Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene 3

Oxygène 3 is the nineteenth studio album by the French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre. Announced via a post on Jarre's Instagram account, the album was released on 2 December 2016, on the 40th anniversary of the original Oxygène album.

During the recording of his Electronica albums, Jarre composed and recorded a piece that he said "made me think about what Oxygène could be if I was composing it today." With the 40th anniversary in mind, Jarre decided to record another chapter of Oxygène, with the original minimalist approach in mind, but using new technology to create it. During the Electronica Tour, Jarre previewed the track Oxygène 17, which was released as a single on 4 November. For the artwork of the album, Jarre returned again to longtime collaborator and artist of the original Oxygène album cover Michel Granger to create a 3D model of his original painting that served as the cover for Oxygène

Oxygène 3 was released as a standalone album on CD, digital download and LP, as well as in the Oxygène Trilogy package. The Oxygène Trilogy was released on CD in digipak format, and in the Ultimate edition, which contains the CDs of the albums, as well as transparent vinyl and an exclusive coffee table book.

 

The plugin used relies heavily on HTML5 for mp3 playback and so far I get acceptable results only when using Google Chrome. I hope licensing issues will be solved for Mozilla Firefox someday.
