Boomkat Product Review:
Current GRM director François Bonnet a.k.a. Kassel Jaeger pays homage to Eliane Radigue on the first in a series of works inspired by and dedicated to the important French minimalist composer.’s groundbreaking recordings of the late ’60s and early ‘70s.
On Retroactions, Jaeger adapts and modernises Eliane’s original feedback techniques, using 6 microphones and 10 speakers in an attempt to extend her exquisitely disciplined gestures. The result is four mesmerising durational studies executed with a glacial patience and acute sound sensitivity worthy of Jaeger’s pioneering muse.
