GiGi FM's 'Magnetite' EP
Giulia Fournier-Mercadante aka GiGi FM has released her debut EP on Bambounou’s label, Bambe.
Hot on the heels of her debut album, Kiwi Synthesis Diary 21k and in the same week as her Resident Advisor mix, with boundless energy GiGi presents her latest release — the Magnetite EP.
Since her album was self-released, this marks GiGi’s first signed output. The relationship between herself and Bambounou is based on a common ground: a shared love of polyrhythmic tendencies and transcendental techno.
Among the 4 tracks on this record is ‘Senstronaut (MYO)’, the first GiGi has made entirely using an MYO motion sensor. The progressive layers were created using arm gestures, forging an immediate connection between her dance performance and music production.
Kinesiology forms one of the underlying themes of the EP. By extension, GiGi draws inspiration from dancing as a respons to the atomic vibrations of the universe, and considers the material which allows us to sense the kinetic force of Earth’s electromagnetic field, the mineral Magnetite.
