susanna lópez

Susana López aka Susan Drone (Murcia, España). Visually trained artist, experimental composer and Master in Electroacoustic Composition. She has been working with sound and light, exploring how these intangible materials can act as catalysts to focus our consciousness and alter our perception. Her experimental compositions are made from field recordings that she transforms and combines with electronic sounds in an attempt to create hypnagogic states.

She has participated in Sound Art projects with internationally renowned artists as Francisco López or Thomas Bey William Bailey.

She has also given workshops about Field Recordings and Creation of Soundscapes and Pioneering of Experimental Music.

She has carried out Sound Art installations as Noosfera Sonora, in Puertas de Castilla Cultural Centre, Murcia, and Arquitecturas sonoras, collective sound installation in CentroCentro, Madrid.

She has published her works in compilations like Murcia Materia Sonora (Francisco López, Murcia), Oír Arte (Madrid), Musica Dispersa Vol 1 (Música Dispersa, London), Microtopies (Gràcia Territori Sonor, Barcelona), El Arte y su sonido (LABoral, Gijón), Homenaje a Aram Slobodian (AMEE- Spanish Electro-acoustic Music Association, Valencia), Vinfonies (Barcelona).

Since 2010, she carries out the cataloguing and digitization of SONM, the Sound Archive of Experimental Music and Sound Art at Puertas de Castilla Cultural Centre (Murcia), established in 2010 by Francisco López.
