Oxygene Part 2
I find a certain charm in early electronic music. Analog synths tend to have an ethereal, VHS-like quality. Oxygene uses this quality to capture the spacy, sci-fi spirit of the then-young, burgeoning genre. It plays like the soundtrack to an epic journey into undiscovered territory (like electronic music in the 70s). Electronic music is often associated with dance, but this is a great example of the other side of the genre: the side often reserved for intellectuals interested in the boundless soundscapes that computers can create. Oxygene is that side encapsulated, a testament to the limitlessness of electronic music.
