On March 2017, on the occasion of the Festival Super Flux (Tours, FR), co-organised by Le Temps Machine and Le Petit Faucheux, the French artist Yves Chaudouët has been invited to exhibit his Batterie Fragile, a drum-kit made of porcelain, in the museum des Beaux Arts de Tours while Valentina Magaletti, drummer for Tomaga, The Oscillation, Vanishing Twin, Helm… has been invited for a gig of duet Tomaga in le Petit Faucheux.
Three ten minutes long improvisations resulted of the meeting between the amazing drummer and the fragile sculpture.
Recorded live in public, the experience required daring, inventivity and skills few drummers other than Valentina could have. The result is a great unlikely drumming performance on a unique instrument recorded and fixed for the first time, housed in a beautiful cover reproducing an original artwork of Yves Chaudouët.
10”, 45rpm, ltd edition of 300 copies. White vinyl. Postcard, insert and download code which gives access to both track + exclusive only Improv #1.
