Description by Esc.rec .:

"The album'untitled (2019)' by Francisco López was entirely created in 2019 and composed of a variety of very different pieces. Even though the pieces have very different origins, they all come together in a fascinating sonic trip, with the supreme quality and attention to detail you've come to expect of Francisco López. He himself humbly refers to this album as'a killer'. Couldn't agree more.

Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene. For almost forty years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory and spiritual expansion.

He has realized hundreds of concerts, projects with environmental recordings, workshops and sound installations in over seventy countries of the six continents. His extensive catalog of sound pieces (with live and studio collaborations with hundreds of hundreds of international artists) has been released by nearly 400 record labels / publishers worldwide. He has been awarded four times with honorary mentions at the competition of Ars Electronica Festival and is the recipient of the Qwartz Award 2010 for best sound anthology. "

Review by Sven Schlijper-Karssenberg in Vital Weekly:

"No title. Francisco López has amassed a body of published works without the need for an accompanying title totalling now more than # 378 with this release, itself – again – untitled, and counting, we presume. The grandmaster of massive, engrossing works of delicate yet wholly inescapable crescendos between almost not-there fragility in near-silence and thundering sound masses of tumbling boulder-like scale here presents a variety of pieces, all created in the year 2019, all composed of different source materials, pieces, origins. And although these pieces, all eight of them, are of isolated, idiosyncratic, individual nature, each one a world of dense detail and tactile textures to behold, the album form and format, the juxtaposing and setlist-ish build-up of the collection (strangely this record has a live feel to it), invokes a Franz Kline-like broad stroke power move, intended to underscore the maturest of masterful practices in aural art – the Olympian heights López has reached. Ove his is a world as much of telegraph bleeps as it is one of the wind-strewn deserted snow plains or deep dark silver grotto-ambiences. A López experience, however, above all, is one of perception and listening pushed to its limits – offering transcendent immersion and blissful expansion of the senses (plus, maybe, if you are so inclined, the soul too). Untitled (2019) marks a true highlight in the maestros wide and deep catalog: (a) magnum opus engagement (no remix!) Of sound matter – the basics of his craft and trade – refined, purified to the very essence: "like getting hit in the face with a baseball bat. Or better, like getting hit in the back of the neck. You never see it coming; it just knocks you down ”(to quote American artist Bruce Nauman commenting on his intention with his works).”
