    Eliane Radigue - Trilogie de la Mort

    Born in 1932, Eliane Radigue is a French electronic music composer who started out as a student of musique concrete pioneer Pierre Schaeffer in the 1950s, and assisted fellow concreter Pierre Henry in the following decade. In the ’70s, she started working with the ARP-2500 synthesizer in a minimal vein, inspiring friends to encourage her to study Tibetan Buddhism, which she became devoted to in 1975.
