His new Album, “The Versailles Sessions” will released first of December 2008.
Murcof is the performing and recording name of Mexican electronica artist Fernando Corona. Corona was born in 1970 in Tijuana, Mexico and raised in Ensenada. He was for a time a member of the Tijuana-based Nortec Collective of electronic musicians under the Terrestre project name.
Murcof’s music is sparse, minimalist, sample-based electronica. Although founded on abstract, glitchy, sometimes complex electronic percussion, Corona’s recordings are more melodic and traditionally structured than many contemporary electronic musicians. Many recordings feature orchestral strings sampled from recordings of works by modern composers such as Arvo Pärt.
