Welcome To The Other Side - SXSW Special

Welcome To The Other Side - SXSW Special

Welcome to the other side is an odyssey of the species, a metaphorical fable in XR, a journey through time and space from the big bang to the end of the universe.
Jarre performs live from a studio near the cathedral in Paris, while his avatar played inside a virtual Notre-Dame. The 45-minute concert—featuring tracks from Jarre’s most recent GRAMMY-nominated opus Electronica, as well as new reworked versions of his classics, Oxygène and Equinoxe – gives the world a virtual inside look at the legendary landmark in a futuristic and festive way. Notre-Dame has a unique place in the collective imagination, it is a symbol of the strength and of World Heritage that binds us together.
