Glass Museum shares second track ‘IOTA’ from upcoming album

Posted on 18/03/2020

Glass Museum is the Belgian instrumental duo formed by musicians Antoine Flipo (synths) and Martin Grégoire (drums). They combine pure traditional jazz with orchestral arrangements and the mathematical nature of modern electronic music. Their second album 'Reykjavik' will be released April 24th via Sdban Ultra.

IOTA is the 2nd track they share from this album. « IOTA » is a french expression that could be translated as “an insignificant amount of something”, symbolically meaning something light, simple and obvious. It was the last track composed for the album, based on long sessions of improvisations during a residency back in 2019, just before the recording session.

After many hours of research on electronic sounds for the album, Glass Museum wanted to come back to something more fundamental: an acoustic composition with piano and drums, spontaneous and without artifices. By closing the album ‘Reykjavik’, IOTA opens new doors to sunny regions, inviting the listener to discover new oriental flavours.

Glass Museum also recorded a beautiful live version. For this live session they invited Pierre Spataro, Commander Spoon’s saxophonist, with whom they’ve already collaborated live on the track ‘Tribal Coffee’.
