Experimental sound composer Francisco López will give a debut live sound performance at Bangkok 1899 at Ban Chao Phraya Thammasakmontri, Nakhon Sawan Road, on Saturday and Sunday at 6.30pm.
Held with the support of the Embassy of Spain, this is the first chance for Thai audiences to capture exclusive sound art and experience experimental music in the dark while blindfolded, in a one-of-a-kind performance said to destroy the boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments.
His sound work is reputed to shift with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening experience. It frees the audiences from the imperatives of knowledge, inviting them to open to sensory and spiritual expansion.
Internationally recognised as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene, the avant-garde sound artist from Madrid has developed an astonishing sonic universe for almost 40 years. It is completely personal and iconoclastic and based on profound listening to the world.
López has performed hundreds of concerts, projects with environmental recordings, workshops and sound installations in over 70 countries on six continents. His extensive catalogue of sound pieces (with live and studio collaborations with hundreds of international artists) has been released by nearly 400 record labels and publishers worldwide.
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.
