Web Summit, Lisbon, 7 November 2019: Acclaimed electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre has launched his latest project, EōN: a dynamic music app which produces infinite, ever-evolving music, accompanied by a constant progression of organic visuals. Using original musical elements composed by Jarre specifically for the project, the app creates a never-repeating and completely unique musical experience for every user, every time.

With its global premiere at Web Summit in Lisbon, EōN — named after the ancient Greek god of time and eternity — is a work of art designed to be played endlessly. A world-first due to its sheer scope and scale, the app combines man and machine as the algorithm weaves together original material — beats, melodies, chords — which Jarre composed, performed and recorded in his studio. A stark difference to other generative-music apps, which are often limited to a linear, 'ambient-music' style, EōN is like a never-ending album with a rich variety of tempo, tones, and rhythms.

Upon completing his compositions for the app, Jarre approached SONY CSL's researcher, Alexis André, to bring the music to life visually by creating an intricate and elaborate flow of ever-evolving graphics. The encoding and final algorithm was delivered by Alexis Zbik and Vianney Apreleff from French music tech company BLEASS who, with Jarre's artistic direction, defined the rules of the app and how it orchestrates the music.

Delivering an unrivalled experience through endless hours of original music, EōN produces an individual piece of art for every user. Users will be able to listen to music generated by EōN both online and offline as the algorithm and audio engine are built directly into the app.

Jarre is at the forefront of artists using new technology for music, most recently in partnership with TheWaveVR, allowing users to experience his latest album, Equinoxe Infinity, in virtual reality. With technology at the core of everything we do today, Jarre believes that "this is the most exciting time in history to make music". His ongoing collaboration with SONY CSL is proving to be immensely productive and insightful, and will inform Jarre's next creative endeavour.

Commenting on the app, Jarre said "I named this project EōN as it best defines exactly what it is - an infinite musical and visual creation. 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."

When describing EōN and the collaborative experience, SONY CSL's Alexis André said: "An audio-visual journey that transcends time... I could not think of a better challenge, and it's been a priceless experience to bring the sounds of Jean-Michel Jarre to the screen."

"EōN revolutionises 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,'' added BLEASS co-founder Vianney Apreleff. "It's an immense honour for BLEASS and myself to be part of this new artform envisioned by Jean-Michel Jarre."

Priced at $8.99 / €9.99 / £8.99, the app will be updated regularly with new features and will also be available to other platforms, including Android, in the near future.
