the concert in Bucuresti. You and your crew were amaizing. You have such a heartmelting smile and you were so sweet throwing kisses to everyone in the public. You are a sacred monster of music and you should have no age. I can't imagine the world without you and your music. Can't wait to see you again in Romania.
