Mary Anne hobbs played some of it a few days ago on her BBC6Music show. Murcof x Wagner will open a new chapter of their discograhy in June with the release of EP02.  

EP.02 offers up three new interpretations of Philip Glass, Morton Feldman and Arvo Pärt pieces, where analogue explorations and bare piano notes meet the open forms of the minimalist canon. This is the third record in a series following Statea, the album released by Murcof & Vanessa Wagner in September 2016 and EP.01 released a few months earlier, which introduced individually the two protagonists and their respective instruments. EP.02 brings together three unreleased movements whose narrations sound so complementary that they seem to merge into a unique and cosmic stroll.

EP02 will be available in 12" via The Vinyl Factory and digital in June. 

The duo will also play a few shows in France including InFiné´s favorite place in Montreuil / Paris  and Metz's Arsenal / Ondes Messines , where they performed one their first shows a few years ago.
