Brandon Lopez

(B. 1988)

is a musician who deals with improvised and composed music (if one likes to make a distinction). His work as been praised as “brutal” and “relentless”.

He’s worked beside many of experimental music’s luminaries; Jooklo Trio, Nate Wooley, Sun Ra Arkestra, Ashley Fure, Okkyung Lee, Gerald Cleaver, Ingrid Laubrock, Tony Malaby, Tyshawn Sorey, Bill Nace, Steve Baczkwoski, Chris Corsano, and many others.

He was the 2018 Artist in Residence at Issue Project Room and a Van Lier Fellow at Roulette Intermedium. In September 2018 he was featured soloist with the New York Philharmonic.


New release

Across eight tracks, Lopez lays out a masterclass in how an artist can achieve mind-mangling synergies with their instrument, his shamanistic absorption in his playing resulting in a thrilling voyage through low-end meditation (‘vanitas’), pugilist jolting grooves (‘Lamed’) and clouds of nervy plucks (‘Lay’).
— We Need No Swords
I wouldn’t blink an eye if someone told me [quoniam facta sum vilis] was their favorite solo bass recording they’d ever heard.
— Keith Prosk
Brandon Lopez shreds bow over contrabass strings with frontal lobe violence…The album’s eight tunes glint murderous beauty as they push forward in rhythmic cycles like strangulated breath.
— Rick Weaver
