(5 out of 5 stars)

"Radigue's sonic investigation into life, death, and life elsewhere after death is incredibly captured in these 3 discs. Beautiful for huge, long journeys and quiet nights alone."

"i use this album to massage my brain after troubling or draining experiences

i don't think any samples will do this justice - it's one long moving current of sound that takes you on a journey

i find it to be very SOBER music as well - too often i have found that the most 'far out' music in an unconventional sense (such as the present work) is understood to be drug music or music to be used as a background for drug experiences

i don't know whether the composer uses or has ever used drugs but without knowing her, knowing only her music, i'd be much more inclined to guess that she is a meditator and not a drug user

there's just a sort of somber, realism to these works

it is at once otherworldly and yet so familiar on a human level, especially if one is familiar with the traditional music and voice of tibetan monks

this is introspective, contemplative, lonely music

i think all her pieces tell a narrative story but i don't focus on the details of that, i interpret the sound with my own meaning and for me it's basically successive stages of deep contemplation

this is her best album, i think

jetsun mila is also very good, but this is more expansive

i don't like her album "songs of milarepa" very much due to the voices reciting texts - they're too light and bouncy for the surrounding pulsating drone of the composer's electronics

i have lots of theories regarding music based on how i experience it, one of them is that music is basically encoded dreams - that the composer and performer encode their state of mind into their composition and performance and to identify (i.e., "like") the music, one has to tap into the same dream. in this sense, there are varying types of dreams that belong in all categories. i try to find the most sublime dreams, which i think eliane is having here. this is music you could imagine buddha making if he was a musician - that sort of thing."
