"Francisco's lone recorded work, Cosmic Beam Experience, which appeared on Cosmic Beam records in 1976, attracted the recent attention of music and film aficionados when its Cosmic Beam motif was sampled by movie composer Hans Zimmer in his soundtrack to Terrence Mallick's 1998 film, The Thin Red Line. Although the film, which featured such luminaries as Sean Penn, George Clooney, John Cussack, Nick Nolte and even John Travolta, was widely dismissed as an over-long and confusing piece of visual self-indulgence, Zimmer's soundtrack, and particularly Francisco's contribution, are often sited as the film's only redeeming factors. Francisco was actually the LA-based Francisco Lupica, a versatile musician at home with electric and acoustic guitars, percussion and in his capacity as a singer, well versed in unusual vocal effects. Lupica even designed a proprietary sound system able to reproduce a full range of frequencies across the full aural spectrum which delivered an extraordinary sound experience."
