Francisco López "Untitled (1999)" (CD - Subsounds Records, Australia, 2001)
Prolific Madrid-based sound artist Francisco López has recorded his powerful minimal electroacoustic for the past twenty years, including a catalog of over 100 works on over 70 labels around the world. His first release for an Australian label is released on Subsound Records (www.subsound.com), a new startup Sydney-based label aiming to release challenging musics from a variety of experimental styles. Untitled (1999) is released late 2001 to coincide with López' first Australian tour, currently receiving critical acclaim.
Comprising 7 untitled works ranging from one minute to eighteen minutes in length and recorded over the past three years, the release presents a wide ranging selection of López' styles, typically representative of his dynamic live performances. Distant, subtle oceans of processed sound environments and selective use of silence contrast with powerful waves of full-frequency drones. Sound for deep listening at high volumes. Minimally packaged in a clear slimline jewel case, Untitled (1999) is released in a limited edition of 500 copies. Subsound Records (Australia, 8/01)
