Fernando Corona aka Murcof arrives at Facade Electronics with The Etna Sessions. This new collaborative work emerges from the audiovisual project Etna, a Portrait that was commissioned in 2015 by ZO (Centro Culture Contemporanee) in Catania, Sicily. The work was made in conjunction with the visual artist Manu Ros, under the alias 'Life Observing Life'. The project premiered at the Castelo Ursino in Catania in July 2015 as part of the i-Art festival programme. For The Etna Sessions, the music was revisited and updated for just audio format, without the support of the imagery as originally conceived. This soundtrack contains field recordings made by the duo in situ in the Parco del Etna for a period of ten days, then processed and complemented with an array of analog and digital tools. The rest of the music is complemented by the use of modular synthesizers that expand this monumental work that wanders between drone, ambient, vaporous dub and minimalist techno.
