Notes: Jarre hosts a Swatch show in a small village.

The swiss company Swatch asked Jean Michel to conceive a special watch, the Swatch Musicall, with a special ring bell he’d compose. This little tune is the basis of the premiered song “Une alarme qui swingue” that is an early version of Chronologie IV and V. The CEO of Swatch joined his employees to this laser and light show in a small village called Zermatt. 100.000 people gathered the shows. This is the first of Jarre’s laser and light shows with no musicians.

Swatch later on would put money into Jarre’s Europe in Concert tour.
