Kyema, Intermediate States

Eliane Radigue

compact disc

1990

The first part of Radigue's Trilogy De La Morte, this work is a series of continuous electronic tones which beat and modulate over time. The composer's interest in Tibetan Buddhism chimes the similarity here to the horn tones of Tibetan religious ritual.

Structure

Radigue writes long meditative pieces which can at first seem abrasive but which on further listening start to exert their own logic. A brief suspension of disbelief results in a surprisingly rich and varied sound experience.
