Author Appreciation For Radigue

Niles Crane

Fresh meat, just joined today. I wanted my first thread to be devoted to one of my favorite artists; Eliane Radigue. Her earlier work is enriched in harmonics. I don't know what it is that is so compelling about her work.She inspired me to invest in modular synthesis. Is anyone else by Eliane with regards their modular units? I'd love to hear some examples.

oh - welcome to the forum w00t


abstraktor

I've been waiting and waiting for Adnos 1-3 to be re-released but no joy so far..Love her work, but it's too easy to create something that ends up a pastiche of it. hmmm.....


opsysbug

I love her much as well. Saw a live version of one of her acoustic pieces
last year. I think there is another thread around here about her somewhere.
Have you seen that amazing 30 min DVD doc of her work? I think it's on
vimeo but I bought a nice DVD from some small label...


Niles Crane

Great to see people into her work.

Here is an interview with K.F.W. for anyone of you who have not heard the interview:

I have only seen the first 14 minutes, opsysbug.

sandyb: Is this with your modular, it's sweet.

abstraktor: your correct, it would be easy to rape her sound, and create a weaker version.

Have any of you listened to Eleh?

construct09

Where can I buy her CDs?


Oldstench

Love love love Eliane. A true master of the 2500.
construct09, Amazon has plenty of her stuff. You could also check her out on discogs. http://www.discogs.com/artist/Eliane+Radigue


thetwlo

..a master!!! indeed.


Monobass

She has a strong following here. Great stuff. Gutted I was out of the country when there was the retrospective in London. Saw her play with The Lappetites on the GRM diffusion system a few years ago, was fantastic.


Niles Crane

Yeah, that retrospective looked like something special. I recommend boomkat for specialist music:

Mimaroglu is also a great store, run by Keith Fullerton Whitman.

I highly recommend Eleh if you have an interest in Eliane's work:

thanks.
a mixture of modcan, dotcom and some euro.

I also love Elaine and Pauline Oliveros


numan7

thumbs up another ardent admirer of radigues here!

cheers


cebec

She's a major inspiration of mine, too. I recently got Triptych and Trilogie De La Mort, which are both excellent.

Here's an album I did while I was under Eliane's influence:

I love her work. Being an ARP 2500 owner (before a house purchase ruined that!) I was interested from that point of view. What I like is that how she uses it is very different to how I or others have. It shows that they are just tools and it's all in the controllers hands.


Niles Crane

Cebec: Lovely work, cebec. Was this done with your unit?

Morley: What was it like owning it? That filter, the 1070 is it? Incredible filters. Would you be able to identify how she is using the machine, in your experience with it?


Morley

It was great! I had 2 at one point and my main one was a main cabinet and 2 wings. Superb sounding system. Funky and light but could also be big and dark. Much more interesting modules than say an equivalent Moog.
The multimode filter is excellent. 1047. Very sweet sound.
Alas, they became to expensive for me to justify keeping when I bought my house. That and my 1970's Buchla 200 went. waah
Lovely synths.
I get the feeling she was not keyboard based and set up relatively simple patches but carefully. She seems to really listen into the sound and find the subtleties. Very intense I think.


Niles Crane

Two?? Incredible. The 1047, yes, that's the one. Have you seen that video of her with the unit, yes? It's seems to be subtle changes, very intense listening like you said.


If you like Radigue I highly recommend checking out Hennix:

Morley

Yes, Great video.
Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Thanks, Niles! Yes, it was done with a few panels of Serge and a reel to reel tape recorder.


construct09

Just ordered this:

MindMachine

^ That is my favorite of all of her recordings. I like all of the discs equally on this release.


abstraktor

The Alga Marghen vinyl re-issues of Opus 17, Vice Versa and Feedback Works are in stock at Boomkat just now. Just thought I'd let folks know.
