quinoxe (English: Equinox) is the fourth studio album by French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre, released in December 1978 on the Disques Dreyfus record label, with license to Polydor. Jarre had developed his sound, employing more dynamic and rhythmic elements, particularly a greater use of sequencing on basslines. Much of this was achieved using custom equipment developed by his collaborator Michel Geiss.

Like its predecessor, Equinoxe is widely regarded as a classic within electronic music, which to date has sold around ten million copies. Stylistically Jarre carries on the underlying concept of Oxygene, creating a dreamlike musical universe built around melodic passages and futuristic sound experiments.

Album · 1977 · 3 Songs. Jarre doubles down on the approach of his previous classic, Oxygène: The tunes are more intensely rhythmic, the synth lines even richer and more atmospheric and the graceful melodic structures recall the symphonic flow of Jarre's famed film-composer father, Maurice.

Jean-Michel Jarre has announced that he’ll release a new album later this year. It’s titled Equinoxe Infinity and is the sequel to Jarre’s 1978 album Equinoxe. It’s set to arrive on November 16 – almost 40 years to the day since the original album launched. The cover was designed by Filip Hodas, which puts a fresh spin on the original cover artwork.
