Jean-Michel Jarre recorded the album 'Oxygène' in a makeshift studio that he set up in his apartment in Paris, using a variety of analog synthesizers, a digital synthesizer, and other electronic instruments and effects.

Oxygène has been described as the album that "led the synthesizer revolution of the Seventies", and as "an infectious combination of bouncy, bubbling analog sequences and memorable hook lines".
