Vince Tampio Explores Extraterrestrial Atmosphere on Tides
Vince Tampio (pronounced: TAM-pe-oh) self releases Tides, a full length instrumental ambient jazz album. The music leans towards the sub-genre of dark ambient and features synthesizer and trumpet. Tides will be released Sunday, June 23, 2019.
Vince Tampio (M.Mus.) is a professional trumpeter, arranger, and composer based in Philadelphia, PA. He performs and arranges with the Philadelphia Jazz Project, York Street Hustle, You Do You, and is musical director of Phloyd - a Pink Floyd Tribute. “However much he may genre-hop, use exotic instruments or play with sound processing, those aren’t just gimmicks and his playing can stand on its own in a fine style. So too does his composing.” (Geno Thackara All About Jazz).
Tides is based on a composition of the same title from Vince’s first album, SYZYGY (2014). Using a tape machine, “Tides” was slowed down and its pitch lowered, yielding an album-length basic track upon which to reimagine, reorchestrate, and reharmonize. The resulting music transports the listener to a sprawling extraterrestrial world.
