Gaussian Curve

Articles from a variety of online sources. Words by SOTU



In the spring of 2016, Gigi Masin, Jonny Nash and Marco Sterk got together in the studio for the first time since they recorded Clouds, the critically acclaimed debut album from their Gaussian Curve project. Clouds has become one of the most admired ambient albums of the 21st century.

Whereas Clouds was intimate by design, The Distance reflects more on spaciousness, distance and time. It is instantly recognizable as a Gaussian Curve record, but feels different in scope and tone.

The Distance is a different musical beast to its predecessor, but shares the same timeless, emotion‐rich feel that made Clouds such a hit.

While the fundamental ingredients remain the same – Masin’s masterly piano and synthesizer work and Nash’s blissful, meandering guitar.        


The Distance is out now via Music From Memory  – buy from Boomkat and Mr Bongo.
