Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen’s sprawling assemblage of twenty-eight feverishly divergent compositions from an unconscious interzone, fusing studio experiments, field recordings, and tonal spectra into something that by turns resembles musique concrete, imaginary soundtrack and library music.

The Shape Of The Dance

(Hands In The Dark - HITD030) LP $18.75 (Out-of-stock)

The instrumental, experimental tracks by this London-based duo are mainly improvised, evoking the freshness and diversity of the band’s impressive live performances. Spiralling polyrhythmic percussion performed with a range of materials, vibraphone, frenetic bass, organ and oscillators, all are complicit in a strange dervish-like swirl, striking a minimalist yet accessible tone. With Rick Tomlinson and Blutwurst.
