Kety Fusco
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Kety Fusco performs with two harps on stage, surrounded by darkness and yellow fog

This event has been cancelled.

A revolutionary in the world of the harp, Kety Fusco took the music world by storm with her debut album DAZED and was awarded the title ‘queen of the electric harp’. Kety is currently working on a sound research project which consists of making soundtracks entirely produced by her harp. Kety manipulates the sound of the harp, scratches the strings, screams inside the sounding board, destroys double bass strings by smashing them on her harp. The result of Kety Fusco’s music is a mix of research, insistence and passion, electronic music and wild dancing on the one hand, and organic research of experimental music on the other.

‘THE HARP’ is Kety’s new album, produced by an 80-kilo wooden harp, a carbon electric harp and Kety Fusco's live electronic manipulation. She describes it as an experience: the experience of a journey, which begins with the horsehair rubbing along the strings of the harp and ends, for the moment, with a vibrator beating against the harp's soundboard, producing drones and controversial sounds and an incessant beat of shrieks inside the soundbox.
Thanks to her instinct and willingness to change the connotation and reputation of the harp, Kety Fusco has been invited to prestigious festivals and venues such as Locarno Film Festival (CH), Vision Du Reel Film Festival in Nyon (CH), Arena di Verona (IT), Rockomotives Festival (FR), Kino Siska (SL) Paleo Festival, La Notte della Taranta, Montreux Jazz Festival, Waves Festival (AT), Mama Festival (FR), and to play for the President of the Swiss Confederation, to name a few. She was also invited in summer 2022 to open the French tour of musician Agnes Obel.
