Electronica Vol 2 The Heart of
Following the unprecedented success of 'Electronica Vol 1 The Time Machine', The Godfather of Electronic Music, Jean-Michel Jarre, now releases Vol 2 of his 'Electronica' project, titled, 'The Heart of Noise.' Having amassed a mesmerising collection of collaborators to take part on Vol 1 'The Time Machine' which upon release last year became one of Jarre's most successful releases, the Frenchman has now secured another fifteen of music's most iconic artists to take part on 'The Heart of Noise'. This time around, Rone, Pet Shop Boys, Primal Scream, E.S., Julia Holter, Gary Numan, Jeff Mills, Peaches, Siriusmo, Yello, The Orb, Sebastien Tellier, Hans Zimmer, Cyndi Lauper and Christophe have all been handpicked by Jarre to complete his Electronica double album project. As with Vol 1, Jarre personally connected with each of his collaborators and travelled extensively to work together on the music. 'The Heart of Noise' is a tribute to Luigi Russolo, Italian composer and builder of experimental musical instruments, who proposed in 1913 in his Futurist manifesto 'Art of Noises' a number of conclusions about how electronics and other technology would allow futurist musicians to "substitute for the limited variety of timbres that the orchestra possesses today the infinite variety of timbres in noises, reproduced with appropriate mechanisms". Russolo predicted the dawn of the synthesiser and Electronic Music.
