I am delighted to be part of the invited audience for this forthcoming BBC Radio 3 live broadcast.
Robert Worby presents a live broadcast of a performance by the Spanish electronic composer and sound artist Francisco Lopez. Appearing at London’s Café Oto for the first time, Lopez will perform two forty-minute pieces, specially created for Hear and Now, mixed and diffused in quadraphonic sound through speakers placed in the four corners of the room. Lopez is recognized as one of the foremost artists working with sound today, and has developed a highly original and uncompromising sonic language that utilizes his own recordings made in some of the harshest natural and industrial environments around the world. This broadcast will be made available as 4.0 surround sound, both live and for 30 days after transmission.
