Mamori Sound Project
Workshop/residency for sound artists at Mamori Lake (Amazon, Brazil)
November - December 2008 - 2 weeks

Conceived and directed by Francisco López
"Mamori Sound Project" is a 2-week workshop/residency for professional
and semi-professional artists with previous experience in the area of
sound experimentation and field recordings. It takes place at Mamori
Lake, in the middle of the Brazilian Amazon, and involves
theoretical/discussion presentations, field work and studio work. The
workshop/residency has a special focus on creative approaches to the
work with field recordings, through an extensive exploration of natural
sound environments. It does not have a technical character but is
instead conceived and directed towards the development and realization
of a collective project of sonic creation with the interaction of all
participant artists.

Francisco López, director of “Mamori Sound Project”, is internationally
recognized as one of the major figures of the experimental music and
sound art scene. He is also a Ph.D. ecosystem biologist, with regular
teaching activity in Spain and Latin America. His experience in the
field of sound creation and work with environmental recordings spans
over a period of more than 25 years. His work has been released by more
than 170 record labels worldwide and he has been awarded three times
with honorary mentions at the competition of Ars Electronica Festival.
He has realized hundreds of field recording projects, commissions, live
performances, sound installations and workshops, as well as research in
entomology and ecosystem dynamics, in 50 countries in the five
continents, with a particular emphasis on tropical areas in the
Americas, Africa and Australasia. He has carried out similar workshops
at Mamori Lake over the past few years and has a detailed sonic
knowledge on its surrounding environments.
