Francesco Tristano //

A new chapter of Francesco Tristano`s Idiosycratic dialogue between the acoustic and electronic world will be released in February 2011 on EP. A fistful of electronic experts has been invited to add their own musical language to the piano parts of the eponym track of the album:  from Berlin, Germany, Ostgut resident BEN KLOCK, from Kyoto, Japan, Techno Grand Master FUMIYA TANAKA, from Paris, France, electro joker ARK, and from UK, House beatprovider duo, TOM TAYLOR and PAUL WOOLFORD!

Your turntable is already shivering!

Praises on „Idiosynkrasia“</strong> :

People with formal classical training tend to have very restricted ideas about what music is, and can be very limited by that. I know people in the DSO [Detroit Symphony Orchestra] and their concept of perfection is basically to learn a written piece of work exactly. Francesco is a new kid with a completely modern approach. He has different influences. Most importantly, he has a desire to improvise, which is unusual for someone who was formally trained. It´s important that he has a great, wide-ranging knowledge of music he knows classical music, but he´s also heavily into electronic stuff, and the history of electronic music. He´s like me, I love everything as well, everything that´s great.

Francesco is the kind of artist that makes you  the think of composers from another era such as Herald Budd,Brian Eno,Ryuich Sakamoto & Juan Atkins I realize this is  a very interesting mix of artist I just mentioned but the music of Francesco is far from predictable and miles from his contemporaries,that’s if he has any to begin with.. I myself love this production which I personally think is a breath of fresh air…bravo to you Francesco you remind me of why it’s important to dream the dream’s of dreamers! Your music is breath of fresh air.

Carl Craig and Francesco. Enough said.


what can I say that you don’t already know… I love it…10/10

An absolutely beautiful piece of music that is head and shoulders above a lot of what is labelled so called dance music out there. Deep and cerebral and something i will be playing for a long time.


Francesco Tristano – Idiosynkrasia with Carl Craig out November 2010

Infine Music will release Francesco Tristano’s new album Idiosynkrasia this winter.

With the aim of “bring[ing] the piano into the 21st century,” Tristano recorded Idiosynkrasia with venerated producer Carl Craig at the Planet E Studios in Detroit. The celebrated pianist is no stranger to collaboration, with previous full lengths Not For Piano and Auricle/Bio/On featuring production input from Murcof and Moritz von Oswald respectively, and a number of live performances over the last year with the SHAPE project, alongside Craig and von Oswald.

Adopting a more traditional album format after Auricle’s duo of sprawling 20-minute arrangements, the nine track Idiosynkrasia continues Tristano’s “quest for an idiosyncratic language that is somewhere between acoustic and electronic.” As the teaser video below suggests, the core sound of the album will be the influence of Craig’s deep space treatments applied to Tristano’s acoustic piano. Audio snippets of album tracks “Mambo” and “Single and Doppio” point towards deep and dramatic transformations with experimental electronica accents, while title track “Idiosynkrasia” is a nod to more upfront dancefloor fare.

1. Mambo
2. Nach Wasser Noch Erde
3. Wilson
4. Idiosynkrasia
5. Fragrance De Fraga
6. Lastdays
7. Eastern Market
8. Single and Doppio
9. Hello-Inner Space Dub-

Infine Music will release Idiosynkrasia in November 2010.
