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 a sublime logic. Both classically trained, their career paths took different trajectories, but converged toward the same enthusiasm when it comes to minimalism.
On the one hand, Vanessa Wagner decided to stay close to the original score and respect the sheet music in the “classical sense”. Her quality to interpret has been rewarded with a “Victoire de la Musique classique” award, the ultimate recognition for a French Classical Musician. Despite her wide-ranging repetorie, she never hides a willingness to open her musical spectrum to modern compositions.
On the other hand, Murcof was initially invested in post-punk band Sonios and dance-punk collective Nortec before refocusing his solo career on extensive research of sound design and textures. In 2008, Alexandre Cazac (A&R of InFiné) invited Murcof to collaborate with a classical orchestra to perform for the Palace of Versailles. Two years later, Vanessa Wagner and Fernando decided to work together on a live performance, following their initial meeting at Workshop InFiné in France.
Both musicians found the spaced-out compositions of Arvo Pärt, Ligeti, John Cage, Erik Satie or Philip Glass a musical playground where they could express their own qualities. The selection permeated by a wide-ranging conception of minimalism, including illustrious and more obscure contemporary classical pieces barely disrupted by a short and decisive inclusion from an iconoclastic figure of electronic music, Aphex Twin ‘Avril 14th’.
