Gigi Masin

Venetian composer, musician, producer, and polymath. Gigi’s first experiments in the late 1970s were sound collages made while working for theatres in Venice, working with tape loops, field recordings, and turntablism. Releasing his iconic debut Wind in 1986, he is also best known for his work as part of Gaussian Curve, a trio with Jonny Nash and Young Marco.
