Francisco López’s “DSB” reviewed by Felthat

Francisco Lopez is a man institution. Creatively active in the field recording and musique concrete, he elevated the art of both to something completely different. His newest album is no different but definitely somewhat of a surprise. 

The processing of the field recordings is his trademark – you might be surprised how nuanced and elaborate it can be – here we have lots of difficult to distinguish soundscapes, sometimes quite raw and noisy. There is a lot of realism to his narrative, and especially in terms of watery sounds and sounds related to anything that has to do with water. It’s a persistent exploration, a sure hand of choice to the sound and compiling them together is both resonating and dramatic.
