Éliane Radigue, the First Lady of Drone!

Juruna Mallon | France | 2017 | 41 minutes | OmenglUT

Documentary film about Éliane Radigue, one of the few women in the field of electronically operated serious music. Her compositions work with seemingly endlessly stretched and layered tones and are attributed to the genre drone. The Frenchwoman, born in 1932, is a central figure in this field. The film condenses Radigue’s statements and examples of current discussions of her music into an intense sound meditation, hypnotic and clear-sighted at the same time.
