With Special Guests
Venetian composer, musician, producer, and polymath Gigi Masin has always been an innovator, his first experiments in the late 1970s were sound collages made while working for theatres in Venice, working with tape loops, field recordings, and turntablism. Experimenting with tape culminated in the release of his debut album Wind in 1986. Underappreciated on its release, Wind soon gained a cult following among late-night radio listeners, hearing these gentle echoes of the Venetian landscape. In 2014, Dutch label Music From Memory released Talk To The Sea, a retrospective of the past 30 years of Gigi’s output, favourites handpicked by label heads Jamie Tiller and Tako Reyenga. It marked the start of the wider recognition Gigi so richly deserved, receiving praise from the media. Gigi Masin continues to be one of the most quietly innovative and singular artists in the scene.
