More Info:

London based Valentina Magaletti, is a composer, producer and percussionist experimenting with new materials and sounds. She is one of the most prominent musicians of the wide experimental world. The prolific drummer collaborates with many musicians and releases albums in all musical directions (from noise to jazz by way of dub...). She was part of the acclaimed duo Tomaga until the tragic passing of Tom Relleen in 2020. Lately Valentina Magaletti collaborates with Joao Pais Filipe, Lafawndah, Marlene Ribeiro, Julian Sartorius among many others and she is part of bands like Vanishing Twin, Better Corners, Holy Tongue, UUUU, Avvitagalli, Moin... The Batterie fragile is a sculpture conceived by artist Yves Chaudou√ęt. A drum-kit made out of porcelain. To create this new album, Magaletti says, "I applied wood and metal and rubber to the porcelain. My starting point is always textural, and I'm very interested and enchanted by friction." An important work in the career of one of the best drummers and composers of her time, which Un je-ne-sais-quoi is proud to share with you.
