Magma: Felicite Thosz

Felicite Thosz is released! And it's absolutely beautiful. Don't expect to find the heavier, darker side of Magma here; as the title would imply, this is an incredibly joyful piece of music. The title track is 28 minutes in duration, subdivided into sections. The CD also includes one additional track, for a total duration of 32 minutes—so as CDs go, it's short, but very sweet. Here are some video clips of live performances of the piece:

And a special treat, for me, was finding this clip of Christan Vander playing his composition at the piano, rather than sitting at his drum kit where we usually see him:

  1. This is a superb Magma album, up there with MDK and K.A. The title track is a sequence of songs rather than a single piece but flows very well.
