Synthesizer wizard Jean-Michel Jarre has - almost single-handedly - established French music on the international scene, staging a series of futuristic sound-and-light extravaganzas all over the world. Jarre, one of the most successful French artists of all time, has broken numerous records for concert attendance. His extraordinary mega-concerts in London, Hong Kong and Beijing attracted hundreds of thousands of fans - while his extraordinary show in Moscow in September 97 drew crowds of 3 million ! Jarre, who began his career experimenting with electro-acoustic sounds, put French synthesizer music on the map in 1976 with his best-selling album "Oxygène". Since then this "retro-futurist" (as Jarre once famously described himself) has gone on to become a truly international star.
