You’ve probably never heard anything quite like this before…
On Thursday evening, acclaimed composer-sound artist Francisco Lopez presents the world premiere of his new work, “Hyper-Rainforest,” with a concert at the Concert Hall at RPI’s EMPAC in Troy. The sound-piece is created entirely from various rainforest field recordings that Lopez has collected over the course of the past decade.
The site-specific concert-installation for the EMPAC Concert Hall of EMPAC will be presented with a specially installed, large, multi-channel set-up consisting of 80 speakers arranged around, above and below the audience. “Hyper-Rainforest” is a truly immersive sound experience.
Lopez’s “Hyper-Rainforest” will have a three-night stand at EMPAC at RPI – at 8pm Thursday-Saturday, April 28-30. Tix are $15; seniors and students $10.
