Electronic Musician Gianfranco Pescetti Masterfully Reimagines Frank Sinatra
Electronic musician and producer Gianfranco Pescetti has been on a prolific creative streak, releasing a wide range of ambient-tinged electronic music that straddles the line between lucid dreaming and rhythmic meditation. One of his most recent releases is a grandiose re-imagining of the Frank Sinatra classic song “Fly Me to the Moon”.
“I was drawn to the beautiful, melancholic and nostalgic vibe of the original Frank Sinatra jazz standard that really resonates with me. It started out as an experiment to see if it could work as a dance track without losing some of its original vibe while giving it a fresh twist. I also decided to take a different approach and create an instrumental version which allowed me to expand and introduce new musical motifs. I also thought it would be cool to introduce it to a new audience. Plus, it has provided a refreshing break from writing my upcoming album which I am in the middle of.”
The Hawaii-based electronic musician is gearing up to launch a new album in the fall of 2023, preceded by three fresh singles, “Sundog,” “Clownspunk,” and “The Wake.” The Frank Sinatra cover “Fly Me to the Moon” is a stand alone single not to be included on the album.
Gianfranco Pescetti is an electronic musician who currently resides on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Hailing from the Tuscan Island of Capraia he previously lived in France for a few years before moving to the United States to continue his music career.
Pescetti draws inspiration from a diverse range of musical genres, including chill wave acts like Tycho, Aphex Twin, and Boards of Canada, as well as legendary artists such as Depeche Mode and The Cure. His sound has been favorably compared to Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Aphex Twin, and Jean Michel Jarre.
