Kety Fusco: “Music To Make A Dream Come True” is the new horror single by the harpist and sound researcher, out today March 4th, 2022

Kety Fusco transports us into a new era, one of music to make dreams come true and the subversive sounds generated by her sound research on the harp. Music To Make A Dream Come True is an imaginary sound-track composed by the Italian-Swiss harpist, out on all digital platforms today March 4th, 2022 on the international label Floating Notes Records. This soundtrack is the result of a sampling of sounds from Kety’s harp, which she has published in her personal sound library Beyond the Harp, Extreme Extended Experimental, available to artists, producers and art lovers on the website www.ketyfusco.com.

With this sound research, Fusco wants to transform the vision of the harp, moving away from the usual arpeggios and sound carpets that this instrument can easily create, but delving into a world of timbre that one would never think belongs to the harp. Fusco also wants to break away from the world of harp music, making the innovation of the instrument available to everyone, not just harpists: “It would be easy for me to play arpeggios, and create sound worlds thanks to my technique as a harpist that I studied for years at the conservatory, I don’t like playing easy, I want the harp to break out of its harp/arpeggio connotation. I want even a musician who doesn’t play the harp to be able to take a harp in hand and explore it with a more punk approach and not as a harpist“.

Music To Make A Dream Come True blends noise, drones and screams with a magical aura. You can hear the cascades of nails on the strings, followed by vocal resonances emitted inside the sounding board of the harp. Also known as “The Queen of the Electric Harp”, Fusco made this time exclusively use of the classical harp. Music To Make A Dream Come True delivers to the listener for the first time ever a new sound given by the oldest instrument in the world.

The esoteric videoclip of Music To Make A Dream Come True was shot by Francesca Reverito and Riccardo Bernasconi of Studio Asparagus, amidst woods, harps suspended in the air like heretical-mystical instruments, evocations and dances in the grip of possession: “The sound research of Kety Fusco is very suggestive and triggers dreamy images, sometimes disturbing spirits or presences. We have always been attracted to the genre and the Fairy Tale, and also for this reason Music To Make A Dream Come True immediately ‘spoke’ to us”. Fusco confirms the creepy mood of the video: “My dream? Making music for a horror film”.

The result of Kety Fusco’s music is a mix of insistence and passion, electronic music and wild dancing on the one hand and organic research of experimental music on the other. A revolutionary in the world of the harp, Kety Fusco took the music world by storm with her debut album DAZED (Universal distribution), thanks to which she was nominated for three categories during the last Swiss Live Talents Awards in Bern (CH) and performed her compositions in the hall of  The Parliament Building in Bern. Fusco also opened the Locarno Film Festival with an original transcription of the Swiss anthem. During the global pandemic, despite the interruption of live music, Fusco was asked to perform a piece by Ennio Morricone, performing at the Verona Arena. We also remember her collaborations, over the years, with creative musicians like Clap! Clap!, Lubomyr Melnyk and the band Peter Kernel. Fusco reached one of the most important steps in her career in 2021, when she was invited by the United Nations to the SDG Global Festival of Action, sharing the virtual stage with Patti Smith and Ben Harper.

Fusco is currently working on her new record that will be released in summer: a sound research project where the harpist manipulates the sound of the harp with her electronic pedals, scratches the strings, destroys the bow on the strings. With this record Fusco worked on the transformation of the harp sound, starting from the fact that the harp is rich in sound possibilities. With a harp you can create drone sounds, techno drum loops, glitch sounds without using a computer to add digital parts. Made together with the musician IOSONOUNCANE, the master and sound engineer Alessio Sabella and the finalist at the Swiss Grand Prix of Music Aris Bassetti, the record will have its world premiere at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival 2022.
