Eliane Radigue - IMA Portrait documentary



 

Eliane Radigue

Her life journey has been remarkable. At the end
of the fifties, she studied in Paris with musique concrète pioneers
Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry, whom she also assisted, notably for
the premiere of L'Apocalypse de Jean. During the sixties she began
composing with primitive electronics (feedback and asynchronous tape
loops), but found little recognition for her research in France.

In
New York in the early seventies, she found understanding and emulation,
exploring emerging minimalism with James Tenney, Charlemagne Palestine,
Phillip Glass, John Gibson, and Steve Reich. Her absolute allegiance to
electronic sounds began during this period. Since then she has composed
on the best synthesizers of the time: Buchla, Moog, Serge, and then
ARP, which would become her fetish instrument. She collaborated with
Robert Ashley, who sang on Les Chants de Milarepa. She has composed
about two dozen works, which she has presented and continues to present
at numerous prestigious venues and festivals in the United States and
Europe.

In 2004, upon Kasper Toeplitz´s request, she started
instrumental compositions for one or more performers, with whom she
works in a close collaboration during the compositional process. This
work gets quickly focused on pure acoustic sounds, in an incredibly
delicate timbral way, which extends, without aesthetic rupture, her
electronic work. Notably between 2004 and 2009, she completed a cycle in
three parts "Naldjorlak", for Charles Curtis on cello, Carol Robinson
and Bruno Martinez on basset horns. She has now stopped her electronic
work.
