‘Une idee du temps’ pays homage to Eliane Radigue and her unrivalled contribution to the electronic music genre over the past century. At 92 years old, she paved the way for independent producers. Armed only with a bold vision and her synthesiser – an ARP 2500 now housed in INA-GRM – which she affectionately refers to as her “partner”, Radigue created a distinctive sound that draws on her unique sense of acoustics, time and duration. ‘Une idee du temps’ is the first book dedicated to Radigue’s photographic archives and tells her captivating story through a series of portraits from over the years alongside images of her beloved instrument with an introduction text by Joseph Ghosn.
