Hidden Island Music (untitled #398) (vinyl LP)

Francisco López - Hidden Island Music (untitled #398) (vinyl LP)
Francisco López offers a brand new field recording composition based on the recordings he did in the island of Tenerife whilst visiting for a performance at the Keroxen Festival, 2020.
Internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene, Francisco López has an ear-like gift to point his microphones (and our ears) to the most special and unlikely of sound sources. For almost forty years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, the presentation here is not unlike his most famous and celebrated works whilst still maintaining its unique relevance among a prolific catalogue of sounds.
Entitled Hidden Island Music the work explores its aforementioned "hidden sounds" of Tenerife with a high sensorial mix of environmental and "industrial" recordings taken in and around the Massifs of Teno and Anaga and later composed into a unique sonic journey through the huge sound pits of this rugged region of north Tenerife.
Another masterful work from one of the masters of his craft, shifting from the limits of our perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, a profound and transcendental listening open to sensory and spiritual expansion.
