    Éliane Radigue: French born Éliane Radigue studied music under the pioneers of the musique concrète Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry. In the 1960s she worked as Henry’s assistant. The distinctive quality of her compositions are based on her constant work with the arp synthesizer to create drones lasting for several minutes. Despite of her long and productive creative period, which already lasts for four decades, she composes only a few musical pieces each year. Just recently, she started to compose especially for certain international instrumentalists. Her piece Naldjorlak for Charles Curtis is the latest work in this series, which was extended to a trilogy for Charles Curtis, Bruno Martinez and Carol Robinson and was then called Naldjorlak I, II, III. Radigue’s oeuvre is presented in art museums, galleries and the main festivals for electronic music worldwide.
