When two ex-Chausse Trappe and two members of Papier Tigre and La Colonie de Vacances got together mid-2017 to try out some of Meriadeg Orgebin’s ideas, it soon became the band Spelterini. Named after the tightrope artist Maria Spelterini, their music is always on the edge, tense yet flexible. They make their own fabric based on minimalism, drones, feedback and every accident,
break or any other part is captured by the band and fuels the creative process, reenacting each performance and enhancing their direct approach. The band is already a remarkable touring act with acclaimed performances at the Levitation festival in Angers and everywhere in France. The band’s first release Pergélisol / Chorémanie will be released on September 20th, 2019 on Kythibong records in France (vinyl LP) and Mascarpone Discos in Spain (cassette tape). Two sides, two pieces, two moments, two methods. A «split» between two facets of the band.
Born from the first year of in camera rehearsals, ‘Pergélisol’ comes from Spelterini’s live repertoire. This version was captured on the spot by Manuel Duval at La Grange cavale in June 2018. ‘Chorémanie’ is a collage game made up of oppositions, repetitions and break-ups, whose composition is purely the result of the recording process.
