Eliane Tapes is a new series on Moving Furniture Records. All the music in this series is dedicated and/or inspired by the works of Éliane Radigue.
With her groundbreaking work already in the late 60’s and early 70’s Eliane Radigue created a path for many other musicians in the field of minimalism and drone music.
To celebrate the amazing work she has done, and still does, we ask musicians to create works that are inspired by her work and as such are a dedication to her.
ET01: Kassel Jaeger – Retroactions
The first release for Eliane Tapes is by Kassel Jaeger.
For Retroactions Kassel Jaeger created “studies” trying to extend the gesture Eliane Radigue did with feedbacks, with a different and more “hifi” setup than the one she used at the time.
In 4 studies he experiments with different feedback setups, controlled, non-controlled, processed and non-processed. He worked with 6 microphones and 10 speakers, feedbacks.
