A pioneer of electronic music, Éliane Radigue is a leading figure in the experimental music scene. For more than a decade, Radigue worked on OCCAM OCEAN (2011 – present), a cycle of instrumental works composed in close collaboration with a group of performers whom she calls the Knights of Occam (comprising Carol Robinson on bass clarinet, Hélène Breschand on harp, and Louis-Michel Marion playing double bass). Using very fine-grained tones, she creates an atmosphere of semi-consciousness, that eludes acoustic references and approximates a state of a ‘waking dream’. The music is radical, but welcoming, inviting listeners to share a rarefied perception of time and vibration that reaches deep into the psyche.
Éliane Radigue’s initial inspiration for the OCCAM OCEAN cycle was a large mural in the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History. It showed the ‘spectrum of electromagnetic waves’ moving from the largest to the smallest of known measurable wavelengths.
