Spanish artist Francisco López performs a multi-layered live sound projection, Untitled 0304, a new work that shifts from the limits of perception to extremes of sonic power.

He’s more interested in musical purism rather than any visual, representational or semantic elements.

One of the leading figures of the international experimental underground, Francisco López (b.1964, Madrid, Spain) has realized concerts and sound installations all over the world. He made his Chicago debut at Lampo in September 2000.
