Great electronic music videos - Souvenir de Chine

    I've always been a fan of Jean-Michel Jarre, at least of his earlier work. He invokes great emotion in his synths. Souvenir de Chine stands out in particular.

    The chronology of recent Chinese history and culture. The clash of traditional ways with the modern. The cognitive dissonance surrounding competing socioeconomic ideologies. An idiosyncratic mix of modern capitalism and state collectivism. A people once so inured in isolation now the centre of trade and diplomacy. The People's Republic of China, a country founded on a tragic ideology, is now one of the world's largest and fastest growing economies. While it has embraced many market reforms, their government still maintains a tight grip of political activities, trade unions, and critical economic sectors. As much as they may be criticized or mocked, they are emerging as a world superpower. For all the hardships the Chinese have had to endure, regardless of how one views their government or geopolitics, their tenacity at the very least can be admired. I feel the music video offers a glimpse into a world that is often considered alien to westerners - myself included.

    Some background: Jean-Michel Jarre was the first Western pop artist to perform in China since after the Cultural Revolution.
