MUSIC | GIGI MASIN PRESENTS ‘CALYPSO’

Date tbc

This event has been postponed to 2021 from the original date in March 2020 and rescheduled date of October 2020. We will announce the new 2021 date as soon as we have one. Thank you for bearing with us.

Colston Hall and Arnolfini present Gigi Masin; Italian ambient musician from Venice and one of the unsung pioneers of the Balearic chillout sound.

Venetian composer, musician, producer, and polymath Gigi Masin presents his new album: ‘Calypso’ – music of the gods, goddesses and heroes, capturing the celestial beauty of an epic saga. His beautiful ambient compositions will sail you across the Aegean sea to the rippling lagoons of Venice as you listen in the surround of Arnolfini.

Masin continues to be one of the most quietly innovative and singular artists in the scene. Having found a cult following for his debut 1987 album ‘Wind’ which captured gentle echoes of the Venetian landscape, Masin went on to have his track ‘Clouds’ sampled by Björk, To Rococo Rot, Nujabes, Black Eyed Peas, and Post Malone.

Over 30 years since his initial release, Gigi Masin is now receiving the artistic recognition he deserves. Refusing to be pigeonholed and continuing to make music that is “representative of the entire spectrum of emotions” (The Quietus), Masin’s beautiful and ambient compositions will sail you across the rippling lagoons of Venice as you listen in the surrounds of Arnolfini.
