Francisco Lopez Kickstarter Project

Francisco Lopez has launched a Kickstarter funding project for his Mamori Sound Project, the annual fortnight long artist’s residency and workshop in the Amazon rainforest. In exchange for funds pledged to take eight US sound artists into the rainforest, Lopez offers a digital diary, original photographs, MP3 audio clips of up to 24 hours long of sound recordings made by the workshop’s participants.

The Mamori Sound Project has been in existence since 2005 (although the global financial squeeze meant last year was cancelled), and is run jointly by Lopez and Mamori ArtLab, and includes field recording, discussions and session of laptop based studio work.
