New Release: MURCOF x WAGNER «Statea»

STATEA_3402127313052626473

MURCOF x WAGNER present their new album, “Statea“, a reference to the old Italian for ‘scales’ – and a nod to the perfect balance between two units of measurement.

Appearing unusual at first, this collaboration between Mexican ambient figurehead Fernando Corona (better known as Murcof) and multi-award winning French classical pianist Vanessa Wagner surrenders to a sublime logic. Both classically trained, their career paths took different trajectories, but converged towards the same enthusiasm when it comes to minimalism. The project was initiated in 2010 at InFiné´s own creative retreat – the Workshop InFiné festival in Normandoux next to Poitiers in France. Six years on from that initial meeting, and many captivating performances later, they’ve crafted a unique studio album that captures the essence of their concert.

Statea showcases a wide-ranging conception of minimalism including compositions by Philip Glass, Ligeti, John Cage, Erik Satie or Aphex Twin. The album is set for worldwide release on September 23rd.

Bandcamp Daily – Album of the Day “A sort of crash-course in 20th-century classical music remade in ways that celebrate the source.
