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. His process begins with environmental recordings collected in jungles and sub-tropical forests. But López modifies these source materials until they’re unrecognizable. He’s a musical purist, more interested in abstraction rather than any visual, representational or semantic elements.

During the concert the room will be darkened. López performs from inside a tent, while the audience is blindfolded.

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.
