The electronic pioneer on being inspired by his young collaborator.

Over his recent releases, Jean-Michel Jarre has collaborated with a vast number of artists spreads over genres, countries and generations. On Electronica Vol. 2: The Heart Of Noise, he linked up with Los Angeles pop-surrealist Julia Holter for the pulsing, beautiful ‘These Creatures’ and now you can learn about the song from both performers’ perspectives.

Jarre holds nothing back in his praise of Holter, calling her “a futuristic angel” who is “somewhere between Björk, Kate Bush and Laurie Anderson” while comparing her work to musique concrète.

Watch the video above and revisit our recent interview with Jarre.
