More on Eliane Radigue

elaine.jpgFollowing on yesterday’s post… Here is a 2009 Leonardo Music Journal (vol 29) article on Eliane Radigue, “The Mysterious Power of the Infinitesimal” . You can download the article here: :: Introduction by Joel Chadabe ::

In the 1960s, Eliane Radigue began to move away from her earlier work in musique concrète as Pierre Henry’s assistant, with its focus on the juxtaposition of self-contained “musical objects,” and towards an exploration of sound as an evolution with subtle transformations.

… In a concert, her music floated in the air, coming from everywhere as music without a source, just a natural part of our world, just there, and without effort.

Live Stage: Triptych – The Music of Eliane Radigue [uk London]

eileen.jpgTriptych: The Music of Eliane Radigue :: June 12–26, 2011 :: Concerts at Christ Church Spitalfields and St Stephen’s Walbrook , London :: Sonic Bed Exhibitions at Rich Mix and Watermans, London

Sound and Music presents the first major UK retrospective of Eliane Radigue (born Paris, 1932), one of the major living figures in contemporary music.

Radigue studied with electronic music pioneers Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer and has been likened to American minimalists Terry Riley, La Monte Young, Steve Reich and Philip Glass, but her meditative works, often monumental in duration, have taken a singular path, transporting the listener on a journey into the very heart of sound.

These pictures, beside the historical and ethnographic interest, are strongly suggestive abstract pieces, and Wagstaff explained that the he had collected them to satisfy his own desire to contemplate and explore the “pleasure to see, as when we see people dancing from a window.” Continue reading

Cellular Automata in electronic music and sonic art

953323__727232828.jpgCellular automata in generative electronic music and sonic art: a historical and technical review :: Authors: Dave Burraston, Ernest Edmondsa ::

This paper will review electronic music and sonic art applications of Cellular automata (CA) in a historical and technical context. Algorithmic and computational processes have been of interest to artists for many years, creating an emerging culture of generative electronic art. Creating patterns and sequences is necessary for the creative artist working spatially and temporally within a chosen medium. CA are capable of a wide variety of emergent behaviours and represent an important generative tool for the artist.

The sonic artist and musician must be prepared to investigate the theoretical background of CA in order to successfully employ their vast behaviour space within compositional strategy. Continue reading
