Andrew Fletcher, Jean Michel Jarre and Daniel Miller are sharing their thoughts about the future(s) of music.

Born Andrew John Leonard Fletcher, also known as “Fletch”, he’s a founding member of electronic-teen-pop harbingers – later turned grown-up pop legends – Depeche Mode. Which makes him a legend (and an harbinger) too.
Daniel Miller |
Music producer and founder of Mute Records
The real genius/honcho/visionaire from the early days of UK new wave. He started his future behemoth company Mute Records literally in his mother’s house dining room – recording a Ballard-infuenced 7” as The Normal (“Warm Leatherette”, later covered by Grace Jones).

Jean Michel Jarre |
Composer, performer and music producer
A true pioneer in the field of electronic music: his 1976 masterpiece “Oxygène” is – for today’s music – like that monolyth in “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
A turning point (both musical and “visual”) without which there possibly wouldn’t be no Daft Punk, no Chemical Brothers, no Jus†iice. And he knows how to get the best from a fireworks’ show, too!
