Prosegue fino al 2 luglio la serie di otto concerti dei Magma in programma a Le Triton, Les Lilas a conclusione dell'edizione di quest'anno della rassegna Les Tritonales. Da questi concerti verrà tratto il dvd conclusivo della saga magmiana Mythes & légendes, privilegiando il materiale non documentato nei quattro precedenti volumi, tutti relativi a registrazioni del 2005, scelto tra Attahk (cioè Rétrovision), Riah Sahiltaahk, Dondaï, Félicité Thosz, Slag Tanz e Maahnt. La formazione attuale comprende Christian Vander, Stella Vander, Isabelle Feuillebois, Hervé Aknin, Bruno Ruder, Benoit Alziary, James Mac Gaw e Philippe Bussonnet.

Eight hours of music, four separate two-hour concerts. This was the challenge Christian Vander laid down to his musicians in January 2005. They picked up the gauntlet and ran with it. Full houses for three weeks representing the essential repertoire of the mythical Magma: Myths and Legends-35 years of music. The concerts were filmed and 4 dvds, Epok 1-2-3-4, were released between 2006 et 2007. But Magma’s audience is predominately young, born mostly well after the formation of their favourite band. They want to hear that stuff live at last. This year the Triton welcomes Magma back for a 'résidence' during which they assembled more than an hour’s worth of material composed between 1971 and 1979 which did not appear on the 4 Epok disks. The result can be heard over the series of 8 concerts at the Triton which will be fimed to complete the dvd collection Mythes & légendes.
