Italian artists Tempelhof (Luciano Ermondi and Paolo Mazzacani) and Gigi Masin team up again for a new album, two years later the release of Hoshi. Tsuki will be out June 10th via Cascine and Hell Yeah. “Corner Song” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
Tsuki is an exploration in ambience – soundscapes that are both classically informed and contemporary, with echoes of minimal Japanese electronic and world music. Some material is floating and beatless, while other is driven by distant dustings of percussion, twinkling keys, delicate electronics and wordless vocals. Together, Masin’s and Tempelhof’s chemistry is organic and elegant, making for a work that while adventurous, is honest and emotional.
