Edition of 250 copies. Two pieces written by Éliane Radigue at the same period (2014-2018), one instrumental (recorded at the Philharmonie de Paris by Ensemble Dedalus) and the other for analog synthesizer (performed by Ryoko Akama).
In Eliane Radigue's work, we oppose electronic works (composed until the early 2000s) to those written for acoustic instruments. From 2002, the artist began a series of compositions, Occam, orally transmitted living music. In her own words, she fully realized what she had always sought to accomplish in her electronic works. The disc dedicated to him brings together two pieces that were written at the same period. One, Occam Hepta I (2018), for an instrumental ensemble (Dedalus) and the other, Occam XX (2014), for analog synthesizer (Ryoko Akama). If the means seem opposed, this concordance of time shows the deep unity that brings them together.
