Murcof

Murcof is the stage name of Mexican electronica artist Fernando Corona. Corona was born in 1970 in Tijuana, Mexico and grew up in Ensenada. He was a temporary member of the Nortec Collective of Electronic Musicians in Tijuana under the name Terrestre. He returned to Tijuana in 2000. Since 2006, Corona has been living in Barcelona, Spain.

Murcof's music is sparse, minimalist and electronic. Many of his compositions are based on abstract, glitchy, sometimes complex electronic percussion instruments. Harmonic and melodic influences come from classical music (modern classical music, conquète music, holy minimalism, micropolyphony, baroque music, etc.), ambient music, drone music, Berlin synthesizer music, ethnic music and free improvisation also find influence. His rhythms derive from minimal techno, dub, glitch, industrial music, and IDM, and are often set to a 4/4 time signature. However, the newer works in Murcof's catalog no longer contain electronic beats.
