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.

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 was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC
