"Aero presents a barrier-breaking, non-linguistic and highly artistic promotion on how wind energy can play a role in ensuring a sustainable development for the benefit of our community," says NEG Micon, one of the main sponsors of the event. Jarre's previous landmark concerts include performances from the Pyramids of Egypt, the Acropolis of Athens and Paris la Defense and attracted huge audiences around the world. Aero is set to do the same, with the wind farm's 15 NEG Micon 750 kW turbines forming the artistic backdrop.
Jarre, who has enjoyed world fame as a musician and composer for the past 25 years, is a long time environmentalist and active supporter of fellow countryman Jacques Cousteau, who dedicated his life to nature protection. Before his death, Cousteau spoke forcibly in favour of wind power on several occasions, a cause also taken up by Jarre. Of his forthcoming concert, Jarre says: "The wind is playing the lead part, not only as energy, but also as carrier of sounds, images, messages and dreams. The wind carries birds, pollen -- but also smoke and pollution, the wind brings us in contact with all the worst and all the best -- the choice is ours."
