“This album was written between February 2021 and July 2 at my grandparents’ house in Brussels, setting up a small studio.

The name Spaces of Silence echoes my constant tinnitus since 2018.Silence is the state I paradoxically find in music to keep this tinnitus from being heard.So each track, each composition, is one of the keys that allows me to find some kind of balance.This album is intended to express this concept of noise and silence using tapes, cassettes, background noises and field recordings. ”

Pont Neuf Records:

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."

Artist statement by Tour-Maubourg:

“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. the keys that allow 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."
