A life of passion for Music. Music of the soul, true and sincere, which knew a planetary destiny. But also the love an the pleasure of sharing hard-won knowledge, and transmitting his flame to others. This is that, the dimension of Jean-Christian Michel.
Over the centuries, only faith, passion and freedom have been the most powerful engines of inspiration and creativity.
a period when the distribution of commercial music is monopolised
by four or five firms, the Internet still retains its marvelous power
of information in its young tradition of freedom.
the multinationals of the recording industry sterilize creation by
imposing their artists on a public a little lobotomised by mindlessness
which every state sponsors through the media assuming its duty as
a general anesthetic. By agreements with these same media, these venal
consortiums thus deprive people of discovering other forms of expression.
That which is true for music is just as true for the other arts (litterature,
painting, cinema etc.) : To fill their pockets, 21st century traders
suppress qualitative creation.
The love of research and the discovery of authentic artistic riches is the privilege of a few : it rarely leads to sharing a dominant remote-controlled opinion, and to throwing oneself on the top 50 of the best sales per square meter..
That is why the Web is one of the last areas in which it is still
possible to distribute original material.
Let us hope with all our strength that the Internet remains this brilliant space of independence, a breath more difficult to enslave than this "Best of the Worlds", where "single thinking" and "good thinking", restrict a little more every day our freedom and our joy of living !
Jean-Christian Michel's concerts always arouse an immense interest and are always crowded everywhere. A second additional concert is often necessary to satisfy the audience.

LE CŒUR DES ÉTOILES
The albums above are our favorites with a 5 +++++ for Port-Maria. But you don't have to share our tastes, and can enjoy more other records : JQM with its magnificent choirs ; Ouverture Spatiale which was N ° 1 on Radio Monte Carlo for a year ; Ève des Origines, recorded with the well known pipe organ of the German Evangelical Church in Paris ; Musique de Lumière, described by the press as the most original album of the year, also extremely convincing with its modern and warm colors ; Live Concert, recorded in concert, rich in the energy transmitted by the live recording ; Vif-Obscur, with great and beautiful themes, including a concerto for bass slap : you can listen to an extract on the Biography page ; J.-S. BACH transcriptions, performed this time only with synthesizers.
Jean-Christian Michel's DVD opens the doors to a universe of global enchantment by making the composer's space music resound in the mysterious silence of galaxies and abysses of the cosmos.
The video shootings of live concerts, filmed in the silent darkness of the cathedrals, show a succession of overall plans of the musicians and the public, the expressions of faces of the virtuosos transported by their music, the furtive images of the hands of the concert performers on the keys and keyboards, the unusual intrusion of the camera into the bowels and the secret mechanisms of the liturgical organ.
This monumental futuristic clip, the most innovative video album of the year, opens up the marvelous realm of the imagination. The magnetic fluid of immensity infiltrates the musical universe of the clarinet player, and the conductive flow of music connects the powerful breath of the stars to the beauty of the melodies.
The filmed sequences recorded on Jean-Christian MICHEL's DVD are not compressed, with consequently an incomparable sound and image definition. In this album you will find completely new tracks.

and dream... Jean-Christian MICHEL reveals his comprehension of music,
tries to explain the "biological" genesis of music. He insists
on the necessity of magic in music and asks questions : Is there a great
and an unimportant music? Is music reserved for an inner circle ? Does
it contact all people? What is the daily responsibility of mankind before
his destiny ?
