Editorial Reviews

Double CD of all 5 of Radigue's songs in tribute to the Tibetan saint and poet from the eleventh century. Two of the tracks date from an 1983 LP (Radigue's first release), two are previously unreleased and the final 62-minute track was previously issued as a sole CD in 1987. The material is performed by Radigue (synthesizer and recording), Robert Ashley (English voice) and Lama Kunga Rinpoche (Tibetan voice). Radigue was born in France and has studied under Pierre Shaeffer and Pierre Henry; her musical has an extremely organic and mystical electronics vibe, and has been previously documented on Phill Niblock's XI label, as well as Metamkine and Lovely.

Milarepa is a great saint and poet of Tibet who lived in the 11th Century. Through years dedicated to meditation and related practices in the solitude of the mountains, Milarepa achieved the highest attainable illumination and the mental power that enabled him to guide innumerable disciples. His ability to present complex teachings in a simple, lucid style is astonishing. He had a fine voice and loved to sing. When his patrons and disciples made a request or asked him a question, he answered in spontaneously composed free-flowing poems or lyric songs. It is said that he composed 100,000 songs to communicate his ideas in his teachings and conversations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best January 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
i am a big admirer and enjoyer of "jetsun mila" and "trilogie de la mort" which both deal with similar concepts, however they do so without the spoken word

the lama on this album sound OK but robert ashley sounds terrible. note: i have no idea who he is and don't really care - he sounds like he has a cold and his voice ruins the recording. picture it - somber, eerie electronic sounds pulsating in the background, and someone with a cold and goofy accent poorly translating the melodic singsong style narrations of a tibetan monk

it comes off as a bit of a joke ... she should have had someone with a more serious voice recite

better yet ... get rid of the voices all together and let's hear the pure electronics like her other albums which are wonderfully dark and meditative, like the vibration of a monk's dark retreat room
