Welcome To The Other Side took place on New Year’s Eve, produced in partnership with VRrOOm, the City of Paris and under the patronage of UNESCO – becoming the official midnight image and countdown from Paris.
Jean-Michel Jarre performed live from Studio Gabriel near the cathedral in Paris, while his avatar played inside a virtual Notre-Dame. The 50-minute concert, featuring tracks from Jarre’s most recent album Electronica, as well as new reworked versions of his classics, Oxygène and Equinoxe – gave the world a virtual inside look at the legendary landmark in a futuristic and festive way.
Created, designed and produced in record-breaking 3-months, the 50 minute mixed-media project gathered a team of one hundred artists and technicians to recreate Notre-Dame de Paris and achieve a masterpiece blending an array of formats and skills.
