Apollo Records present a masterpiece of ambience and beyond – °∆Calypso°« – the stunning new album by Venetian maestro Gigi Masin. The LP is inspired by the mythical Greek island of Ogygia and its alleged real life counterpart Gavdos – also known unofficially as Calypso – a place of extreme beauty, which upon visiting had a profound effect on the musician. °»Gavdos gives you profound sensations in every corner, as here you can find enchantment, mystery, the getting lost to forget, to erase and drown the memories in a light and salty water. A place new and ancient, between cedars that have seen exiles, pestilences, blood and desperation, isolation and abandonment, it°«s the absolute of a life that every heart in love seeks, desperately, in the arms of Calypso, divine among the goddesses. An infinite love, and the infinite horizon of our dreams°…, says Masin, eloquently. The aqueous and sky-filled vistas of his native Venice are deeply intrinsic, but the best and simplest way to describe °∆Calypso°«s sound might simply be Aegean, as every track takes you directly and vividly there – to timeless Greek beauty, glistening seas, picturesque landscapes and the sun°«s bright, balmy heat. But, much more than just pleasant dapples of twinkling of audio balm, °∆Calypso°« is music of the gods, goddesses and heroes, subliminally capturing all the celestial beauty, awe, romance and adventure of an epic saga. °∆Calypso°« marks a new phase in Masin's musical evolution after re-releases and retrospectives on the Music From Memory label and new releases with the Gaussian Curve trio alongside Jonny Nash and Young Marco. Aptly released on Apollo, Masin joins a label who count other classics like Aphex Twin°«s °∆Selected Ambient Works 85 - 92°«, plus Biosphere°«s °∆Microgravity°« and °∆Patashnik°« in its catalogue. Climbing in incremental steps to the pantheon°«s summit, Masin now is close to reaching his rightful place alongside giants like Brian Eno, Laurie Spiegel, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tangerine Dream and Midori Takada.
