IMAfiction portrait #04 09 - Eliane Radigue

Recommended Posts

Eliane Radigue has been composing electronic music since the 1960s . She is one of the most important and innovative composers of the 21st century. As the only French composer of her generation, Radigue can be described as both a pioneer of electronic music and minimal music.

Her music resembles a slow current that moves through dense, barely perceptible sound changes. A timeless architectonics of deep sounds that appeal not only to the mind or to the hearing, but to the whole body. A music that carries you away as soon as you immerse yourself in it. A music that has the enormous subtlety of the sound of the sea. Emmanuel Holterbach (Translated from the English by Gina Mattiello)
