Today we’re listening to Éliane Radigue, a French electronic music composer from Paris. We’ve featured Radigue twice before. Radigue was born in 1932 and, inspired by musique concrète and New York minimalists, became an early adopter and popularizer of synthesizers. Thread participants and resurfaced her work at an opportune time. In January she released a new composition, Occam Delta XV, a pair of transcendent, scintillating string pieces performed by Quatuor Bozzini. We’re also playing her excellent Trilogie de la Mort from 1993.
Have a great start to your week.
