Éliane Radigue is one of the most significant composers of the 20th and the 21st century in electronic music.
The specific project regards the creation of a vinyl record for the piece Transamorem-Transmortem. The way, music is composed, occurs entirely with the audio aid ARP 2500. The composer presents her music works under specific conditions. Μany times the works are presented in a room with four speakers and a few listeners; that is why her music is ranked in a kind of music performance. In her work, the listener creates his own reality regarding the essence of a music piece. She has embraced Buddhism, and that is the reason why her music is deeply influenced by elements found in the culture of the East, such as the reference made to the concept of death, the relationship between the mind and the body, the function of emotions and sentiments and many more. Although she composes a kind of music that is created through the use of technical objects, she aims at the body feeling the music that fades even before the mind perceives what really happens.
