JMJ is also highy involved into protecting the environment as a UNESCO ambassador since 1993 (on environment and education topics).
The collaboration with Jean-Michel Jarre started in the early days of making Scénic Vision, precisely on the acoustics and signal processing. The artist teamed up with the design team in order to shape the sound signature of the concept-car, following the idea of “caring for the resources” with a “less is more” approach with only 1 loudspeaker on each door and the soundbubble system on every headrest.
Scénic Vision sets the beginning of a close collaboration with Jean-Michel Jarre. The artist will be an ambassador of the Renault brand, working with the teams on future solutions to be included into the product lineup.
