Born in 1975, Francisco Meirino (SP) is active since 1994 (as phroq until 2009) in experimental music and live performance. His music explores the tension between programmable material and the potential for its failure, he is primarily interested in the idea of recording what is not supposed to be : gear failures, the death of PA systems, magnetic fields and electro-static noises and in how he can use them and hear them radically out of context. Francisco Meirino’s music is fascinating by its physical intensity and detail precision.
He mainly works with the computer, (eurorack) modular synthesizer, reel-to-reel tape recorders, magnetic fields detectors, piezo transducers, field recorders and various home-made electronics.
He lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland.
