Fernando Corona established himself as Murcof with his long-playing debut, "Martes" for Leaf in 2002. His fusion of micro-rhythms and deconstructed classical notation has led him to records for labels as diverse as Sutekh's Context records and also jazz stalwart, Blue Note.
The film, directed by Ivan Duenas in 2009 and inspired by Jose Carlos Becerra’s poems, tells the story of six characters who mutate into new bodies. Deep down, all six keep traces of their past lives, of the former bodies they miss; deep-seated nostalgia has a strong hold on them. The vast Mexican desert combines with Murcof’s vaporous soundscapes to form the backdrop of a tale hovering between tragedy and science fiction, which unfolds in a timeless world devoid of points of reference. The narration moves from one character to
another, and the characters from one body to the next, guided by the themes Murcof has created, which may remind his most faithful followers of his “Remembranza” period (released in 2005 by Leaf).
InFiné welcomes to the family this new version of the soundtrack to the film “La Sangre Iluminada”. Initially composed and re-edited for the occasion by Murcof, this vinyl-exclusive LP was mastered by another sound sorcerer, Rashad Becker, from Dubplate Mastering studios.
