Eliane Radigue

Having grown up in Paris, Elaine Radigue married the artist Armand Fernandez (Arman) and moved to Nice in the south of France in the early 50s. Although she accepted an invitation to study under Pierre Schaeffer at the Studio d'Essai in the mid 50s, it was only after the breakup of her marriage that she moved back to Paris and started to work with Pierre Henry as his assistant to help with the recording of L'Apocalypse de Jean.

Having grown up in Paris, Elaine Radigue married the artist Armand Fernandez (Arman) and moved to Nice in the south of France in the early 50s. Although she accepted an invitation to study under Pierre Schaeffer at the Studio d'Essai in the mid 50s, it was only after the breakup of her marriage that she moved back to Paris and started to work with Pierre Henry as his assistant to help with the recording of L'Apocalypse de Jean. She moved to New York City in 1970 and took up residency at NYU Art School, where she made her synthesizer based compositions (Chry-ptus). She has worked almost exclusively with the ARP synthesizer since 7th Birth in the early 70s.

It was after meeting three visiting French students in 1974, who happen to be practising Buddhists, that Radigue decided to investigate Buddhism herself. She visited a centre for Tibetan Buddhist studies upon her return to Paris in 1975 and spent the next few years studying Buddhism. Radigue eventually returned to composition and completed the Adnos trilogy. A series of works were written in the 80s based on the life and teachings of the Tibetan saint Milarepa. Kyema, the first of the three works that comprise Trilogie de la Mort was inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Kailasha, which was started shortly after the completion of Kyema, is her imaginary journey to Mount Kailash. Koumé, which was composed after the departure of Radigue's Tibetan master, completes the trilogy. Radigue has more recently been invited to join the international laptop group, The Lappetites. « hide
