Live

2016/10/24

Here is an experiment: today instead of watching the news for the night, I picked up a record I had not listened to for years, Live by Jean Michel Jarre.

Live, 1989

I had gifted it to a friend who passed away 10 years ago and I do not believe I had listened to it since then.

The kids were impressed by the music τo the point that they wanted to learn more about Jarre. So I headed over to YouTube and played the whole of the Huston 1986 concert (another album which I had not listened for years since I only have it on cassette). They were really fascinated by what they saw also. The laser harp and the circular keyboard made an impression.

Dad, he must be a super cool engineer!

I do not know about engineering, but design-wise he won their hearts out. We even got to listen to Ron’s piece (from Ronald McNair who was supposed to play this in space) which led to discussing about the Challenger.

Funny what feelings, forgotten memories and processes a forgotten CD can spark.
