French Music Legends Magma To Release EMEHNTEHTT-RÉ TRILOGIE Live DVD!

Performed in full for the very first time!

Paris, France – French music legends Magma will be releasing EMEHNTEHTT-RÉ TRILOGIE Live DVD in January 2017! The concerts were recorded live at Le Triton in November 2014 and feature the EMEHNTEHTT-RÉ TRILOGIE performed in full for the very first time!

Initiated in 1973, its composition beholds its whole fulfillment after more than four decades. It is the testimony of an unwaveringly timeless inspiration, of which the expectant present asserts itself beyond history. Connecting wide and contrasted scenes, it sets its coherence within its very dynamics, playing with chiaroscuro, between choral splendor, operatic jubilation and hurricane of spirits beyond graves. The different parts formerly scattered around are finally gathered in all their glory, finding their proper place in the grand scale of a now complete work, topped off with the bright blaze of a Grand Finale.

The two-disc DVD set features THE CROSSROADS OF TIMES, 115 minutes of conversations with Christian Vander on composing each movement of the trilogy (with English subtitles). Through a process of digging, expanding, anchoring and changing directions, his unique approach continues to propel Magma’s music forward.

Christian Vander’s Offering ‘Concert Triton 2013’ 2-CD/DVD Set Now Available!

Paris, France – Much to the excitement of Christian Vander and Magma fans worldwide, Seventh Records is releasing Offering ‘Concert Triton 2013’ 2-CD/DVD! In 1983, motivated by the strong artistic impulse to return to his “Coltrane” roots, with a sound that’s more flexible than MAGMA, Christian Vander created “Offering”; a new ensemble that focused on vocals, keyboards and percussion. More experimental, leaving a great part to improvisation, this group allowed musicians to explore new musical avenues.

Offering has remained out of the sight and hearing of the younger generations for the past 30 years. In order that they benefit, too, this wonderful “gift” that was “Offering”, Christian Vander and his musicians decided to celebrate this anniversary musically with candles glowing and a flame burning as bright as the first day. This initiative will delight all fans regardless of their ages…Galaxy Magma!

Magma Legend Christian Vander To Release Tribute To John Coltrane

10/10/2011 – Paris, France – Music visionary and Magma legend Christian Vander will be releasing a tribute to jazz innovator John Coltrane on October 15, 2011 – l’homme suprême .

“On July 17, 1967, time stopped. The great saxophone player John Coltrane left us. I was lucky enough to discover, at a very young age, an exceptional musician. The beauty, the spirituality, the strength, the softness, as well as the fragility of notes. The expression of that sound which spoke to me like a voice. From that moment on, he became my daily bread. Indispensable. No one can ignore the immensity of his visionary works. It still resonates in all of today’s musical productions, and certainly in those of tomorrow.

In 1997, I had a dream, a record, dedicated to John Coltrane. A child painted the sun on a white cardboard, and below that sun, he wrote a title in blue… John Coltrane l’homme suprême.”

Christian Vander

This CD was recorded in 2011, day after day, between July 17, the date in which John Coltrane departed, and July 21, the day on which his funeral was held. On each day, an offering, a musical, poetic gift, for him, was created in real time. On the 21st at midnight, the record was completed.

Featuring: Christian Vander, Stella Vander, Simon Goubert, Pierre-Michel Sivadier, Frederic d’Oeslnitz, Phillippe Dardelle, Isabelle Feuillebois, Herve Aknin, Marcus Linon, Sylvie Fisichella, Sandrine Destefanis, Julien Tessier

“For my work, it is still Coltrane who actually gives me the real material to work on, to be able to move on.” Christian Vander

Available October 15, 2011 – CD in DIGIPACK + 24 page booklet
