Francisco Meirino is a Swiss noise-concrete sound artist exploring “electro-acoustic dialectics.” His latest work, “surrender, render, end”, fuses many layers of subtle found-sound recordings and minimal ambient electronics into a deep sonic bath.

Slowly rotting appliances rumble and rattle in hollow warehouses. Fields of electronic insects flutter. Far-off beeps and close-up squeaks.

As the title implies, most of the sounds here are cold, uncomfortable, and a bit harsh, but they sometimes give way to warmer, more inviting moments.?? Memories of long train rides, or the static fuzz of an old television set.
