From spearheading France’s jazz-house and electronica scenes, to amassing millions of streams for lauded tracks such as Ode To Love, Manhattan To Brooklyn and Artifice, Tour-Maubourg is a flag bearer for modern French electronic music. Reminiscent of St Germain from
years gone by, his maiden album – Paradis Artificiels – received critical acclaim upon its release
two years ago.

Now, his new album Spaces Of Silence continues in such a vein, representing a tribute to his home country of Belgium and embodying a year long journey into deep, musical solitude.

“I composed this album in Brussels at my grandparents‘ house between February 2021 and July 2022 where I set up a small studio. I saw it as a return to my personal roots, as it was the first time since I left Belgium in 2013 that I found myself composing here again. I took advantage of this period away from the overflowing Parisian atmosphere and away from the people I loved who I’ve been around for seven years, to be truly alone with my music.

The name Spaces of Silence echoes the tinnitus that I have had permanently had since 2018. Silence is a state that I find paradoxically in music, one that allows me not to hear this tinnitus. Each track – each composition – is therefore one of the keys that allows me to find a certain balance. I composed this album with the intention of expressing this notion of noise and silence using tape, cassette, background noise and field recordings.“ – Tour-Maubourg.
