Former Nortec Collective member Murcof (a.k.a. Terrestre, Fernando Corona) takes minimal electronica to the conservatory. Murcof‘s 2002 debut disc, Martes, earned kudos for its lithe assemblage of glitchy textures, surgical beats and lush, neo-classical timbres. The Mexican producer effectively made holy-minimalist composers like Górecki and Pärt do the clicks‘n‘cuts jitterbug. On Remembranza, Murcof engineers a painstakingly intricate mosaic of classical/chamber- orchestral atoms into somber, haunting compositions for 21st-century ears. His sporadic beats are generally muted and skittery, with gorgeously languorous piano motifs and pathos-laden strings. Observe a master at work.
