"Elevator Bath is immensely proud to present this exquisite new work from one of the major figures of contemporary experimental music. Lopez Island was crafted from original environmental sound matter recorded in Lopez Island during the Winter of 1999-2000. The resulting composition is 51 minutes of both delicate minutiae as well as startling power -- crackling, howling, and haunting. The small island in Washington state provided the beautiful, isolated terrain for López's gathering of raw sounds and, as a personal audio document (though clearly beyond mere documentary), the landscape has been expertly translated. A quintessentially chilling interpretation of the winter beach, Lopez Island is a worthy addition to López's exemplary body of absolute concrète music and, indeed, one of his finest works to date. Packaged inside two elegant printed sleeves of 100% recycled paper, this compact disc has been issued in an edition of 500 copies."
