KETY FUSCO



Kety Fusco graduated in Classical Harp from the Conservatory in Italy at the age of 21, and in just two years toured Europe with her fresh project and inseparable electric harp. Kety has developed a unique sound through the vision of a new harp, searching for non-traditional sounds that you would never expect to hear from a harp. She works with Delta electric harps from Salvi Harps, who have chosen Kety as their official ambassador. Kety Fusco’s harp and technology exploration started with her successful debut album DAZED (Universal distribution) described by Swiss critics as "a rare breed". With DAZED, Kety indeed chose not to follow the tradition of harpists who discover the harp through classic reverbs and loops: she forges a new artistic identity for the harp basing her sound system, for example, with sounds of a vinyl scratched on metal strings, some objects hit on the soundboard of the pre-sampled classical harp, and analog effects manipulated live. Kety Fusco has more than 80 concerts all over Europe, and is working on the world's first library of non-traditional harp sounds.

REVIEWS


"The Queen of Electric Harp" Swiss Live Talents

“..Her way of playing had something fascinating, trance-like, which was received with great applause by the audience." Suedostschweiz CH

"..It is a surprising immersion in unknown and suggestive territories, where electronics meet classic tradition and trace a new and original path." Rockit IT

“Musically DAZED is simply absurd: the strings of the harp merge with the digital notes of electronics, modern, minimalist, giving life to a combination out of any scheme, a combination that leaves the listener's mark. The nine tracks of the disc are a caledoscope of emotions in which the most desperate sensations are reflected: disturbance, energy, adrenaline, fear. DAZED is a mental escape from reality” Receindie IT

"Dazed, the debut album by Kety Fusco is surprising and shows that unexplored sounds still exist on the planet. It is a delicate, soft and suggestive trip” Confederation Music CH

"..It is a surprising immersion in unknown and suggestive territories, where electronics meet classic tradition and trace a new and original path." Rockit IT "... brilliantly immerses the traditional sounds of her instrument in an electro universe." Mowno FR

"... we were able to try our biggest surprise: Kety Fusco on her harp, electronically enhanced, with loops, effects and bass pedals. An apparition that is not ashamed of the effort between classical, techno and rave - and that presents the musician as a physically reciting and fascinating master, a great talent, a name you must remember!” Artnoir CH
