Éliane Radigue’s Music Without End

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Composer Éliane Radigue’s works, built around silence, focus, and extended periods of time, stand in stark contrast to the modern Western societal values of speed, efficiency, and accumulation. (She has called her work “sonic propositions,” as highlighted in the recent documentary Sisters With Transistors.) It’s by no means background music—these are dense, carefully constructed vibrational pieces that ebb and flow through almost imperceptible tonal changes, commanding a focused listening approach. For those willing to embark on the journey, it is a highly immersive and rewarding experience.
