Khandroma [2016]

In the spring and summer of 2016 Soundwalk Collective and Francisco López traveled to Upper Mustang, Nepal, to record the sounds in and surrounding the world’s highest monasteries—the flapping of prayer flags, the chanting of blessings, the echoes of wind from the valley below, and the interplay of sound and silence. These sound environments are presented as a multi-channel audio installation through state-of-the-art speakers, creating an immersive and meditative experience.

Entitled Khandroma, after a spiritual muse in Tibetan Buddhism, the piece is currently on view at the Rubin Museum in NYC as a multi-channel audio installation through state-of-the-art speakers.
