Oxygène Instruments Explained

US Jean Michel-Jarre's epic rig rundown      24/02/22

A week or so ago we shared a comprehensive explanation of how JMJ created his six track Oxygene album. In the attached video, he gives us a run down of the instruments he used to make it - in what could be the one of the most prized collections of gear ever placed in one room. In the video he shows his VCS, emitting white noise through a phaser, as well as multiple AKS "James Bond" suitcase synths, the amazing Moog Liberation, a Mellotron, and a theremin, amongst others. 

It's a tremendous selection of synths, and to see them all together set up and demoed by the man himself is a real treat. His passion, knowledge and skill with each unit is also to be admired! You can see the whole lot in action in this full live set released in 2007, which marked the 30th anniversary of the original worldwide release:
