‘HIMAVANTA’ - Francisco López

June 2023

World-renowned audio-artist and experimental musician, Francisco López will perform the world premiere of his new sound composition, ‘HIMAVANTA’ at Bangkok 1899 on 23 - 24 June. These performances are the second section of a two-part residency supported by the Embassy of Spain in Bangkok. They will be created exclusively with original environmental recordings of Thailand’s rainforests, which were recorded during the first part of the artist’s one month residency last September-October at Bangkok 1899.

During his residency, López utilized his philosophy of exploring the sensorial and ontological reality with a blind, profound and tran
scendental listening, reinterpreting what he calls an ‘anthropoEXcentric’ understanding of wilderness sound environments and sonic creatures. López’s new performances will creatively work with a myriad of these new original materials and live sound spatialization to expand our reality and give rise to a new and unique immersive experience of Thailand’s rainforests.

The Hollywood Climate Summit is an annual multi-day conference that creates a community space for thousands of cross-sector entertainment and media professionals to take action on climate. It gathers filmmakers, executives, artists, activists, climate organizations, scientists, and other experts primarily based in LA, as well as from around the world, for interactive action-oriented programming and professional development opportunities. There are two formal conference days on June 22nd and June 23rd: Jam-packed with programming from 9am-5pm (PT) in-person at our venue (to be announced soon) in Los Angeles. Programming will also be streamed to our virtual conference platform. We invite creative industry professionals and climate activists in Thailand and the greater ASEAN region to participate and help us grow our community of change-makers!

Some of the topics include: climate fashion trends, sustainable production, the creation change through social media, intergenerational conversations, decolonization of climate storytelling, disability representation in climate storytelling.
