Francisco Lopez is internationally recognised as one of the major figures of the sound  experimental music scene who has, over the last thirty years, developed an astonishing sonic universe, based on a profound listening of the world.

He was first invited to Birmingham by Modulate in 2007, to give one of his legendary ‘Total Darkness’  performances, and we were delighted when he subsequently suggested returning to direct Birmingham Sound Matter. After a series of workshops led by Lopez earlier this year, the participants created a shared a pool of location recordings made in the city, which subsequently underwent a series of  transformations through further collective and creative processes. These recordings and transformations  have formed the basis of  the final compositions. which will be heard in concert on the night.

Lopez has previously directed two similar projects, Montreal Sound Matter and Brussels Sonic Matter

Supported by PRS Foundation  and  Arts Council England.
