The title track is a composition in the ambient style and an edited version of the music he produced for "Concert d'Images", an exhibition which contained photographs and selected objects from Jarre's concerts. The original plan was to release the album edit of the track as a promo
CDsingle, but those plans were abandoned. On vinyl recordand cassette tapethe title track was edited to only 20 minutes due to the lack of space on the formats.
Jarre utilised the unedited version as an ambient audience "warm-up" in the hours prior to the
Paris La Defenseconcert in 1990 (and also in many Concerts after this "First"), played on the specially installed public address sound system scattered throughout Paris for this event.
Early promos for the album had the title track named "Cousteau on the Beach", but was renamed later, because Jacques-Yves Cousteau thought beaches are an environmental disaster.
The last track "En Attandant Cousteau" was composed as the score to a documentary on the life of oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
