Jarre - Les Chants Magnétiques download album

Les Chants Magnétiques ‎(LP, Album). This was my favourite early Jarre album, where I thought his style finally matured into a strong piece that was quite virtuosic but at the same time very musical. This record is a bit scratchy but surprisingly plays really well and sounds very full bodied. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Jarre ‎– Les Chants Magnétiques. Label: Disques Dreyfus ‎– FDM 18108. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. III" - adding a kalimba to amazing effect, providing one of Jarre's most adorable avant-garde moments - which should have been the key-point regarding inspiration for this album, because it does provide an interesting angle from which "Les Chants Magnetiques" could have taken off more properly into something far less predictable. Sadly, his self-indulgent soundplay here is a downright hit and miss affair.

Les Chants Magnétiques was the third of Jean Michel Jarre's albums in a row to update Tangerine Dream's atmospheric sequencer trance for a synth pop and mainstream crossover audience. The side-long "Les Chants Magnetiques, Pt. 1" is the capstone of the album, while "Pt. 2" through "Pt. 5" move through driving electronic pop and several passages more indebted to Jarre's past in the musique concrète scene.

Les Chants Magnétiques (English title: Magnetic Fields) is the fifth studio album by French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre, released on Disques Dreyfus on 22 May 1981. The album was one of the first records to use sampling as a musical element and represents a departure from the sound of Jarre's previous efforts. The long first track consists of three distinct movements, the slower second movement being heavily laden with sample work

This album has an average beat per minute of BPM (slowest/fastest tempos:, BPM). Tracklist Les Chants magnétiques, Magnetic Fields. Recent albums by Jean Michel Jarre. Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise. Electronica 1: The Time Machine. Oxygène: New Master Recording.
