I have just listened to a recording of Slag Tanz from the recent concerts at the Alhambra in Paris. Vander has added about 5 minutes onto the piece, and the tune now clocks in at over 16 minutes.
When Magma first started playing Kohntarkosz on stage in 1973, they would change the piece ever few concerts. Of course, the first version of Kohntarkosz sounds nothing like the final studio version.
But, I am wondering if we are about to enter an exciting time with Magma when we can sit back and watch the compositional process unfold around Slag Tanz. Will Vander add more nuances to the piece every few weeks?
