Francisco LópezPresented with Azimuth
Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures in the sound art and experimental music scene. For almost forty years he has been working on his astonishing sonic universe, which is absolutely personal and iconoclastic and based on a profound listening to the world.
López destroys boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power. He proposes a (sometimes literally) blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory and spiritual expansion.
The artist has realized hundreds of concerts, projects with environmental recordings, workshops and sound installations in over seventy countries. He has been awarded four times with honorary mentions at the competition of Ars Electronica Festival and is the recipient of the Qwartz Award 2010 for best sound anthology.
This performance is presented in collaboration with Azimuth, an organization for the production and performance of electroacoustic music in the Netherlands. It will take place in the Fulldome, an immersive 360-degree projection environment by The Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) of Montréal.
