I went to two concerts last week. Both connected to a large pile of nostalgia. First of all Jean-Michel Jarre performed his breakthrough piece 'Oxygene' on old analogue synthesizers. It was a beautiful concert, but I must admit it got a bit boring. There were five new pieces which were variations on the 30 years old Oxygene themes. However, it was too static and nothing much happened. It annoys me a lot when people in the audience does not focus on the performance, but chit chats along. These murmured conversations from the audience ruined my experience.
The second concert was very different. After 10 years absence 'Portishead' is making noise again. The show was highly fueled with a perfect mixture of old and new. A very welcome return!
