360 surround sound. By moving from 2 channel (Stereo) to 5.1 channel (AERO), it literally takes the music into a whole new dimension. It has been compared to standing in an audio landscape rather than just looking at a picture.
Overcoming daunting technical difficulties, Jean Michel Jarre engineered AERO entirely by himself having beenunable to find an audio technician in the world that could help. This allowed him to exercise perfect artistic control, bringing the listener closer to the original vision of the music – the ‘AEROspace’ – he has always imagined but, until now, been unable to fully convey.
Released in both DVD 5.1 surround sound and CD super stereo formats together, AERO ensures accessibility for AEROnauts everywhere. With emphasis almost entirely on the new audio dimension, visuals are kept to a minimum so as not to distract. Teaser tracks will become available on the AEROzone website, together with technology demos, a unique 5-player AERO game, and exclusive opportunities to win tickets to both the European AERO showcase (7 September) and the massive 10 October concert in Beijing.
Like the milestones of Mono (1877) and Stereo (1958) that went before it, AERO is a unique sound experience that will change the way we listen to music. This is your chance to be a part of history and hear the sound revolution.
