More music

Having a spin around You Tube yesterday, I came across some wonderful music by Jean Michel Jarre, who has been one of my favourite musicians for many years.
Now for those who don't know, Jean Michel Jarre is world famous for his electronic, synth-based music and for the most spectacular concerts imaginable. Not for him the usual concert venues, stadiums, etc. When Jarre puts on a show, he does it with style using entire city centres. Sky-scrapers are his backdrops as he projects pictures created by lasers onto them and sets off tons of fireworks from the tops of them.
Nothing demonstrates this spectacular better than this video of one of his more lively pieces "Calypso".

He is best known for his piece "Oxygene" of which this is the most famous part...
