WAITING FOR COUSTEAU by Jean Michel Jarre (1990)


Many people will know the epic productions of Jarre from ‘Rendez-vous’ performed in Huston, or ‘Revolutions’ performed in Docklands, London. This is a more tranquil meditative piece about 1 hour long.

Inspired as a tribute to Jacques Cousteau it is a piece that has no set form, more adjacent sounds, using music to connect them.

For me, it truly captures the freedom of being underwater: no phone, no email, just breathing and observing the underwater world in all its simplicity.
