This duo features the enchanting voice and personality of Petra Magoni and her interaction with bassist Ferruccio Spinetti.
I would never have found Musica Nuda in the first place. The unexpected Italian duo has been collaborating since 2003 and has released four recordings over that period, with Petra Magoni providing the threadbare vocals and Ferrucio Spinetti the minimalist accompaniments on his upright bass (although as Renaud Garcia Fons has aptly demonstrated, minimalist on a straight bass can mean a tremendously diverse palette of sounds). Musica Nuda (naked music or more accurately undressed in this context) means that the duo take more or less famous songs and compositions and strip them to their very core, the bare essence. Petra’s voice—fragile and at times simply whispered—supports this approach particularly well but as she on occasion demonstrates, her voice can come out of hiding when desired. Ferrucio’s bass accompaniment is always clever and discreet, never intrusive.
Whether it's with Lennon’s "Imagine", Police’s "Roxanne" or some obscure Italian pop songs from the 80s, the result is always unexpected and often revelatory, in all cases far away from the standard re-re-re-recordings we are overwhelmed by. Barb Jungr in her homage to Dylan plays with contrasts and injects her own soul and emotions in the songs to create something radically different from the originals. Musica Nuda chooses to bare down on the rhythmic and poetic fabric of the originals and strip away anything extraneous. These are two distinctive approaches for equally thrilling results in an exercise where many stumble and fall. This too is a Blue Moon award if I ever heard one. - 6Moons Blue Moon Aaward.

The story of fonè
In the context of classical and jazz music market, fonè proposes three decades of recordings using advanced techniques, aimed at the recovery of the original musical atmospheres.
Each new recording is the result of a passionate encounter between art and the art of execution and aims to recreate and reproduce the same spirit with which the works of the past have been performed. One basic feature that makes the difference between fonè and others, is the recording of musical works in natural places and original, constant production that leads to choose from time to time historically more space? Suitable for: church, theater, villa, living room ...
All this is done by retrieving a simple incision that does not do violence to the music: all the equipment is in high definition. Using pairs of valves Neumann microphones in the years 1947 and 1949 (U47, U48 and M49) using techniques very natural timbre bimicrofoniche field effect. These microphones have an important story: they are the microphones used to record the Beatles at Abbey Road Studio and RCA for the "Living Stereo."
No use is made of electronic manipulation of the signal, nor any artificial correction that if they make a sound easier to carve, it is true that distort so unacceptable. With this method you get to transfer the music information on the standard analog for the production of virgin vinyl 180g & 200g
fonè uses for the standard analog Nagra 4S, Studer C37 and J37 and Ampex ATR 102, the standard for digital, in collaboration with Philips the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology that has opened the doors to the SACD.
