Murcof from Barcelona is the 5th and last in this series of Artist Residency performances on the 4DSOUND system.
Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Fernando Corona has been working under the Murcof alias for the last twelve years. Developing a distinctive intricacy and depth in his production, his signature is a palpable crossover between the electronic and the classical. Murcof experiments with acoustic warmth and digital precision, incorporating subtle electronic minimalism with a musical language reminiscent of modern classical composers such as Arvo Pärt and Morton Feldman. In his collaborative work with AntiVJ he has explored immersive visual performance to re-interpret his sonic narratives.
For Murcof, his residency at 4DSOUND is an invitation to explore new personal ways of structure and narrative in his music, by means of space.
A Q&A with the artist will take place after the performance.
Lighting and visuals by Daniel Besnyo, Dennis Michael Khieffer Beviz, Istvan Hollos and Ferenc Varga.
Date: May 31st, 2014
Performance starts: 20:30

Greetings friends. Welcome to this week’s Experimedia.net shop update. Before I get into it just a quick note to let you know that I have extended the sale by one week by request. It will now go through April 3rd.
Extra exciting update this week as it includes the first Experimedia release in over a year… and it’s most elaborate yet. Joshua Bonnetta and I have been working together for over a year towards making the release of this special edition of his film “Strange Lines and Distances” a reality. After being blown away by the 2012 release of his film “American Colour” by Giuseppe Ielasi’s Senufo Editions, Joshua approached me with the opportunity to work with him on his next film. When he sent me towards a private screener of “Strange Lines and Distances” I was simply floored and watched it at least a dozen times that week.
This release fully realizes a vision I’ve had for Experimedia since it’s inception and even prior. It goes without saying that this project has been a huge undertaking so to say I am excited to finally see it on it’s way out to world is an understatement. However it wouldn’t have been possible with the help and support of some wonderful people I’d like to thank. Daniel Castrejon of Umor Rex Records for his graphic design talents, Goncalo F Cardoso of Discrepent Records and Evil Llama for his assistance with the video encoding and disc authoring, the folks at the Images Festival in Toronto for their support,Jeffrey Sconce for his eloquent monograph, Andrew Pekler for sharing some words on his experience viewing the installation at Berlinale, and of course Joshua Bonnetta for the privilege of presenting his work.
Experimedia Films presents Strange Lines and Distances, an award winning two-channel audio-visual installation by artist Joshua Bonnetta which examines Guglielmo Marconi’s first transatlantic radio broadcast. Presented as a special limited edition featuring DVD of the film, 12” Vinyl LP containing an extended score, Printed inner sleeve with Monograph by Jeffrey Sconce, Uncoated Gatefold Sleeve, HD Video & Audio Download Coupons and Optional Blu-Ray Add-on. To find out more visit experimediafilms.com. Shipping starts Tuesday April 8th.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and it becomes a special part of your collections. Thank you for your support. On with the new….
Strange Lines and Distances DVD/LP+
Experimedia Films presents Strange Lines and Distances, an award winning two-channel audio-visual installation by artist Joshua Bonnetta which examines Guglielmo Marconi’s first transatlantic radio broadcast. Presented as a special limited edition featuring DVD of the film, 12” Vinyl LP containing an extended score, Printed inner sleeve with Monograph by Jeffrey Sconce, Uncoated Gatefold Sleeve, HD Video & Audio Download Coupons and Optional Blu-Ray Add-on.
The work is inspired by Marconi’s belief that sound waves never completely disappear, but rather diminish incrementally becoming fainter over time. He believed that with an adequately sensitive receiver, one could amplify the echoes of history. Strange Lines and Distances looks at and listens to the past, revisiting Marconi’s original transmission sites in order to explore the hauntological aspects of radio and landscape. The installation invites a consideration of the monumental impact of the first wireless transmission, and explores the medium’s potential to conflate and fragment both space and time.
Strange Lines and Distances dual channels represent the transmission site in Poldhu Cove, U.K. and the receiving site at Fever Hospital, St. John’s, NL. Each historical site is documented using 16mm colour negative film. The sonic composition was created from site-specific field recordings, shortwave and longwave radio recordings and archival material. Mired in static and atmospheric interference, the recordings exist as fragmentary spectres of outport beacons, noise, musical passages and human voice. Visually, each channel contains imagery that resonates and rhymes with the opposing channel in terms of shape, line, color, light and optical geometry. Through a visual examination of the sites’ topographical similarities, the work plays with the juxtaposition of landscape, architectural ruins, flora, and geological and meteorological phenomena. The images unfold as a series of long shots, and this play with duration creates a montage that asks the spectator to consider distance and the poetics of form.
