About

Live in London 2010

Gregorio Fontaine Correa (a.k.a Gregorio Fonten) is currently a PhD candidate in Sonic Arts at the Department of Music in Goldsmiths College, working with field recording, sound and visual poetry, songwriting and generative/algorithmic computer design for audio and video.

His work has been described as one of ramshackle and unique songs, whose effect is hallucinatory, corrosive; both strange and beautiful.

Freely combining field recording, huayno and cumbia rhythms, sound poetry and microtonality, his music is as much part of a local tradition as his own original creation.

He has been an active exponent of experimental poetry in Chile; with works published in Chile, Mexico and UK.

He has participated in the bands Hijos del Condor and Cuchufleta.
