# 1337 The Art of Sound

 

This week we take you into the world of artists who use sound as their medium.

 

Shifting Reality

Francisco Lopez is one of the world’s leading Sound Artists.  He has been creating art for over 30 years.  His background in Biology and Ecology has taken him all over the world for research projects.  During this time, in these naturally rich environments he’s captured sound.  These natural sounds are then layered into incredibly complex works to transport the listener to an alternate reality.  All the Best caught up with Francisco Lopez during his recent visit to Australia, to find out more about his work and his passion for sound.

Memory Lane

The laneway’s of The Rocks in Sydney is where past meets present.  Old buildings and architecture, rich with history, are a gateway to the past and to the first Europeans who settled on the site.  All the Best took a trip down memory lane with the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority to find out about some of the sins, virtues and characters of the old city.
