7/10 Clinton Staff review, 31 October 2013

Again, its time for a record review where the package is so nice we are not allowed to open it. This time its a three CD retrospective of Eliane’s ‘Adnos’ trilogy  which was  released between 1973 and 1980.  So off to the internet I go. Eliane Radigue, for the uninitiated (like me who has just had to google her) is a French electronic composer who used a single synthesizer and tape to create her minimalist compositions. The ‘Adnos’ trilogy was produced in the 1970’s and she converted to Buddhism after a group of visiting French music students suggested that her music was deeply related to meditation and she should give it a go.

The music is certainly meditative, consisting of a low end drone  which flutters and shifts with only the most subtle inflections.  Hugely relaxing work, its soft waverings are perfect for late night bedtime listening. Alas in the middle of the office on a busy thursday its been drowned out by Pearl Jam. Quite the disgrace. A classic of modern, minimal electronic composition the series has been lovingly repackaged on this 3CD set which is so stunning we daren’t even touch it.


10/10 Clive Bell Customer review, 23rd May 2014

Adnos I-III is actually a piece from 1973-74, but sounds like it was created next week. Eliane Radigue was exceptionally ahead of her time, and paid the price by being pretty much ignored in the world of early electronics. Finally today she is recognised as a godlike genius. Adnos performs the trick of shifting imperceptibly from one thing to another so you don't notice the shift has taken place. How does Radigue do this? Is it because she's a Tibetan Buddhist? For the rest of us non-Tibetans it's a glimpse of more bliss than we deserve.
