Gregorio Fontaine Correa a.k.a Gregorio Fontén is a musician and poet from Chile.
Mainly a songwriter, his music has ranged from orchestral works to rock bands, from surround electronics to a cappella singing.
He has been described as a dark Satie whose ramshackle and unique songs are hallucinatory, corrosive; both strange and beautiful.
He has participated in bands like Cuchufleta and Hijos del Condor .
He presents his solo set for the dancefloor as Winka Wayno Sound System.
In relation to the generation of Chilean musicians active in the 21st century, Fonten’s music has been described as one of the most unclassifiable and interesting. His language is considered as one of multiple dialogues, unfolding a sound that is both his personal creation as part of a bigger tradition.
His book Contemplacion was published in 2001 by Libros de la Elipse. By the end of 2003 the group Foro de Escritores was formed and Fonten channelizes his poetry activities through that group. Together with other members of FDE, Fonten is considered one of the main exponents of experimental poetry of the 21st century in Chile. He has worked with visual, sound, digital poetry and in conventional texts. Of the latter, the Chilean poet Claudio Bertoni has written that they are “good to the point of personal and instransferable jelousy.”
