InFine, in its grand tradition of presenting a wide-spectrum of performers, nomadic projects, and bold collaborations is proud to deliver a new masterpiece in its discography, on the eve of its 10th Anniversary. The title of the album, Statea is a reference in old Italian to “scales” – and a nod to the perfect balance between two units of measurement. Appearing unusual at first, this collaboration between Mexican Ambient figurehead Fernando Corona (better known as Murcof) and multi-award winning French classical pianist Vanessa Wagner surrenders a sublime logic. Both classically trained, their career paths took different trajectories, but converged toward the same enthusiasm when it comes to minimalism. The project was initiated in 2010 at InFine’s own creative retreat – the Workshop InFine? festival in Normandoux next to Poitiers in France. Six years on from that initial meeting, and many captivating performances later, they’ve crafted a unique studio album that captures the essence of their concert.
