Vinyl

On the May-tour in Europe some people asked where to get hold of Watch It Watch on vinyl. It is now for sale via UK based Norman Records. Here’s what they say about it:

 

“Yet to perform in the UK, Il Tempo Gigante has gained a reputation for putting on an impressive live show. Shying away from traditional song structures, ‘Watch It Watch’ is an intricately handmade, understated and utterly engaging album of hypnotic compositions which draw the listener into it’s unusual world through various, compelling movements that have an instinctive, spontaneous feel to them.”

Digital release, new video on nbhap and upcoming tour

Dear all,

I’ve had a wonderful summertour, and now already in less than a week from now, the falltour will begin. I will be going further down south this time to southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria and I’m very much looking forward to meetings with all of you – new and old faces -within the music. With 25 gigs in little less than a month (thank you Florian!) ending in one of my favorite places to be at the moment, I feel like a very lucky man.

The new album Watch It Watch is finally available worldwide on digital medias e.g. on Itunes:

https://itunes.apple.com/dk/album/watch-it-watch/id917199842?l=da

I have now started cooperating with a new small danish label called Resonans. They are very kind people, and will, by hand, help me to custom-make, art design and ship a very limited edition (LP, 200 copies + CD, 50 copies) of the new record on vinyl and CD out to you (from mid October):

http://resonansmusic.dk/

And finally my new little music video (which was shot by the very experienced and steady hand of Mr. André Andersen http://www.andre.dk/ ) is featured on nbhap. It’s shot in one take (the last of the day, take five) with no cutting or editing (for those who care about such details, I should mention that the guitar-mic ran through a tape-delay machine). I hope you will enjoy listening to the song as much as I did singing it :
