- Madrid (Spain), 1964
Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the experimental music scene. Over the last 25 years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory and spiritual expansion.
He has realized hundreds of concerts, projects with field recordings, and sound installations in 50 countries of the five continents. His extensive catalog of sound pieces (with live and studio collaborations with over 100 international artists) has been released by more than 150 record labels worldwide, and he has been awarded twice with honorary mentions at the competition Prix Ars Electronica (Austria).
