Kety Fusco

Kety FuscoĀ begins to play the Harp at the age of 7 and shortly after she is admitted to theĀ ā€œConservatorio Luigi Boccheriniā€Ā in Lucca, Italy. She soon begins to participate at International Contests and receives awards from the 7 th Rassegna Musicale Giovani Arpisti di Lastra a Signa (Florence) and at the XIV Concorso Nazionale Riviera della Versilia di Viareggio (Lucca). After her High School degree she decides it is time to take a new road and moves to Brescia where she is admitted to theĀ ā€œConservatorio Luca Marenzioā€Ā and graduates in the study of Harp. Being always a curious person she decides to experiment new musical worlds and in 2012 participates at a three week campus ofĀ Ā M. MogolĀ of the European Center of Toscolano. At the end of the campus Kety was able to compose a pop song entitledĀ ā€œLa settimana Dominanteā€Ā that was selected as one of the best songs and was performed at the final closing concert. Not yet covinced to complet the formation with the classical music and dissatisfied with the climate that Italy reserves to art, she decides to move to Mesocco, Switzerland the city where her father lives. In 2013 she attende theĀ Master of Arts in Music PerformanceĀ at theĀ ā€œConservatorio della Svizzera Italianaā€Ā where she obtained, 3 years later, the title of Master with excellent results. Kety has played as first harp with several orchestras, such as the Venetial Philharmonic Orchestra ā€œGianfrancesco Malipieroā€, the Chamber Orchestra of Lugano directed by M. Stefano Bazzi and as a soloist with the Giuseppe Verdi Philharmonic Orchestra of Calci (Pisa) performing in the ā€œDanze Sacre e Profaneā€ di Debussy. The years of the conservatory, however, have left a deep trace: the music has led to an extreme form of autism that the psychologist himself calledĀ ā€œautism of the harpā€; Lost contact with the surrounding world and not completely satisfied with the work done, she decided to experiment with a new instrument, theĀ Electric Harp, with which she began a new path of study with her friend and musicianĀ Zeno Gabaglio. Facing again a tormented time but determined and convinced to have taken the right direction, begins various collaborations with the singerĀ Nadine CarinaĀ with whom she performs in a concert for the Fondation Suisa, withĀ Charlie RoeĀ who sees her in concert for the Dies Accademicus of the University of Italian Switzerland and with theĀ ā€œNitonā€Ā with whom she will play at the Lux cinema of Massagno (Switzerland). In October 2016 she met theĀ Peter Kernel, a rock band from the alternative Ticinese scene, with whom she arranges, together with theĀ ā€œWicked Orchestraā€, the original PK songs, thus creating a live set that they toured in autumn 2018. Kety tours Europe playing in important festivals includingĀ Les RockomotivesĀ in VendĆ“me (France) andĀ Hop Pop Hop FestivalĀ in Orleans (France), and in historic venues such as theĀ MoodsĀ in Zurich, TheĀ Petit BainĀ in Paris, TheĀ AntipodeĀ in Rennes, theĀ Atelier 210Ā in Brussels, sharing the stage, among others, with famous musicians such asĀ Yann Tiersen, Julian Sartorius and Rebeka Warrior. During the tour she feels the need to write her own songs and in January 2017 she released her first singleĀ ā€œFloating Fragmentsā€, a unique composition of its kind, created with electric harp, loop machines, synthesizers, sub. Of classical inspiration but with electronic / experimental influences, Kety does not forget the lesson from the great musicians including Alva Noto, Yann Tiersenn, Jon Hopkins, Terry Raley. The journey as an independent artist is traced: the singleĀ ā€œTears & Dropsā€Ā andĀ ā€œMoving in the Dark”Ā come out.Ā In 2018 she founded a booking agency, the ā€œFuture Ex Recā€, with which she formed cooperators and she organizes herĀ Italian TourĀ that will see her in concert in Rome, Milan, Florence, Pisa and Lucca in January 2019, the month in which she will release her fourth single ā€œTotally Meā€, a real hit of electronic mixing and research of sound, will follow in March 2019 her first EP titled ā€œSweet Trance Through Secret Danceā€.
