TOMAGA – The Shape Of The Dance

Tomaga -The Shape Of The Dance

Lysergically loose and adroit psych explorations from TOMAGA, the London-based duo comprising percussion by Valentina Magaletti – who’s also the stickswoman for Raime – and electronics from Tom Relleen.

The Shape of the Dance is a strange beauty, taking the trippy examples of their first two albums, also issued by Hands in the Dark, down winding, bifurcating paths guided by finely honed instrumental instincts and artistic sensibility to feel out new forms and junctures of polymetric percussion and sticky synthetic dissonance.

Imagine a splinter sect of Gruppo D’Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza who caught St. Vitus Dance and were banished to mediterranean island, living in stone huts with only percussive objets and a freakish, prototypical synthesiser; you’ve almost got the measure of what these two are up to.
