éliane radigue

Éliane Radigue is one of the last centuries’ most important living composers. Having produced an extraordinary and extraordinarily influential body of electronic music between the 1960s up until 2002 (despite very little public acclaim or recognition during most of this period), she then turned to composing for and with musicians and acoustic instruments. In doing so, she has created a further body of music that draws on the sonority of her earlier work whilst extending it into new realms using a very particular methodology of oral transmission that allows for exchange ‘heart-to-heart’.

Over the five nights of the festival we will present nine pieces by Eliane Radigue (who turned 90 in January) including a brand new work for quintet commissioned by the festival — Occam Hexa IV. We are thrilled to be presenting more of Radigue’s music again after the extraordinary Occam Ocean for orchestra concert in 2017. Big thanks to Silvia Tarozzi, Julia Eckhardt, Deborah Walker, Nate Wooley and Enrico Malatesta and of course Eliane for being up for this. These pieces will open each night at Fylkingen.
