Add Jean-Michel Jarre, world famous electronic music composer whose concerts involve casts of hundreds + light shows off the sides of buildings + acrobats + everything, together with Brian May, world famous guitarist of the rock supergroup Queen, and you get ...
"The French composer and performer Jean-Michel Jarre, known worldwide as one of the pioneers of electronic music, has visited the Observatories of Tenerife and La Palma in search of inspiration needed to complete the preparation of the concert "The Music of Stars". This important cultural event, informative and musical, which will stage the domes of Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (La Palma), is part of the activities of the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC) for the next 2009, along with the inauguration Gran Telescope Canarias (GTC)....
...Jarre's large outdoor concerts have a singular signature and are renowned worldwide for their impressive visual impact : he has a unique talent of integrating the landscape or the surrounding architecture into a spectacular scene without infringing upon the nature of the environment. He deploys state-of-the-art technology in lighting, lasers and fireworks, with local musicians, orchestras and choirs. He created spectacular events in landscapes accross the planet including Unesco World Heritage Sites - the "Millennium Concert" held in 1999 at the Great Pyramids of Egypt, The Forbidden City in Beijing. The skylines of Paris and Houston have also become scenes for his performances." For more, see http://www.iac.es/divulgacion.php?op1=16&id=535&lang=en
