87 year-old Éliane Radigue is a trailblazing French electronic composer. She worked
with modular synths but decided to take a new direction in the early ‘00s and compose
for acoustic instruments. Composer Frédéric Blondy asked her to write for an orchestra,
which took some convincing due to the enormity of the task. Ultimately she was
convinced though, taken in by the rich sound of the orchestra, and Occam Ocean 2 is
the result, performed by the 34 person strong French orchestra ONCEIM (translates to
Orchestra of New Musical Creation), led by Frédéric Blondy.
