Edition of 300. Pressed on 'Coral Pink' color vinyl. 

Blume Editions:

"'Rotta', a work for percussion and electronics, draws upon Magaletti's enduring, exploratory pursuit of ecstatic ritualism through sound and joins her growing body of efforts, begun with 2020's “A Queer Anthology of Drums”, that encounters her working as a solo performer, among most challenging creative positions for an improvisor. Recorded in a single take within the nearly empty void of Cafe Oto in London, during late October of 2020 - one of a handful of months between the UK's first and second lockdowns - “Rotta” encounters Magaletti's occupying an explicitly experimental realm, weaving a remarkable tapestry of polyrhythms from behind the kit into the ambience of the room and further electronic interventions.

Deeply emotive and cathartic, drawing upon its title's double meaning in Italian - “broken” and “route” - the double side long piece displays intense virtuosity and direct, real-time immediacy, balanced against the unmistakable presence of vulnerability and risk; profoundly human and expressive cries sent through Magaletti's hands, amplified by skin, wood, and spun brass. Played against bristling textures of electronics, complex rhythms allude to the utterances of vocal language and speech, staggering and dancing toward deeper meanings that only the beat can express.

Belonging to the sinfully underrepresented discipline of solo percussion within recordings of experimental music - contemporary or otherwise - Blume Editions is thrilled to present Valentina Magaletti's “Rotta”, an immersive expanse of sonorous texture, ambience, and rhythm, cohesively bound at the borders of freely improvised noise.

Issued in a limited edition of 300 copies on 'coral pink' vinyl (Pantone170 C), with liner notes by Bradford Bailey, its deeply intimate sense of space, tension, and dynamics focus the lens on one of the most dynamic artists working today
