Magma - Bourgoin-Jallieu - February 11, 2005

On DIME, here is a master recording of Magma from 2005 that is being shared by the man of many names, Mr. Urich21.

Bourgoin-Jallieu (France), SMAC Les Abattoirs
11 February 2005

source: MD audience recording

In 2005, played a series of 3-concert residencies; the first concert was just piano and voices; the second, the electric line-up performing instrumentally; and the third, the full band. This is from the series in Bourgoin-Jallieu near Lyon. I was quite pleased with the sound and, consequently, my recording - the icing on the cake for positively stupendous music. 2005 was really a great year for Magma ! Of particular interest is the version of "Kohntarkosz" (which, unlike the remainder of the concert, was played as a quartet, with only Emmanuel Borghi on keyboards), which wasn't played at all the other series. Enjoy !!
