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.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

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

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.

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.
