Gigi Masin

A multi-instrumentalist and author of slow, contemplative, and mainly quiet materials, Gigi Masin — a local of Venice, Italy and a longtime radio DJ — slowly generated a rapt following through obscure recordings like Blowing wind (1986), Les Nouvelles Musiques de Chambre, Vol. 2 (a divide record from 1989, distributed to This Heat’s Charles Hayward), as well as the Wind flow Collector (1991). “Clouds,” from the center release, gained interest as an example source for paths by To Rococo Rot (“Die Dinge des Lebens”) and Björk (“It’s inside our Hands”), aswell as Nujabes’ remix of Five Deez’s “Latitude.” In 2014, the upstart Netherlands-based Music from Storage label put together scarce and previously unreleased recordings from over the period of Masin’s energetic years. Titled Speak to the Sea, it had been initially released like a dual vinyl arranged and made an appearance on dual compact disc so that as an electronic download — both with extra materials — in early 2015. Around once, Masin was a part of a new documenting as one-third of Gaussian Curve. That group’s recording, Clouds, appeared on a single label.
