Serge Teyssot-Gay and I recorded my piece GEORG at the GMEM studio in Marseille. A great experience that finished with a concert at MUCEM, in the Propagations Festival. Our engineer Christophe Hauser did a beautiful job of capturing the essence of the music. CD on the way…

Fairplay, a collective of creative female musicians, had the interesting idea of making an album of interactive compositions called INCLUSIVES. I was one of the principal composers and invited Violaine Lochu and Elise Dabrowski to join me on the project. They each added their own inspiration to my original composition, resulting in three new pieces.

In 2019, Éliane Radigue was awarded the Giga-Hertz Prize from the ZKM in Karlsruhe.

One of the only countries in Europe allowing concerts last spring was Luxembourg. Hélène Breschand, Louis-Michel Marion and I had the great pleasure of performing works by Éliane Radigue, as part of Leonor Antunes’ installation “joints, voids and gaps” at the extraordinary MUDAM. Strict health regulations lead to the invention of a very stylish mask that allowed me to play the bass clarinet!
