Francisco López Performances

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Sunday 26/7/09
Institute of Modern Art
, Brisbane
FREE. 7pm.

Over the past 25 years, the concerts and installations of Spanish sound-artist Francisco López have generated astonishing sonic universes. His personal, iconoclastic work is grounded in a profound listening to the world, through which he seeks an absolute transformation of reality through sound.

Performing first in Brisbane for the Queensland Music Festival as part of IMA’s MONO series, López will deliver one of his trademark performances in which audience members are offered blindfolds to focus their ears. López does the rest, re-contextualising sound materials ino an auditory feast.

In Cairns, López will undertake a residency, conducting field trips to collect sounds and explore the breadth of the sonic environment. The sounds he collects will be used in a one-off surround-sound performance at The Tanks.
