IMAfiction Portrait #04 | Eliane Radigue

A portrait by IMA [2006]

Eliane Radigue has composed electronic music since the sixties. She is the only French woman composer of her generation who can be considered to be a pioneer of this genre, and of minimal music as well.

“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. Emmanuel Holterbach” (Emmanuel Holterbach) Translation Leslie Stuck
