Radigue at 90 Conference - Contemporary Music Review Journal Release and Symposium
For over 60 years, the prolific French composer Éliane Radigue has remained unflinchingly
dedicated to crafting her own artistic voice, operating largely outside of official and institutional
channels. Her extensive creative output spans the worlds of sound art, concert music, and
recorded media. Beginning with her early electronic music created at the Studio d’Essai through
to her recent practice of creating unscored collaborative works with internationally-renowned
soloists and ensembles, Radigue has remained tirelessly dedicated to the monumental task of
exploring the impalpable aspects of sonority.

In 2023, Contemporary Music Review will release a special issue celebrating Radigue’s
extraordinary career and output of creative works. To supplement this issue, we are pleased to
announce a two-day symposium at Columbia’s Global Center in Paris that will feature papers
published in that journal, concert performances by Radigue collaborators, as well as new
scholarship in the field.

Artists and scholars are invited to submit proposals for papers of 20-30 minutes in duration. We
would particularly welcome proposals that address the following themes in regards to
Radigue’s music: collaboration, authorship, embodiment, performativity, listening, and rupture,
though all proposals will be considered. We welcome cross-disciplinary scholarship from music
and other fields, as well as proposals for scholarship outside of traditional academic disciplines.

All submissions are due on or before February 10th, 2023; We will announce accepted proposals by February 17th, 2023.
Submissions may be sent to: radigueat90conference [at] gmail.com
