Gianfranco Pescetti: The Wake
(Independent / 20 April 2023)

Electronic dance music blends into an atmospheric treatment with an introspective edge in The Wake. The new single comes from electronic music composer and producer Gianfranco Pescetti.

The instrumental track ebbs and flows in intensity, and he uses a web of layered sounds to achieve a varied sonic flow that retains an overall sense of composition and direction.

A native of the Tuscan Island of Capraia, composer Gianfranco Pescetti lives on the Hawaiian island of Maui today. He comments in a release.

"In writing "The Wake," I sought out to create an instrumental piece that explores the theme of melancholy for a time past, death, and new beginnings. The title has a dual meaning, referring to both the practice of mourning and the path left behind by a boat, a symbol of movement and progress."

Since I can remember I've always approached music from a place of fantasy, emotion, and escapism and while I draw inspiration from various electronic styles, my focus now is on creating a sound that is personal and evocative, rather than adhering to a specific genre/technical approach."

Gianfranco is releasing the single in advance of an album release later this year.
