Well-regarded French electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre and former CIA computer engineer and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden have come together to create a stunning techno track titled Exit. In a video with The Guardian, Edward Snowden calls it a “cultural project.” Jean-Michel Jarre describes the atmosphere of Exit as a “speedy techno track evoking the constant and hectic collection of data.”
Watch the video below for background on the track, and how The Guardian initially brought the two together. Conversation between the two distinctly intelligent minds show that Exit connects the discourses of technology and music with the values of culture and politics.
