Éliane Radigue

Around 1970, Éliane Radigue created her first synthesizer-based music at NYU at a studio she shared with Laurie Spiegel on a Buchla synthesizer installed by Morton Subotnick. Her goal by that point was to create a slow, purposeful “unfolding” of sound, which she felt to be closer to the minimal composers of New York at the time than to the French musique concrète composers who had been her previous allies.

Sequences - Benge

ARP 2500. We unfortunately didn’t get much of a chance to play with this beast, aside from getting it to play the Close Encounters Of The Third Kind sequence that it is very well known for. Really beautiful looking synth, with a tremendously complicated workflow, that we simply didn’t have enough time to wrap our heads around fully (especially with the Synthi 100 calling us from right across the hall. We had to choose our battles to a certain degree).
