DAT Soundboard -> CDR -> dbPowerAmp -> FLAC

To celebrate the upcoming RIO Festival in Carmaux, your friend at Magmasystems is pleased to share the best bootleg of Present that I have ever heard.

This is from a DAT soundboard recording, and the sound is A+.

I received the CDR from a very devoted Univers Zero/Present fan several years ago, and I am grateful to him for sharing it with me.

Daniel Denis' drumming is off the charts in this recording.

Please support the music of Univers Zero and Present.

  1. Hello,

    If you prefer Rapidshare as opposed to torrents here's a link for this show in flac at the Zeuhl Music forum posted a few weeks ago. There is also another Present show from Wurzburg 2001.


  2. Hey!
    Where can I get a copy of that recording?
    I am Pierre Chevalier and I play the piano on that show, but a was not aware of any recording, so I'd be interested to have it for my personal archives!
