In the beginning, there was a certain music that I wished to make. It was this particular music and no other.

It's like looking at the surface of a river. There's an iridiscence around the reefs, but it's never completely the same, according to the way in which you look, you see the golden flashes of the sun or the depths of the water. In a swimming pool you can see the reflection of the ripples on the bottom or have a vision of the whole and let yourself be carried away by what I call "dream gazing," or fix on a detail and make your own landscape. There you can make your own soundscape.


A portrait of Eliane Radigue, produced by the Austrian IMA (Institute for Media Archeology), which observes Eliane in her workspace, operating the ARP and talking about the process of composing and recording. Her stopwatch is nicknamed "nounours" :-)

French audio with English hardsub, 15 minutes

"Her music is a slow flux of dense sounds subject to imperceptible mutations. A timeless architecture of deep vibrations speaking not to the intellect or to hearing, but to the entire body. A music which is unsettling if one submerges oneself in it. A music that possesses the monumental subtlety of the movement of oceans." (source)

ETA 11/13/09: a reader of this blog, lurker, has kindly provided links to two of Eliane's recent releases, Triptych (1978) and Vice Versa, etc. (1970) Whoever uploaded these, thank you!
