This week, we welcome Gigi Masin to the Dusk Dubs family.
Gigi was born in Venice, Italy on 24th October 1955, he has been part of the music scene since the early 70’s and a radio dj with the most important radio stations. From 1978 he has been establishing a collaboration with poet/writer Massimo Palladino, a venture that had been permitting to carry out many and wonderefull pieces for theatre, television, radio broadcasting, where music and voice walk hand in hand, challenging and provoking themselves as well.
Sounds, tapes, turntables, live electronics are the ground where scene music moves. As musician/director Gigi Masin had a lot of theatrical, cinema and musical collaborations. First solo album 'WIND' has been published in 1986. “LES NOUVELLES MUSIQUES DU CHAMBRE” for the Belgian label Sub Rosa (1989) with Charles Hayward, “WIND COLLECTOR” (1991) with Alessandro Monti. Recent works include “LONTANO” (2001) and “MOLTITUDINE IN LABIRINTO” (2003, with Giuseppe Caprioli) produced by Giovanni Antognozzi for Ants Records and much much more.
For this volume, Gigi presents to the listener a collection of records that are very close to his heart, whilst illustrating why he is held in such high regard amonsgt the ambient/electronica community as one of its leading musicans... simply fautless.
