About Murcof

Mexican-born musician Fernando Corona primarily records and performs under the name Murcof, creating ghostly compositions that fuse elements of classical music, minimal techno, ambient drone, and free improvisation, among other genres. His first album, 2002's Martes, blended the holy minimalism of composers like Arvo Pärt and Henryk Górecki with glitchy, microscopic beats. He abandoned techno influences and focused more on collaborating with live musicians on later releases like 2008's The Versailles Sessions; additionally, he has recorded albums or performed with Talvin Singh, Erik Truffaz, Philippe Petit, and others. Murcof's ambitious 2021 full-length The Alias Sessions encompassed all of the project's sonic hallmarks, from sparse, eerie ambience to minutely detailed beats.
