This album is dedicated to the following people
without whom OXYGENE would have never existed:
Pierre Schoeller who taught me evrything in electro-acoustic and electronic music.
Peter Zinovieff who conceived the first europen synthesizer and my first one: the VCS3.
The dutch copmany, Eminent, who built the fantastic string ensemble Eminenet 310.
Alan R.Pearlman who created the ARP 2600 & ARP 2500.
Les Bradley who developped the Mellotron.
Ikutara Kakehashi, founder of Roland, who gave us the Minipop and so many other marvels
Mike Matthews who imagined these crazy peadals such as the Small Stone and the Electric Mistress.
And my friend Robert Moog for obvious reasons
