Jean-Michel Jarre Releases New Generative Music App EōN

Thursday, November 7th, 2019 |

Jean-Michel Jarre has released a new generative music app EōN.

The app produces infinite, ever-evolving music, accompanied by a constant progression of organic visuals. The app creates a never-repeating musical experience every time it is used. There are an infinite number of compositions that can be created from EōN.

Jarre created over six hours of music and sounds for the app, which may seem finite, but when fed through the algorithm by Alexis Zbik and Vianney Apreleff from French music tech company BLEASS who helped define the rules of the app and how it orchestrates music, there are an infinite number of possibilities.

“EōN revolutionizes the sheer concept of ‘recorded’ music as we have always known it by immersing the listener in a timeless sonic (and visual) experience which has no start nor finishing note,” explains BLEASS co-founder Vianney Apreleff in a statement. “It’s an immense honor for BLEASS and myself to be part of this new artform envisioned by Jean-Michel Jarre.”

The name EōN is to showcase what the app is really about and how infinite the musical possibilities are.

“I named this project EōN as it best defines exactly what it is – an infinite musical and visual creation,” explains Jarre in a press release. “Personally, I truly feel that EōN is one of my most exciting creative projects since my debut Oxygene. EōN is a never-ending, never repetitive, organic art-piece that will live and grow forever in everyone’s own singular space-time continuum, at the tip of their finger.”

The music sends cues to the visuals, which then work in harmony with the music according to Jarre’s art direction.

The app will cost $8.99 / €9.99 / £8.99 and be regularly updated. Right now it is only available on iOS, but it will soon come to Android in the near future.

Users can download EōN now on the app store.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”
