La Défense – 25 years


LAURA DREYFUS – 35 years old – PARIS – FRANCE.

Laura is the youngest Francis Dreyfus daughter. When she remember about La Défense Concert, which her father was producer she made this beautiful poetry.

“The ear is the sun, hearing from the sea, the music, calling to us… can we hear the message that nature is trying to teach??…Calypso…under the water, in air and space, for all of us, beyond our world…one man tried to tell us all: “Waiting for Cousteau” – 25th anniversary of La Defense concert tribute season”

One of his best shows!!!!”

 “Happy 25th anniversary of La Défense concert, dear Jean-Michel.

 I Was 5-6 years old when my dad brought the VHS tape home and since then my life’s more beautiful and colourful with your music. When I was a kid and couldn’t easily pronounce your name for a while I was asking my mom to play the man in pink jacket’s tape!

This is my costume from 2 years ago, inspired by your outfit at the La Défense concert.

Thank you Jean-Michel, and hope to see you soon in person”

“The world is a dream ,

The dream of a man ,

Dreamed one pyramid ,

The Dream of a Night,

The Dream of a world.

Paris, 14.07.1990

Le monde c’est un rêve

Le rêve d’un homme

Rêvé d’une pyramide

Le rêve d’une nuit

Le rêve d’un monde

Paris, 14.07.1990

O Mundo é um Sonho,

O sonho de um Homem,

Sonhou uma Pirâmide,

O Sonho de uma Noite,

O Sonho de um Mundo.

Paris, 14/07/1990

El mundo es un sueño,

El sueño de un hombre,

Soñado una pirámide,

El sueño de una noche,

El sueño de un mundo.

París, 14/07/1990″

“If I had a time machine, the first thing to do would be watching this concert.

I was 10 at the time, unaware of this spectacle.

Hail Jean-Michel Jarre!”

This is my cover version of Jean-Michel Jarre’s “Oxygene Part 4” and is my 25th Anniversary tribute to his epic “Paris La Défense: A City In Concert”.
My arrangement is loosely based on his live performance.”

“Draw – it was a painting I did after visiting Paris in 2010 :)”

“This is my attempt at a cover of Equinoxe Part 5, inspired by the Paris La Défense performance (which was sadly cut from the concert film).”
