More Info

Das mexikanische Projekt mit dunkler, melancholischer Electronika, wo sich klassische Instrumentierung mit subtilen Rhythmen vermhlt. Hat etwas stark melodramatisches, Filmmusik-mssiges, slo-mo Sehnsucht, und ist perfekt produziert. Knnte auch Freunden von BIOSPHERE oder PAN AMERICAN gefallen...

As Murcof, composer Fernando Corona creates some of today's most captivating music being made, in any genre. For several years he has combined musical styles in wholly new ways, adding emotional depth to robotic minimalism and under the name Terrestrefunk, brass to techno. His innovative approach reaches new heights with Remembranza, the second full Murcof album that creates a storied, layered framework within strict microboundaries. Born in Tijuana in 1970, Corona was primarily known as a member of Mexico's celebrated Nortec (Norteno-Techno) Collective before his first full-length, Martes, was released in 2002. His revolutionary Murcof work recontextualizes the work of his beloved European contemporary classical composers (including the likes of Arvo Prt, Henryk Grecki and Giya Kancheli) within minimal electronic structures. It's a trick that others have tried to pull off, but none with Corona's lightness of touch, or widespread appeal. The pieces here incorporate traditional instrumentation recorded especially for the album (including strings, piano and harp), working in tandem with his passion for new and unexplored rhythms. A sublime album of texture and depth, Remembranza reaches the apex of Corona's explorations, and re-establishes him as an artist at the forefront of electronic music." [press release]
