Jean Michel Jarre

This artist isn't for everyone. If you don't like computer generated music, you won't like him. This is an atypical song for him though, it is mostly "pan music." Steel drums as in Caribbean music. This song, Calypso, is inspired by the French oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. This is a live concert performed in Paris. Jarre holds the worlds record for the largest outdoor concerts with an audience of 3.5 million people at a concert in Russia. His set a world record of 1.5 million in Houston.
All of this information is from Wikepedia.
Oh to see him live in concert.

Did he win anything for largest number of musicians on stage? Wow, pretty cool stuff.

I enjoyed all the special effects on this piece. Is that a giant spider with lots of rythm?
It reminded me of guys on the streets of manhattan playing on the steel drums.
