Jean-Michel Jarre has collaborated with rising British composer Adiescar Chase to create “Synthy Sisters Take Two.” The track is a rework of “Synthy Sisters” taken from Jarre’s acclaimed 2022 album OXYMORE.

The rework continues a series of collaborations from the album, including “EPICA TAKE 2” with Marseille-based Electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist French 79; “EPICA EXTENSION” with Brian Eno; “BRUTALISM TAKE 2” with Martin Gore; and “BRUTALISM REPRISE” with Deathpact.

Adiescar Chase is an emerging and celebrated composer, known for her work on the soundtrack to the Netflix series “Heartstopper.” “Synthy Sisters Take Two” changes the essence of the original track, with Chase bringing additional operatic vocals and her own signature synths to the table.

“One of the first electronic albums I was introduced to growing up was Jean-Michel Jarre’s ‘Oxygène,,” says Adiescar. “It made me experience music in an entirely different way - it was a sonic journey, a discovery of sound, of audio sensations! His music helped spark my enjoyment in exploring synthesized sound, and along with a variety of other genres, was the foundation of my musical upbringing.”

Speaking about reworking the track with Jarre, she explains: “Listening to his album ‘Oxymore’ I got to continue on that sonic exploration, closing my eyes and really feeling the sensation of sound. When invited to rework a piece from the album, I felt a personal connection to the track ‘Synthy Sisters’ with his use of vocal sampling and bendy synth notes that some might hear similarly in my own pieces. To input more of my DNA into the track I added extra vocals, both operatic and ‘chest thumping’ - styles which I enjoy, some classical piano, strings, and additional ‘Adiescar’ flavored synths! Working with Jean-Michel and his team has been a joy. I felt there was a lot of trust in the musical process and feedback was always full of enthusiasm! It’s so amazing meeting people who honestly and truly love their craft and I’m honored to have been able to rework this track.”

The original “Synthy Sisters” track appears on Jarre’s album OXYMORE crafted as a tribute to the French roots of electronic music which has had a major influence on the music production of the genre over the years. OXYMORE is also an homage to the late French composer Pierre Henry, an iconic figure in electronic and classical music, and one of Jarre’s influences at the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) where he studied. OXYMORE was released in October 222. Conceptually it is his most ambitious and groundbreaking album to date, and the first commercial release of this scale which fully utilizes multichannel and binaural sound (spatial 3D). Jarre produced, composed, recorded and mixed in 360 degree audio in the "Innovation" studios at Radio France.
