TOMAGA is Valentina Magaletti and Tom Releen. They channel various forms of multi-instrumentalism into music that moves by turns through industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism, on it’s way to somewhere wholly other. Devoted to musical exploration, this London based duo obsessively deconstruct familiar tropes, looking for the tension that lies between improvisation and form.

Having been invited to tour with such musical luminaries as Wire, Deerhoof, Thurston Moore, FAUST, Lee Ranaldo and Silver Apples since their formation, TOMAGA are truly one of the finest live acts around.

In addition to this they have done collaborations with Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate (staging a performance using the artworks of Pedro Reyes), Musee D’art Contemporain De Lyon (contributing a sound object to the Yoko Ono exhibition ‘Lumiere De L’aube’), plus imminent collaborations with legendary French instrument maker Pierre Bastien for Supersonic Festival in Birmingham.
