We've been heartened by the warm and enthusiastic responses we have received to the Triptych festival. It's encouraging to be reminded that there is a growing and dedicated audience willing to commit the focus that Eliane’s music requires, and that there is a desire on their part to share this work as a community of listeners. We would like to thank everyone who came to share the festival with us and particularly Eliane herself and all of the artists who presented her work with such commitment and skill during Triptych.
“Ethereal. Emotional. Breathtaking.”
“an extraordinary experience”
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so relaxed in my life”
“distorted time like dream-filled sleep. Could've been 40 seconds or 5 hours...”
“Absolutely overwhelming. One of the greatest composers of all time. It was a really emotional experience as well. Thank you so SO much for doing this retrospective.”
“a journey to an unknown destination”
“It was an astonishing feeling to experience so intimate a music (and such a quality of silence) with so many strangers. The programme seemed to be very much enjoyed by an audience which was not by any means made up simply of the usual suspects one might find on the experimental music circuit.”
“Meditative, transformative, ecstatic, life-affirming, astonishing, inspiring”
“Fascinating, meditative and absorbing. I completely lost track of time, which was an excellent and uncommon experience.”
“During the music playback, no lighting was used except the few votive candles that visitors to the church had lit. The performance started with bright midsummer light flooding through the windows; by the end at 10pm, we were sitting in a dark twilight – and the effect was wonderful.”
“Still a bit bowled over by tonight's Eliane Radigue gig. Early Feedback Work about a million years ahead of everyone. Just the best!”
“Went to hear some Eliane Radigue in a church last night and it was radical. My favourite music goes bzzzzzzzzzzzzzz worrrrrrrrrrrrr ohmmmmm”
“came home feeling that all music should be 84 mins long”
“gobsmackingly brilliant stuff. Not for the inattentive, mind”
"It felt like I was lying in a floatation tank on a plane that was taking off"
"The sound vibrates around your body - it felt like being massaged."
"At first the sounds felt like the noises a fridge makes, then it sounded like an orchestra tuning. Beautiful!"
"I came in tired and after 20 mins in the bed left super-relaxed and with a clear head. Really great."
"Absolutely mind-blowing experience"
"Very comfy and cocooning"
"Strange and unusual. I lay in it for about 10 minutes. Lovely at first...then felt a bit nauseous, then relaxed again..."
"Wonderful sensory experience!"
"Like lying asleep on a rocking boat"
"Good times on a drifting spaceship!"
